Ken and Bonnie Swanson welcomed the public to their Evergreen Lavender Farm once again for their annual Lavender Festival on Saturday.

It was a bright, sunny day with a gentle breeze wafting through the air as the parking areas filled with guests coming from Appomattox County and beyond.

Guests could be seen purchasing potted lavender or purchasing an opportunity to pick their own from the farm.
