ROSWELL, STONEHENGE, NOW ROW 19



Since the late 1970s Roswell, New Mexico has been the subject of intense controversy and of theories as to the true nature of the object that crashed there. The incident has turned into a widely known phenomenon, making the name Roswell synonymous with UFOs.

Stonehenge is a unique monument, an icon, an inspiration and part of an important prehistoric landscape. It is a source for finding out more about prehistory and in the development of archaeology.

Now we have ROW 19. When owners Rick and Susan Olson bought this five acre Creekside Lavender Farm it had two acres of lavender consisting of 20 varieties. Each row is numbered and labeled with a name of its kind. One row had no name to identify it, only the number 19 was there. So began the mystery of this row of lavender. Rick had local experts come and try to identify it, but to no avail. So after 5 yrs. it is still ‘Row 19’. The funny thing about this is that Rick said it has become a favorite. Oils and other products sold using it are labeled and sold as Row 19.

When entering the gift shop we meet their two daughters. One of the things you can do there is create your own scent for a spritzer. My daughter loved this.


Rick is an engineer and when he found that my son is a physics major at college he invited him to come see his distillery equipment and then explained the process to him.

This little guy has been placed in the front of Row 19. You will just have to go there and ask them "why?".
