In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.”

Wordless Wednesday – Hillside lavender fields in Hitchin

I think I would have to lie down in them for a while.
Yes, that’s how I felt, except for the heat, which drove me to the cafe for lavender and lemon cake!
Beautiful shots. We have some lavender farms here in Central Texas which look very similar. Our season is earlier– May to early July–but the fragrance and color are intoxication.
The amazing thing about this farm is that I lived down the road from it for several years without knowing anything about Hitchin and lavender. Even coming back to the area we still used to travel up to Norfolk to see the purple fields, but then last year I heard about this venture … and it turns out to on rolling countryside, which is much nicer than flat, flat fields in East Anglia.
Wow, that must have been amazing to see and be enveloped in the strong scent of lavender. Were you a relaxed noodle by the time you left? 😉
It was so overwhelming that I’m not sure how I felt by home time!
