Wordless Wednesday – A lavender leg massage on a wet day!

Hitchin lavender farm is a stunning sight, even on a damp and dismal day in August

Brushing passed the aromatic stalks is a wonderful, sensual experience

The air is heavy with calming, restful scents

Covid-19 has meant that there is no stopping and picking the flowers this year, but that leaves you to concentrate on the whole, purple haze experience. A glorious exercise in mindfulness.

There are still people around, but limited and at vast distance

The main section of the field is full of later flowering (July/August) intermedia or lavendin types, which had only just started flowering last year when we visited. We timed our visit well as the farm has now started to crop the lavender.

Just to show, it’s not all purple either!

  1. The Beatles missed out on “Lavender Fields Forever. 🙂 If those are scented lavenders then the aroma must go on forever also.

    I love that first photo, I’d love to sit awhile on that bench and take it all in. 🙂

    Heavenly! I have been looking back at some pictures from a lavender field and wondering whether to share them but they aren’t half so nice as yours. What a treat to have this almost to yourself.

    What a gorgeous set of shots!

  6. Eliza Waters says:

    Mmm, must smell heavenly. 😃

    That is fabulous! I adore lavender!

  9. Having just spent the morning stripping the lavender flowers from the cut lavender at the front of the house I really enjoyed this post!
    Lavender really is the best smell in the world!

    I’ve always favored lemon verbena, but now I’m trying to remember what lavender smells like. I’m going to have to track some down tomorrow, so I can imagine the scent of those fabulous fields.
