The Beatles missed out on “Lavender Fields Forever. 🙂 If those are scented lavenders then the aroma must go on forever also.
It was wonderful!
I love that first photo, I’d love to sit awhile on that bench and take it all in. 🙂
Exactly. We did the walk around and then sat with a mug of tea enjoying the view.
Fabulous, what a treat.
Hard to believe it’s England!
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.
I know, right? There are some advantages to having to book timed slots to visit places!
What a gorgeous set of shots!
Thanks, though they don’t fully convey how atmospheric and aromatic it was.
So beautiful! Great place for a nap. 😉
Yes, in other years they have held yoga and meditation classes there during the season.
Mmm, must smell heavenly. 😃
That is fabulous! I adore lavender!
It’s a favourite of mine too! There are other lavender farms fairly close by (in Norfolk) too, but the lovely hillside setting of this one is what really makes this work.
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!
Oh lovely. What are you making with yours?
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.
Lemon verbena is a bit more medicinal I think, still lovely though and great as a tea. Lavender is more mellow and sweeter. I hope you found some to sniff out their differences.
