I recently took a day out to visit a lavender farm on the south coast of the UK. It was something I had always wanted to do and I imagined I would have to visit France to ever set my eyes on a whole field of Lavender.
It was a warm summer’s day. I sat in the field taking in the AMAZING smell, hearing nothing but bees in their millions buzzing busily and watching butterflies chasing each other across the haze of purple. It was pure bliss!
I highly recommend visiting, there are only a handful of public days every year so check it out on their website: http://www.lordingtonlavender.co.uk/
