It’s that time of year again when I make my annual pilgrimage to a lavender farm – you just can’t keep me away!
Although the weather was rainy and cool this year at Snowshill we still had an enjoyable walk through the lavender fields. They have so many varieties here, it’s like a sweetie shop.
Interestingly they plant wildflowers in the adjacent meadow to attract bees.
The views across the fields are amazing and the scent of lavender assaults your senses (in a good way!).
As you can see, the lavender harvesting had already started as the plants in the foreground have had a good shearing. The distillery onsite was busy making essential oil.
As usual, I bought a lavender souvenir: some essential oil, soap and a recipe card for lavender shortbread which I intend to make this weekend.
If you get chance to go to a lavender farm, please go, you won’t be disappointed.
