Purple Haze

Purple Haze

I didn’t believe we had such beautiful lavender fields in England until I saw them with my own eyes. On probably one of the hottest days of the year we visited Mayfield Lavender field and went equipped with our picnic basket full of goodies.

We arrived, parked up and all you could see to the right was purple. We could have been in Provence. It was beautiful.

We strolled around for ages, going up and down the rows of gorgeous lavender. You can’t help but stop and smell it, there is something so soothing and relaxing about lavender.

We found an opening in one of the rows of lavender and settled down with our picnic basket. Blanket out, we enjoyed some fresh bread and cheese and a cheeky G&T. It was lovely to sit down and take in the beautiful surroundings and enjoy the heat of the sunshine on your back.

Definitely worth a trip back when summer comes around again. I  cannot wait for the fields to reopen in May!
