As a lover of Instagram and following some gorgeous accounts I noticed many a picture of lavender fields on two of my favourite accounts Adventures Of Florence Olive and Hot Pink Wellingtons which looked absolutely beautiful, I simply had to visit. I wasn’t going to write a separate blog post for the lavender fields but as I’m in the process of writing our August round up I’ve realised how many lovely photographs I took here (my camera tells me 643!) and I want to include a few so I hope you don’t mind my indulgence.
Somerset Lavender looked lovely so bundling Tiggy and her brothers into the car we set off in search of the lavender fields.
It was a gorgeously sunny day and we’d packed a little lunch which we ate at a fairytale castle enroute, combining our lunch with a little play for Tiggy and her brothers as the journey was a couple hours duration.
All refreshed and legs stretched we continued on our lavender search passing through some pretty little villages having left the motorway.
By the time we arrived at Somerset Lavender it was late afternoon and timed this way as I wanted to catch the late afternoon and early evening sun for taking pictures.
Somerset Lavender is such a pretty place! We took lots of photos in the lavender although I was a little reluctant to place Tiggy into the rows given the amount of bees, quickly sitting her down to take a few snaps.
The edge of the lavender field was bordered by sunflowers which were so pretty all lit up in the fading sunlight so we took a walk around the field and Tiggy’s brothers stopped to watch the lavender being cut.
There was a flower garden too, with many pictures of Tiggy taken here and a dear old lady who was quite taken with Tiggy helping to get her attention for a photograph. Very sweet.
We headed to the gift and coffee shop, ate some ice cream and Tiggy was completely fascinated with the ducks on the little pond.
The lady here at Somerset Lavender very kindly gave Tiggy some sweet peas which had the most beautiful scent and Tiggy seemed quite taken with them.
We had a lovely hour or so here and know that when we return to a lavender field next year Tiggy will be able to walk the rows of lavender all by herself.
