As we arrived at Mayfield Lavender Farm, we couldn’t believe what we saw. No need to go to France, the sea of lavender was stunning and their fragrance was intoxicating!
We hurried along … couldn’t wait to get into the midst of it all! But –
Hi MUM! I see you!
Two poos in a sea of purple …
And don’t forget to call home when you’re there.
We were three happy pups in these lavender fields.
But we still couldn’t resist posing for photos.
It was just stunningly beautiful!
May’s comment: I had seen beautiful photos of Mayfield Lavender last year but my lack of driving confidence never got us there. But this year, everyone and every body especially Instagrammers seem to have caught on and there are loads of photos of dogs in lavender fields! And I don’t blame them for making the trip to Banstead – about 45 minutes outside of London – it was stunning!.
It’s a sea of purple/blue. The air was wafting with the sweet smell of lavender.
You cannot pick the lavender in the fields but you can buy them at the shop.
And no picnics allowed. Thank goodness! Can you imagine all the litter otherwise or people sitting down in the middle of the fields?!?!!?!??!
But you can have a snack, afternoon tea …
And all things lavender!
The lavender are in full bloom now. Avoid weekends and even during the weekdays, go early. Lots of tourists, social media posers and anyone who loves lavender! Dogs on leads and good dogs even allowed on the tractor ride.
