Lavender Hill Farm...

How do you get to take such a beautiful picture of a lavender field? 

You take a 20 minute ferry ride to an island and drive a short distance to a fantastic Lavender Farm!

Called Lavender Hill Farm!...click to find out more information...the beautiful 6 bedroom house is available for rent...

they have a little shop with all things lavender in it!

in the potting shed you can stop for some lavender lemonade...

during the summer you can 'you cut' your own lavender....or they can cut for you...

just below the house there are a few different species of lavender and then...

further below the house is a HUGE field that you can cut your own...

they give you clippers and briefly tell you about the different kinds of lavender and away you go to cut away

the view is so picturesque...it is amazing!

you are welcome to sit in the wooden chairs and take in the smells and the view...

Lots of happy harmless bee's
You get ribbon and get to tie your flowers into a bundle.



then you bring it home and get to decide what to do with it.. potpourri? yes that is a great idea! or put a nice bowl of it in your room, another great idea...

This is NOT a good idea..do not make ice cream out of it! You waste all that cream and sugar and eggs...It tastes like soap...seriously. But do go visit the Lavender Farm and smell the heady smells in the fresh sea air!

Cheers to Happy  !!
