This photograph was taken in the lavender fields at Lordington a few years ago on a day when it was open to the public. Just looking at it now I can smell the lavender, hear the buzz of bees and see in my mind’s eye the butterflies fluttering gently over the field. We went with friends and took pictures of each other in this wonderful place. Lavender has so many pluses. Apart from the scent, colour and gracefulness it has healing qualities. It evokes calmness and peace. There are many varieties suitable for large estates, tiny gardens and anything inbetween. It is also easy to grow and gentle to the eyes. Enjoy.
