Fields of Lavender

Fields of Lavender

Lavender is another favourite flower of mine, so I was really excited when I found Hitchin Lavender – a family-run farm specialising in the cultivation of this beautiful flower.

I visited in July last year and while there was lots of lavender, if you visit later in the year, there will be even more! The main flowering season is between mid-June and late August.

You are free to wander across the fields, up and down the rows, taking in the intoxicating smell! You can pick your own lavender or buy lavender products in the shop. You can even take a picnic and sit and enjoy the views.

It’s not just lavender that is grown here – there is a wild flower meadow, and fields of sunflowers which flower from the middle of August.

It’s a lovely place to spend a few hours.

Lavender represents purity, silence, devotion, serenity, grace, and calmness, so let’s enjoy some of that as we wander through the flowers.

Gorgeous isn’t it? 🙂
