Norfolk Lavendar Farm
A while ago on one of our many drives we passed Norfolk Lavender farm and decided one day to come back to investigate. This past weekend we went to see what was there.
There were huge fields of lavender of various variety and of colors. We even saw a white lavender. The scent of the lavender was awesome!!
They also had a distillery on site to extract the oil from the lavender. I really, really wanted to see this process but it was closed on the weekend:(
They are trying to collect all varieties of lavender from around the world.
Had to showcase these pictures. First picture there is a bee coming towards the stem. The second picture has the bee landing on the lavender plant. It was just luck getting these photos:)
This sign says that Norfolk Lavender was recognized by the Prince of Wales.
In addition to the amazing lavender fields there was a flower garden and small animal area.
Willow weaving small rabbit and a den. These are very popular over here in gardens.
Tons of chickens and roosters of all varieties
We had a lovely day out. I am linking this post up to the Field Trip Hop. Stop by and see what else is going on:)!!!
Also join in the NOBH, lots of categories to link up too:)
