Luscious Lavender

September 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I got together with a bunch of photography friends and had a day trip to the lavender farm at Hitchin, Bedfordshire. I have wanted to shoot a lavender farm for a while now, and I suggested this trip to coincide with the flowering season. We were in luck, as the blooms were beautiful, and highly fragrant. As well as a memory card full of photos, I came away with a brown paper bag full of lavender, which I carefully made in to bunches and hung to dry in our airing cupboard. I'm planning to make some little lavender-filled pouches to hang between the towels in the bathroom to keep them fresh. I might also have a go at baking some lavender scones.
