we returned home to london after our time in the usa, and had just five days before we set out traveling again. the end of ian’s time off was approaching and we wanted to take full advantage of it…! after spending a few days working through jet lag, we took a little day trip out to hitchin lavender fields, just outside of the city. i have been wanting to do this for several years, so i was so excited! the experience did not disappoint – the flower fields felt like a little slice of heaven! we explored and ran in the purple rows and filled our bags full of hand-picked lavender, had a delicious lunch at the cafe and played a lot at the playground right outside the cafe. we finished off the day by sharing a pot of lavender ice cream before catching the train home.
i used an app on my phone to edit the picture above … in reality there were plenty of other people in the lavender fields and it was impossible to get a photograph without photobombers 😉 it was fun to create something new and beautiful in that image, but this is what it really looked like:
it was a gorgeous scene, even dotted with fellow lavender pickers.
such a fun little family day out.
