At the weekend we were visiting NM's family up North. His Mum had mentioned ages ago that there were some lavender fields near where they lived and to me that just sounded incredible. So since we were up at the right time of year we decided to go and check it out - I was not disappointed! It was completely stunning, not only was all the lavender and flowers beautiful but the views across the countryside were amazing too. I think on days like these I am just in awe of God's creativity and don't think I could ever believe that things like this beautiful just appeared by accident.
Anyway as you would expect I took so many photographs (these are just a small selection). I am saving up for a new camera at the moment so actually took all of these on my iphone but I am pretty pleased with how they came out. I shared the above picture on instagram and it had the most likes I have ever had for a photograph! ha.
There was also a really lovely tea room and we had a yummy lunch there after our exploring.
I was really impressed with this place. It was free to get in, there was a lovely little shop, the food in the cafe was really good and there were some amazing views. The place isn't huge so I would say 1-2 hours would be plenty to explore. If you are in this neck of the woods at the right time of year I would seriously recommend checking it out.
I had a bit of a rubbish week last week, nothing major, just not been feeling myself and feeling a bit down, but a three day weekend in the countryside seriously did me the world of good! Sometimes a change of scenery and a bit of extra headspace is all that is needed to sort me out.
