Have you seen those photos on Instagram of the beautiful bright purple rows of lavender in Provence, France? If not, you should Google and/or Instagram it and see what I’m talking about! One of these beautiful images I saw was on the wonderful Lauren Bath’s (@laurenepbath) Instagram account and it reminded me of giant purple worms lounging around the fields.
I soon discovered I wouldn’t have to jet over to France to see this magnificent site (although I still want to!) because just outside of London there are some amazing lavender farms for everyone to enjoy. My adventure last year took me to the Mayfield Lavender Field in Banstead, Surrey.
