Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite Lavender Fields

Infinity can produce contrasting effects on (and in) us: it might make us feel dwarfed or amplified, afraid or empowered. It might take the form of a wide panorama or a zoomed-in fraction of an object. A starry sky? A sea of commuters on a train platform? Rows of corn in a field? No pun intended, but the possibilities really are endless.

The heady scent and purple haze of lavender stretching out as far as the eye can see makes for a stunning sight in Norfolk, England.  As we walked through the Laveder fields my senses became awash with vibrant lilac views and strong relaxing aroma that filled the air. Norfolk Lavender is a very memorable landmark sitting within the rolling woods and open fields of the Norfolk countryside.

Amidst the purple is Caley Mill, dating back to 1837. Norfolk Lavender has been England’s premier lavender farm since 1932 and has nearly 100 acres under cultivation. Many of the fields are on the Queen’s private estate in nearby Sandringham which can be viewed by taking an organised tour but there are plenty of varieties and shades to see amongst the 18 acres of grounds at this top Norfolk attraction.

I am addicted to travelling and have been exploring the world for nearly two decades. Here I share my travel stories and pictures so that you can share in some of the amazing experiences I have along the way. When you travel you experience the culture and get to know the people of a country. Once you step out of your comfortzone you get to know the real country and experience it in a different way than ordinary tourists. My camera usually accompanies me everywhere I go so you can "see" and read about my journeys.

  1. Lovely photos. I adore lavenda and am lucky to have a small lavendar farm close to home – I have photos on my blog. Last time we visited we had lavendar shortbread (so delicious) and I made lavendar martinis (even more delicious!) when we returned home. It reminds me of summer.


Please share your thoughts,I would love to know what you think!
