Norfolk Lavender, England

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.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT SHOWS US A GLIMPSE OF THE INFINITE.

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.

  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.
