Breathe deeply… and let it out sloooooowly. Now do you feel relaxed?
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

Breathing in the relaxing smell of that lavender, and watching the rain falling, perfect Sunday
Rain falling here too, but not so relaxing…
Suns back today and everything is sparkling
I never used to like lavender. I think I associated it with a bad experience. But I’ve overcome that and I do enjoy it now.
I know some people are irritated by the scent. I used to associate it with old women when I was young (Lavender Water). Now I am an old woman. 😀
Hahaha maybe that was my issue too!
Large expanses of lavender not only smell nice, they look appealing too. Did you ever go to this place, when you were visiting the area?
Best wishes, Pete. x
I was in Norfolk too late to visit the lavender farm, they usually harvest them in late July I believe. I was too early for the one in the Cotswolds! Fortunately we lived close to this particular farm so could time it right 😀
Been ther, yonks ago!
Ooooh, I dooooo…..
Nope! The rain is pitter-pattering just behind me and I’ve resorted to peeling apples for a pie. 🙂 🙂
I could do with some apples, got loads of blackberries ripening in the garden. A bit too wet to go picking them though.
I could do with the blackberries. 🙂 🙂 The last few times we’ve been out and about I’ve meant to take a bag or a tupperware to collect some brambles but I always forget.
I actually don’t like blackberries very much – too seedy.
Raft race on in the harbour here today. I suppose the competitors will get wet anyway but not much fun for spectators 😦
Hampshire, where? I’ll be in Provence too late for lavender.
You are going to Provence? Oh, I am so envious. A part of France I have always wanted to visit.
Oh, the lavender farm is near Selborne
Beautiful photo, Jude. I’ve never seen fields of lavender like this in real life. 🙂
They are quite lovely Cathy. Full of bees too.
