There is nothing else to add, except a very big thank you to everyone who visited us this season! the weather was pretty awful in July with most days overcast, windy or wet! but it didn’t put off our fantastic visitors who came from far and wide to take some really beautiful photos in the lavender.
We had lots of very well behaved fur babies visit , including a cat ( who behaved purrfectly on her lead!) and for the fashion aware people, we had some gorgeous outfits too , with amazing colours, matching family outfits , bridal wear, hen-do outfits, wet weather gear, and everyone with the most important thing of all , worn with SMILES!
We enjoyed some lovely first time experiences, we had a wedding, engagement, raffle prize evening, Yoga, Sound Baths and 2 ( wet!) evenings with a beautiful string quartet playing , these I am sure will be repeated next year with more added.
We are now well under way with the harvest, dodging showers, but we try, as always ,to distill the flower heads within 3 hours of cutting to ensure our excellent quality essential oils, so hopefully the sun shines a little, for us, and to get the oils flowing in the plants.
As we now have the field close we start to plan and look ahead to our next open season in 2024!
Thank you again everyone for following us, visiting us, sending feedback, sending photos, buying products and generally making all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes worth while!
lots of love from Ian and Pippa and all the team at Warwickshire Lavender farm
