Sunny days

South Cotswolds today and here’s a picture of Lacock Abbey with plenty of blue sky to illustrate my point. We’ve had constant sunshine for about 10 days and the temperatures are reaching 30 degrees Celsius. It is glorious here and pretty much UK-wide. Happy days!

Snowshill Lavender Farm

We are often asked when the peak season for roses and lavender will be each year. Until nearer the time, its tricky to be accurate and all dependent upon our weather. This photo was taken on Friday (12th July) and you can see much of the lavender in flower and its well worth visiting now. We are 2 weeks away from the peak time for the flowers and from then there will be another 5 weeks before the harvest. Snowshill Lavender Farm is a great place to visit this time of year. You can wander around the lavender fields, enjoy the fabulous views and visit the gift shop and tea room.
