These were all taken on 1st August 2004, with my old Canon EOS10D.
For any Yorkshire folk out there, you will probably know that the 1st of August is Yorkshire Day, so I really should have been taking photos of white roses 😳 but this lavender was just asking to be photographed.
All the photos are from a small lavender farm just outside the village of Snowshill in the Cotswolds. This farm used to allow folk to wander free amongst the lavender bushes, to take photos, watch the distillery produce the oils, and breathe in the beautiful scent the plant produces. I’m afraid the days of wandering for free have gone, as they now charge an entry fee during the flowering season 😦
