First we stopped off at the Walled Garden in the village of Mells. I LOVE cottage gardens and would so love to have a garden like this. Sadly, my garden seems to be a little overgrown with a few too many weeds at the moment!
We stayed for lunch – wood fired pizza from the Walled Garden Pizza Oven. Soooo delicious! (Make mental note to research building a wood fired pizza oven at home!)
On the way home we called in at the local Somerset Lavender Fields. We’ve driven past the sign for the Lavender Fields many times on route to other destinations and I had no idea what gorgeousness lay hidden a short distance away from the main road. With the heatwave that the UK is experiencing at the moment, it felt like we were in Provence! The views and the scent of the lavender was amazing:
There were even some lavender coloured sweet-peas!
Just enough time to enjoy the Lavender before a quick dash off on the school run. A fab day out!
Do you love cottage gardens and lavender too? Do you have a favourite flower?
