We visited Somerset Lavender Farm on a wet Sunday afternoon. The humans thought there wouldn’t be many other humans there due to the weather.
It is free to go into the lavender field but the owners request donations, so we posted a few coins in the box.
We clambered up onto a dry stone wall for a photo.
Then we sat a while and admired the beautiful lavender field with a huge umbrella sheltering us from the rain.
When the rain stopped we were able to explore in the field.
We are both quite small bears; the lavender plants are much bigger than us.
I stopped to take in the lovely lavender perfume
At home there are a few lavender plants in our garden, Nye thought it would be nice to add a deep purple variety to our collection so we chose one to buy..
We went to the shop to pay for our new plant.
Inside the shop we found lots of lavender goodies. We bought a Somerset lavender diffuser for our humans, and a piece of lavender shortbread to try. Lavender isn’t a usual part of a bear’s diet but we rather enjoyed the flavour of it in the shortbread.
Before leaving for home we stopped for one last photograph.
A lovely afternoon despite the rain.
