A beautiful place to sit whilst deeply breathing in the soporific scent of Lavender, accompanied by the music of a thousand bees.

  1. There are 4 lavender bushes outside the little museum house where I work, and I smell their perfume when the breeze carries it in through the open windows. Today I was thinking of your photos of infinite fields of the stuff and remembering all the “English Lavender” scented soaps and things I’ve seen. Is there a story about how that particular herb got to be so marketable/popular/prolific/traditional/celebrated there?

    • Probably the Romans brought it over Scilla, they used it a lot for it’s smell and medicinal purposes I think…. I have a huge lavender plant just beside my front door which I have to brush past every day when I go in and out.. trouble is my sense of smell is not so good again 😦
