I am looking into possibilities here...
I could visit lavender fields closer to home than Grasse - there was one not an hour from home - the most northerly in UK at Millhouse (no longer there I fear. It was a bit of a long shot!) There are some lovely ones in Yorkshire, Suffolk or Norfolk.
But I am greedy for the whole experience - the sunshine, the warmth. the acres of colour. Jasmine and orange blossom. Roses. The whole perfumerie thing.
I know Grasse will have changed since I was there as a pupil on a school trip when the whole ambience made such a deep and lasting impression on me.
It will surely be busier, if not crowded.
Have any of you been to visit lavender fields?
Do you have any tips?
I am loving reading about your wish lists...
