July - Lavender Farm, England. We saw a lot of gardens in England, including 2 of the big 3 (Hestercombe and Hidcote, Sissinghurst being the 3rd which we've seen before). But the highlight of the trip was discovering the incredible lavender fields on this farm in the Cotswolds - 100 acres of purple! It was at the peak of blooming, ready for harvest, and it was spectacular!
So in spite of two months off for recovery, I think we had a great year of adventures. Tomorrow I'll get back to some regular posts. It snowed more overnight, so we now have nearly a foot of light white powder - feels like real winter!
