Norfolk touring

A quick trip on Saturday to Northampton for a family gathering and then toured Norfolk on Sunday…. 

destination Norfolk Lavender farm…..

 I know it’s a bit early in the season but wanted to take advantage of being north of London and home – travelling east to the lavender farm and check it out for future trips and touring of the local area…

we weren’t disappointed… and definitely plan a trip back to the area and spend a few days seeing the sights…

Obviously…. bought a few lavender delights from the shop….

a good sized lavender wheat bag for my lower back when in crisis mode….

and 1/2 kilo of dried lavender flowers…. to be used in wardrobes, linen and woollen jumper drawers…

and of course a few extra bits and pieces….

lavender and honey soap, a handcream made with beeswax, honey and lavender oils, lavender oil,  lavender room spray and lavender bedroom sleep and relax spray…. oh, and of course local honey and some local produce from the farm shop…

muesli, salmon and asparagus quiche and a venison pie … all too good to ignore… and yes cake… a delicious date and walnut loaf….. all gone now….

trip home was via Sandringham…. where the Royal family gather for Christmas….

fantastic grounds and beautiful location….. although did not stop …. that’s another trip…. we were more determined to walk through Thetford Forest on the way home….
