Lavender lovers were treated to sights of lush fields of a bumper lavender crop at the 2017 Lavandula festival.
A celebration of all things lavender, Lavandula farm owner Carol White said immense rain in the later part of 2016 had led to a bumper crop, significantly larger than the drought-affected 2015 crop.
Ms White said the warm weather meant crowds were eager to explore the grounds early in the morning.
“It’s a celebration of the lavender and when we harvest the flowers,” Ms White said.
“(Lavender) is a crop that we wait for all year.
“It’s a bumper crop this year. Last year was really down and we are really looking forward to it – it’s great to have a big crop.”
Festival growers were treated to music, lavender scones, l;lavender ice cream and even some lavender infused champagne.
“I think it’s the lavender and love the entertainment and the food and the dancing and it’s such a picturesque site and it’s beautiful to see all the lavender.”
