Skywatch Friday.

Skywatch Friday is a weekly meme with photo's from skywatchers from all over the world.

This week I have photo's of a beautiful English sky above stunning lavender fields.
 I couldn't believe what I saw. So beautiful. Several different colors in rows. Never seen anything like it. And that gorgeous smell!
 In person it is even more breathtaking. The Snowshill lavender farm is in the Cotswolds in a little village called Broadway.

Happy skywatch Friday. For more skies from all over the world go here:http://skyley.blogspot.com/





Don't forget my give-away.

Hello Riet, I have been trying to find your link to come over and comment. Your comment to me did not have a link. Today I am adding you to my favorite blogs list. Smile. I looked on Pink Saturday but no luck. I probable just missed you.

You said you had been traveling and took many photos of wonderful things. Did you take these awesome photos on your trip? I love the beautiful sky and the lavender fields.

I'll be back to see your travel photos. Have a wonderful day.
Warm hugs, Jeanne

The lavender is so gorgeous especially in such large waves across the fields. The aroma must have been heavenly.

We live in the Cotswolds:
Where are these lilac fields?
Actually, mine is all over because of a heavy downpour we had last week, so I assume these fields aren't so pristine any longer.

Wow - those lavender fields are stunning!

Jimmy said...

Amazing. Really, sunny days are good, but in my opinion they can't match a nice cloudy sky! What do you think?

afanja said...

Lang geleden dat ik zoveel lavendel bij elkaar heb gezien. Als ik mijn ogen sluit, kan ik die heerlijke geur bijna ruiken.
Maak er een mooi weekend van.

Arija said...

Your blog even has a matching background colour for the lavender. We used to grow it too and the perfume is so heady. Lovely photos of this 'aroma therapy' place.

Maggie said...

Hi Riet,
The lavender fields are stunning aren't they.
Broadway is a favourite place of ours to visit although it's been a while since we meandered down the high street.
Time for another trip I think!
Thanks for stopping by earlier and bon weekend.

Oh Reit, I live, breathe, drink and splash myself with Lavender all day, everyday. Lavender sugar, Lavender tea, Lavender soaps, Lavender colognes...you name it and Lavender is my one elegance that I cannot live without for over 12 years now. Your images are sweetness, total sweetness to my heart~
