Wheelchair Fashion: Yorkshire Lavender
Hi everyone. How nice has the weather been? I actually have a touch of natural tan. How freaky is that? I've not had a natural tan since I was 10!
Anyway, yesterday we decided to make the most of the wonderful weather & headed out to Yorkshire Lavender which is this lovely lavender farm/garden near Castle Howard. I've been wanting to take pictures there for AGES, it couldn't be a more perfect background. The tea rooms there are also awesome, stay to the end for my review of that too ^^
I really didn't think this outfit had worked but I actually love how boho-y & country it looks ^^
I almost wish the light had been a little bit less strong & maybe cast shadows that were at least a little bit softer. Not that I'm complaining, nice weather is nice weather & it was a really lovely day. You can't believe how great the lavender scent was in the sunshine.
Anyway country girl boho ^^ So the point of this outfit was something to wear my hat with so my scalp didn't burn (cause that honestly does happen) & that had to be kind of country but I also think that to go with the lavender you either needed something that really contrasted with the lavender (so neons or maybe dark colours) or something that ties in & that's what this is - or at least I hope it is.

My mum got this lavender ice-cream with warm lavender shortbread (and the stunning lavender syrup you can see in the picture. I did have a little bit & it was super tasty & really delicately floral.
My brother has this ice-cream sundae with lavender ice-cream, honeycomb, berries, nuts & whipped cream....plus a wedge of shortbread. I didn't get a taste of it but I hear it was good. How it could it help being good with that combination of ingredients?
My foster brother who is a chocoholic got this chocolate fudge cake. When I was about 10 all I would order for desert was chocolate fudge cake so I can say with some authority that this chocolate fudge cake was a really good one with lovely fudge-y icing. A waste in a store with such unique deserts but if you have a chocoholic in tow this won't be a disappointment.
Saving the best till last ^^ I got this amazing lavender scone with a lavender blueberry compote & proper cream. I love scones & this scone was really good. I nearly cried when I was too full to finish it ^^
Yorkshire Lavender is a really lovely place to go. As a wheelchair user you are limited in the amount you can get around as it isn't paved & is very hilly but it is well worth going even if all you can manage is the tea room & the shop which has specialist herbs & flowers as well as lovely lavender goodies, jams, preserves, honey & even lavender honey beer.
