We love a visit to Scampson Walled Garden  . The drive  across the Wolds, Hunmanby,Wold Newton and all the villages from there to West Lutton, then dropping down to Wintringham and Wolds Way Lavender Farm is a delight in itself. We usually combine the visit to Scampson with a visit to the Lavender farm for lunch, and a stroll around the wildlife path. This year we found that it costs £3.50 to go around the Lavender fields . It used to be free, and we have sent many friends there .  Most people buy some Lavender oil, and have a sandwich and a cup of tea so we are very disappointed that we can no longer use it as a springboard to our visit to the gardens of nearby Scampson, which as a Modern garden is one of the best in the county, but where the lunch costs a fortune, and the tea cups are very thick pottery, my bete noire .

Just a few members of the Compositae for you
