Each year I take my little girl to Banstead to run through the lavender field. This year, instead of following a delighted small child, not much higher than the bushes, with chubby limbs and grabbing hands, I was behind a striding, tall, lean nearly-seven year old. I confess I felt a bit sad but also very proud of our gorgeous, funny, thoughtful daughter. Teddy still came with us and had her paws rubbed in the flowers to make her smell (very much!) sweeter. Will she join us next time though....?
Another striking difference this year was the number of signs, they had popped up everywhere.
Tractor rides are another new feature (along with refundable parking charges). The photos I take each year, at least the ones without my daughter in them, tend to look rather the same (!) so at least this year's batch have been slightly invigorated with some higher up shots from the back of the tractor!
