People have been known to travel far and wide to experience the sights and smells of lavender fields.

One such location is Cotswold Lavender, where a number of lavender varieties grow in relative uniformity. But a little bit of wildness creeps in around the fields’ edges and, in sparse patches, within the fields themselves.

Sometimes the wildness comes in the form of daisies or poppies, but in most instances it’s the lithe, wavering grasses in fresh green, pale wheat, or rose-tinged hues, which stand in sharp contrast to the lavender’s pale to saturated purples.
