We made our plans and prayed for no rain. We got out on time at 10am, and after a lovely drive found the Mayfield Lavender Fields in Banstead. It was the quickest photo shoot ever, we took the girls out of their slings and put them on the ground, my friend steadied them as I realised Dessi would not be sitting for anyone so I had her lie on her front instead, and then shot.
All photos taken within 5 minutes before going for a Lavender flavoured scone (fun to do once, won't do again) and a drink for us whilst the girls had a roll around on the ground. Our desire to let them exercise and hopefully improve their moods outweighed the desire to keep them clean, back to the car where we set them in their seats and gave them lunch before heading home.
Just as we exited the gate, it rained. And that is what you call good timing!
