The Confetti Fields
Social media is flooded with lavender field photographs at the moment. I love them! I have been playing my part too after our recent visit to Cotswold Lavender. However, amidst the purple of the lavender fields, I suddenly noticed some white, pink and blue delphiniums appearing in my Instagram feed. The photos were taken by Amy Tinson Photography (and I do urge you to check them out as they are gorgeous). They were taken at The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company’s flower fields in Wick, Worcestershire. The fields are only open for less than two weeks and I knew I HAD to visit them before they closed.
We were blessed with a beautifully sunny morning, which showed off the confetti flower fields to their full beauty. It only cost £2.50 to visit the fields, and children under 16 were free. It was a truly magnificent sight, with delphiniums stretching out in front of us. We took the longer walk around the fields, with the flowers arranged in blocks of colour – white, light and dark pinks and blues. At one end of the field, the flowers had been planted in the shape of the union flag, which could be seen from a raised viewing platform.
Unlike the lavender, the delphiniums stretched up taller than Emily. She loved the light pinks and co-operated with me to get a few photos of her next to the flowers.
The beautiful poses didn’t last for long. My youngest is very good at looking lovely, but she also has a very cheeky personality. Soon the sweet smiles disappeared, and I was faced with either a grumpy face that didn’t want to be photographed, or the funny face.
The flowers themselves were stunning. The masses of colour is spectacular but the individual flowers themselves were amazing up close.
After our walk, we decided we needed to replenish our energy at the pop up café. Emily spotted the most beautiful cupcakes decorated with pretty pink flowers made of icing. As pretty as they were, they were totally upstaged by the beauty of the surroundings. We sat down at a little table on the edge of the field. Emily was enchanted by the vase of delphiniums at the table. I was amused by how much she enjoyed this small bunch of cut flowers, when she was surrounded by so many others in the fields.
As we were leaving, I saw that they were selling bags of confetti and bunches of the delphiniums. I couldn’t resist and I bought Emily a bunch. She was thrilled as she pondered which posy to have and completely delighted with her first bunch of flowers. She carried them back to the car and had them on her lap for the entire journey home. She couldn’t wait for her daddy and sister to arrive home so that she could shown them off.
The flower fields were stunning, and I definitely want to return next year with both the girls.
