Mr Fletche and I visited Cotswold Lavender Farm at the weekend, and we watched in amusement as visitors (and yes, they were mainly female) posed between the lavender bushes – lying down, sitting, standing, jumping – in carefully planned outfits to complement the light purple hues around them.

One woman carefully removed her white jacket before replacing it with a red cardigan. And there were all sorts of floppy hats in abundance.
