Sunny's tip: The lavender ice cream (£2.80) is not recommended as it is very icy and full of lavender leaves which isn't very pleasant when eating it. The lavender lemonade (£2.50) is nice but can be a little sweet for some people.


Sunny 小貼士: 不推薦薰衣草雪糕(£2.80),因為它的口感像冰塊還有充滿了薰衣草葉,吃起來就像吃了一大口的草。 薰衣草檸檬水(£2.50)很好喝,但對某些人來說可能有點甜。

Attention!!


Be careful of stinging nettles which are grown next to the lavender bushes! They have a spiky shaped leaves with very tiny spikes on their leaves (you cannot see them). If you touch them it is really painful and feel like someone has just injected lots of pins into your skin. You will get a massive red patch with bumps being developed. As this site does not have any dock leaves (a leaf that can help and acts as an antidote), you can go to the gift shop and ask them for some lavender oil. The oil can help you to sooth and heals the pain and bumps.


注意!


小心長在薰衣草叢旁的蕁麻(Stinging Nettle)! 它有一個尖尖的葉,葉上有非常小的尖刺(你看不到它們)。 如果你觸摸它們,你將會有疼痛感,就像有人使用細細的針插入你的皮膚裏。你的皮膚就會起紅疹。因為附近沒有dock leaves (一種可以幫助和解毒的葉),你可以去薰衣草專門店裹向他們要一些薰衣草油。 薰衣草油可以幫助您舒緩和治愈疼痛和腫塊。
