Hidden England: The Confetti Flower Fields on Wyke Manor Estate Farm in Worcestershire are open from 29th June till 9th July 2017. Acres of Delphiniums and cornflowers are in bloom, & are an enchanting sight to behold. And the sleepy village of Wick is straight out of a postcard, waiting to be discovered.
Wherever there are flowers & nature, you shall find me there. It doesn’t matter how far it is, distance won’t stop me! And so I found myself on the edge of the Cotswolds this week, exploring Pershore, & the beautiful sleepy village of Wick.
Here, on the edge of the village are the beautiful confetti flower fields. Delphiniums in multiple colours, gently swaying and fluttering in the wind.
An enchanting sight. Shades of azure blue, soft pink, raspberry, ivory, & purple.
Soft petals, like velvet, dreamily laid out like a magical rug.
There were also blue & white cornflowers, with wild poppies, & butterflies. A gorgeous sight to take in.
I didn’t want to leave!
These flower fields are grown by the Real Flower Petal Confetti Company, which is part of the Wyck Manor Estate Farm.
As part of celebrating their 20th anniversary, a Union Jack flower flag has been grown. You can admire it from a viewing platform, sadly I didn’t get to see it as the viewing platform wasn’t up yet.
The surrounding countryside is also beautiful, with a lot to explore. As well as the charming village of Wick, with it’s delightful thatched cottages and beautiful gardens.
It felt amazing to be in such a beautiful place, & enjoy the flowers in full bloom. I went for a preview, & had the field almost to myself. Apart from a drone, & some crew from the press association.
It’s only open 10 days a year to the public starting from June 29th till July 9th. Ten days only, because this is when the Delphiniums are in full bloom.
Once the 10 days are up, they are then harvested for the petals to be used for wedding confetti.
Some of the Real Flower Petal Confetti Company’s customers have included HRH Prince Charles & Camilla, and Hollywood stars.
If you are getting married, you might want to get your confetti from here. The colours are gorgeous!
Let me know if you go to visit the Confetti fields, I’d love to know how you found it!
Special thanks to Nancy for showing me around!
Ps. I have more pics coming from the flower field, as well Wick & Pershore. I took so many!! Stay posted 🙂
