DAY OUT AT FORD ABBEY

 

James and I decided to go out for the day yesterday the sun was shining and the sky was blue.  We went to Ford Abbey house and gardens.  The gardens were looking splendid so much colour and everything bursting into life.  The fountain was spectacular.  The house and it’s history is also worth a visit.  We are lucky that we live close enough to visit regularly and witness the changing seasons, we will definitely be back. Oh and the cake in the coffee shop was delicious.https://www.fordeabbey.co.uk/

RIVER COTTAGE SPRING FAIR

 

Spring has arrived, after what has seemed a very long winter.  The bluebells are blooming and the countryside is bursting with life.  We have had a morning of rain but the sun is now shining and the colours are so vivid, so many different greens.  The River Cottage Spring Fair is at the end of this month and is a must to visit https://www.rivercottage.net/

THE OLD DAIRY KITCHEN, TRILL FARM.

James and I have just arrived home from lunch at The Old Dairy Kitchen.  It was a fabulous food experience.  The flavours of the fresh and local ingredients were fantastic.  Thank you to all involved.

IT HAS BEEN A BUSY YEAR AT FINGLE

The end of September is almost here.  Where do the months go?  We have, once again, loved our year welcoming guests into our home.  New guests and those that return.  It is a delight to welcome guest back time and again.  We have those that have been with us now on many occasions and have become good friends or as some have said in our Visitors Book ‘part of the family’.  So, autumn is here with the leaves changing and the mornings and evenings having an autumnal chill about them but Uplyme and Lyme Regis is still a beautiful area to visit with lots to offer.

 

THE GIANT CLUB RESTAURANT, AXMINSTER

On Saturday we visited The Giant Club Restaurant, Axminster for the first time.  It will certainly not be the last, it was exceptional.  Food prepared with local ingredients, presented beautifully and the flavour exquisite.  Visit their website for sample menus www.thegiantclub.co.uk

SPRING IN ALL IT’S BEAUTY

Spring is in full swing, the trees are now lush and green and the spring flowers have been absolutely beautiful.  The bluebells have been vibrant in amongst the hedgerows around the lanes in Uplyme.  The Glen at the bottom of Fingle’s garden is now fully in leaf and we are surrounded by glorious green.  This really has to be my favourite time of the year, new life emerging everywhere.  The swifts, swallows and house martins have arrived back after their winter break!  The sky above our garden is full of them dipping and diving and feeding on insects. 

Molasses, nut and mixed seed flapjack

I haven’t made this flapjack for ages.  When I was cleaning the pantry yesterday this little jar of molasses from Portugal ‘shouted’ at me.  James and I had spent a very happy holiday there, with Rebecca and Tim, in November. Yummy flapjack and happy memories
