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/

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.
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.
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
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
Poached pears, rhubarb and crystallised ginger for breakfast this morning, served with natural organic yogurt and flax seeds, almonds, walnuts and Brazil nuts. Served in the sun lounge with blue skies and sunshine a perfect spring morning.
