I had the most delicious day yesterday. A morning in my project room and an afternoon taking myself on an Artist’s Date as suggested by Julia Cameron in her book ‘The Artist’s Way’.
Once off the main road there was a mile of single track road taking me up into the gorse covered hills above Swanage – I do live in a beautiful part of the world! And I love exploring bits of it I have never been to before.
The garden has been gardened for 50 years by Rachel, who took it over from her father who was, I suspect, as passionate about organic gardening and Permaculture as she is.
Home-made scones and loganberry jam with clotted cream
Plants for sale. I bought a pumpkin plant for Rufus (3) because he has been desperate to sow some seeds since last October when we took them out of the pumpkin lantern, we sowed them a few days ago and half an hour later he was disappointed that they had not come up – he kinda thought he’d be eating one for his tea!
A little metal teapot left in tree with moss in it, just the sort of spot a robin might choose.
Another view from the seat.
