A Week in Photos

snowdrops and crocus

Enjoying the snowdrops and crocuses under the apple trees. The primroses are just coming into flower in the garden and soon the verges in the fields will be filled with their pale yellow flowers.

making orange jelly

Making jelly with the juice of blood oranges and a good splash of Slamseys Marmalade Gin.

raspberry loaf cake

Trying out cake recipes to serve in The Barley Barn. And eating cakes. Our favourite so far is Raspberry Loaf Cake.

collecting eggs

Collecting eggs. Every morning there’s a new clutch of different coloured eggs in the nest box, laid by the hens that wander around the farmyard. The yolks are a gorgeous deep yellow colour and the eggs taste wonderful.

doodle books

Making little books from jelly prints. I use mine for writing shopping lists.
