and a taste of my next post … little homes in the Springtime

My great friend and I spent the weekend jaunting around Dorset, exploring all around from our base at Swanage Bay.  After what seems like weeks of unbroken sunshine here in the south of England, the high pressure decided to desert us for the weekend, but the sea mists and occasional shower didn’t affect our trip one bit.  We visited some favourite west country towns – Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Bridport – before meandering along the coast with stops at pretty villages that took our fancy.  Much cake was consumed on these frequent breaks in our day!!!!  At Lulworth Cove, we enjoyed a simple but quite delicious early evening meal at the Lulworth Cove Inn – we both had small portions as we were still quite full of cake – and the little home-cooked steak and ale pies with veg were outstandingly good.  If you’re visiting the area, make sure you book a table – we just happened to be very lucky and were fitted in as we were quite early.

So many fabric treats came home with me – and another chair!  When my daughter phoned to make sure we were back I said “Guess what?”  and she said, straightaway “You’ve bought another chair!”  I’m obviously boringly predictable.

More photos of the prettiest little cottages in Sprintime, and a Scandinavian design rocking chair next time – and apple blossom in the garden!

What did you get up to at the weekend – what’s in bloom in your garden? Do join in and leave a comment – it’s so interesting to hear about your adventures.

    Well, we stayed at home this weekend. We had a much needed downpour. Now, all of nature around us looks fresh and clean….like it just took a shower. And, it did!!! The sun is out today and supposed to be for the rest of the week. Our weather changes very quickly, so who knows the weather forecast for this coming weekend.
    Thank you for sharing your adventures with us, your readers! Your countryside is beautiful……I love seeing it through a “Natives” eyes! And, I am looking forward to seeing the small homes!
    We are enjoying the blooming tulips, primrose plants and Forsythia bushes with all their little bright yellow flowers travelling up and down their slender branches!

    Everything’s so much shinier after this weekend. I’ll swear the leaves appeared on the trees overnight after they’d had a drink of rain!
