Summer’s Here

At last we've had a few decent days of summer weather with the temperatures into the twenties and no rain. The nights have been a little on the cool side and the mornings have had a bit of an autumnal feel to them.

We spent a few days away in Cumbria staying in Dufton a pretty little village close to Appleby. 
We made the short a short journey from Brow Farm, our comfortable Bed & Breakfast accommodation, to the National Trust property Acorn Bank to look around the gardens. The gardens were looking very pretty, probably helped by the wet weather this summer.
There’s also a large walled herb garden and orchard to visit and a pleasant walk through the trees, alongside Crowdundle Beck to visit the watermill which is currently undergoing restoration.
Back home it’s now time to get the rest of this year’s potatoes lifted and stored safely in the garage for use throughout the winter.

    A great part of the country to visit especially if the weather's good.
