Grand Days Out

Well, it's just been the last weekend in August, and you know what that means. Bank Holiday Weekend, and some superb days out for all.

On Saturday the 28th, Sis, Mum and I hot-footed it over to Heronden House in Tenterden for a walk round the spectacular gardens, followed by a lovely cream tea.

Liberally apply jam and cream.

Lovely soft scone.

Then yesterday, Bank Holiday Monday, there were three villages with Flower Festivals happening. The first was at Appledore Village Church, where one could purchase such delights as these lovely cupcakes.

We also bought some grape jam (foreground) and a plum crumble ready to be popped in the oven.

The other flower festivals were at Smallhythe (no food purchased there, although there was some available) and finally on to Rolvenden, where we bought the rolls pictured and the other jar of jam. The jam is a Hot Rhubarb & Ginger, and is actually more like a chutney. In fact, when we ate our lunch there, a ploughman's, that is what was served with it in place of a pickle. Fantastic stuff. The rolls are of the same kind that came with the ploughman's lunch also. 

Long live home made baked goods and preserves!
