Apley Walled Garden lilies !

IMG_20140903_115834I must admit I didn’t notice these when I was last in the gardens just before the end of the summer holidays, but these are the first to be grown there for at least 60 years ! They can be sold in the Farm Shop, but more importantly attract bees & other insects to the gardens, which obviously helps pollination & Apley honey production !

Look at these red berries – it’s late Summer, early Autumn – a time of year I love. I always loved going back to school, especially the crisp mornings & warm sunny days of early September.

At home, the children are starting school again this week & at the Farm Shop, we’re busy gearing up for the Apley Taste Off on Saturday 27 Sept. We thou2014-09-03, AWG berries, late Summerght of calling it the Apley Harvest Food Festival or Apley Big Feast, but have settled for the Apley Taste Off, as there will be lots of local producers coming to offer free samples & tasters of their delicious food & drinks. Yum !
