Creamery Cafe – Mushroom & tarragon soup

2015-01-09, H jumping 112cm on Scout at Wyke, snapshot croppedHaving had a slow start to 2015 (eg. Francis picked up a horrid bug within 3 days of being back at school), I got masses done today, including 1 hr of real fun ! As the girls (Octavia & Sybilla) are staying in school this weekend, Venetia & I had a riding lesson, when I broke my own record jumping 112cm – as high as Francis is now tall. The friend I was riding with then jumped 130cm, ie. over Venetia, which makes me realise how much room I have to improve ! It was such a treat, as it’s so rare I get to do something for myself !

I then dashed to Apley Farm Shop where I had a late lunch of mushroom & tarragon soup, which I highly recommend. Sunday lunch in the Creamery Café is always a treat, especially on a cold January weekend. I had a great meeting with AgWa Media about our 2015 plans, which will include some mini recipe films. I then spent a couple of hours changing the pictures in the Creamery Café. As Christmas is over, I removed the children’s Christmas Art competition entries & replaced them with 26 great photos many of which were taken by Ian Edwards, our tractor driver & Dennis Price, who’s worked in Apley Estate Office since he was 17 ! They also include 7 black & white photos taken by Philip Coutanche, the last tenant at Linley Station House before the railway line was closed in 1963. They were previously hung in Apley Holiday Cottages, which we’ve just closed.

More news from Apley Walled Garden tomorrow.
