The week past, through my eyes...

Sunday, 19 June 2011
Littlest turned 11 so strawberry chocolate fudge cake was needed... 
And a birthday tea was most definitely needed after crossing the Moor for a birthday outing to Morwellham Quay... 
If you watched 'The Edwardian Farm' which was shown on the goggle box last year, then many of these images will ring bells! This is the lane up to the farm... 
A view from a gate showing ripening barley against a very threatening sky... 
Mr F is a 'pig man' and so felt obliged to stop and scratch this ones belly. She grunted appreciatively... 
I wanted this little cart for our tiniest Dartmoor pony... I can just see a picnic basket packed up ready to go on the front seat... 
The paint colours and textures were a feast for the eyes... 
This mummy hen was also on an outing with her 9 chicks... She sat 9!!! Clever little hen... 
The whole village is a museum. Theres the Ship Inn (white building) where we had a spot of lunch... 
Tom, an 18.2 English Shire took us for a ride in the cart... 
Goodness... swoon... Mr F looks dashing in this period style coat... 
There is a large costume collection for those who wish to play dressing up... 
That meant us... 
My skirt was hooped and very swishy... 
A view through to the courtyard of Bath Cottage where Ruth from the Edwardian Farm programme did all the outdoor bits... 
Roses and faded blue paint... 
Im smitten... I need faded blue paint and pink roses... 
I love doorways... how many feet have crossed this threshold I wonder? 
And finally Bath Cottage where the Edwardian Farm took place...

Goodness... what a week!

  6. Happy Birthday to your littlest! Wow, what a wonderful outing, I haven't seen 'The Edwardian Farm', I hope it travels across the oceans and finds its way down-under, it sounds marvelous!

  7. I was in Devon last week and picked up a leaflet for this place, but sadly we ran out of time. Now I wish we'd visited!
