stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
We’ve just had a lovely few days with everyone all home together. The weather wasn’t as warm as we’d hoped but we still managed to sit outside in the sun for a while, have an Easter egg hunt, cook a Barbeque and enjoy a little drive out along the coast to Dungeness.
This part of Kent can be very bleak, that is part of its charm. It’s very flat and the wind just whips along it, not much grows there. We always like to stop at Prospect Cottage and see what is going on in the “garden” there.
Derek Jarman spent a lot of time finding plants that would survive here. The gorse was in full bloom and the carefully selected stones still perfectly placed.
The cottage has been well maintained since his death and the poem on the side hasn’t noticeably eroded since our last visit. His strategically placed found/salvaged sculptures in metal and wood are still standing.
It was pretty cold so we didn’t venture on to the lighthouse this time. We turned around and stopped in at The Pilot for some Fish and Chips and Romney Marsh lamb.
A meander along the coast past the colourful beach huts at Greatstone completed our trip out, followed by a few drinks in the local pub.
Good times 🙂
Hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter break.
