Enjoying Kent

I love Kent in the summer, it comes alive. Last weekend we drove around a few local villages, visited some tearooms and farm shops, caught a summer fete, bought local apple juice and strawberries and visited some artists studios.


(Perry Court Farm Shop and Tearoom, Wye. The bunting was made by me – and the cakes are all homemade too :))

The sun shone and the views were stunning. Everything is lush and there are poppies in the fields.


(Badgers Hill Farm, Chilham)

We had a nice lunch outside at Badgers Hill Farm with this chap, a few llamas and some chickens.

We visited an antique shop and another farm stall in Chilham, found this old watering can and a few plants.

South East Open Studios is in full swing and I got to visit Ashford Visual Artists in a barn near Woodchurch. I did buy a lovely tile from Jane Richardson too!

I also got to enjoy my garden and plant up my pots when I got back 🙂

Next weekend is the last chance to visit South East Open Studios, I know there are some gardens open for charity and a few more fairs and fetes, may the sun keep on shining, so much to see!
