Zephyrine’s house, Lancaster
This morning was mostly spent chatting with Zephyrine; an incredibly interesting and fascinating lady. I also managed to get some admin done.
In the afternoon Zephyrine took me to visit some friends of hers – a coppicer who grows willow and makes wonderful baskets, and a homeopath who weaves wool on a proper loom. Lovely people and I got to visit their herd of Shetland sheep.
On the way back through Lancaster we drove up to the top of the hill and looked at Lancaster’s very own Taj Mahal, the Ashton Memorial, with its commanding views of the city.
Dinner this evening was roadkill pheasant (that I learned how to prepare) with vegetables from the allotment and farm garden and foraged blackberries. Very tasty indeed.
