Cirencester Farmers' Market

Cirencester Farmers' Market

Seasonal fruit and vegetables, locally sourced organic meats, free range polutry, choice cheeses and dairy and of course the odd cupcake stall are all to be found at Cirencester Farmers' Market. What better way to start off a week on holiday than to visit the local market and buy your produce direct from passionate growers and producers. Not only will they sell you wonderful ingredients, they are always on hand to give you great recipe ideas and cooking instructions….as well as the stories behind their produce.

This popular Farmers' Market can be found on the second and fourth Saturday of each month, from 8:30 to 1pm in Cirencester. Cirencester is a 10 minute drive from the Lower Mill Estate where Daisy Chain is.

Sunday Sunrise

A sunrise from the archives this morning. Last Sunday was so misty that the swans took the chance for a lie in. Occasionally they would lift their heads to have a look around and make sure they wern't missing out on anything then they would tuck them down again. On the morning this was taken the ducks were wide awake to enjoy the colours!

I'm posting two sunrises this morning – one with movement and one still. It will be interesting to see which is the most popular. Both sunrises were taken last weekend at Daisy Chain. Enjoy your Sunday!

This is another autoawesomed photo from last Sunday. It shows the movement much more obviously because of the reeds swaying. Daisy Chain is an 'upside down' house with some of the bedrooms downstairs so this was taken from the decking outside the master ensuite bedroom. Enjoy your Sunday!

Meet Santa at Batsford Arboretum

Meet Santa at Batsford Arboretum

Pop over to Batsford Arboretum this weekend to meet the man himself in his magical grotto. He'll be there between 2pm and 6pm on Saturday and 2pm and 5pm on Sunday. A visit to see him costs £5 and includes a gift from Santa. It's also a good opportunity to do a bit of last minute Christmas shopping in the Garden Centre and Gift Shop and to get some fresh air by walking around the Arboretum.

For more details visit http://www.batsarb.co.uk

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We spent this weekend at Daisy Chain preparing for our Christmas guests. The tree is up, the lights are strung and this little bird popped over to help us prepare for the festivities. He is now waiting to welcome our guests!
