Apricot jam

by Jem Croucher


Went to the barn on a nice sunny day
Had scones with apricot jam
Purchased a book I’d not read before
Took pictures of cows made of can

Enjoyed a cappuccino, the coffee was strong
Chatted a while in the sun
Took the scenic route home along country roads
Spent an afternoon having fun

Good to spend time doing not much at all
Food for the soul and the mind
Forgetting the rigour of work for a while
As we relax, chill out and unwind

The Old Barn Nursery is a garden centre at Dial Post, Sussex, UK. It’s 17th century barn is now a restaurant and, in addition to plants of all kinds, there are lots of artisan shops and plenty of places to sit in the sun and just chill.
