Hart’s Black Horse Brewery closed in 1923 and little but ruins remain today but.. there’s daffodils! Starting in 1895, the Hart family planted thousands of specially-imported daffodil bulbs. This afternoon we drove to Weatherstons near the rural town of Lawrence and spent an hour wandering around the property. Afterward we visited the wonderful corner dairy in Lawrence and enjoyed our first ice-creams since last summer. Nigel ordered a single scoop of moccachino in a cone–the lovely lady doled out three scoops, and I had a sizeable plastic cup filled with three scoops of berry sorbet. Delicious!
