Blackberry Farm in Walland Tennessee
We did a lot of relaxing...took a farmstead tour to hear about how they run the farm aspect, hiked and walked around the beautiful property, played tennis, fly fished (James), enjoyed some spa time, and ATE and ATE. BF is known for its food and I know why. Everything is gourmet! Breakfast was every fresh fruit you could imagine, fresh pastries that changed daily, eggs every way you could imagine (my favorite was poached on top of a tomato with bacon vinaigrette). Lunch was at least three courses, starting with a soup or salad and then whatever innovative sandwich caught your fancy (my favorite was roasted chicken with egg and pickled radishes and herb aioli)...followed by dessert, an assortment of fresh baked cookies or a trifle of chocolate and fruit. Dinner was an event...five courses...and afforded us not only nutritional nourishment but entertainment and good conversation. So much for maintaining a good baby weight gain!! It was totally worth it! I didn't take many pictures as I just enjoyed....
The garden shed...maybe if
we James got serious about gardening we could have something this cute
One of the BF truffle dogs (breed Italian Lagotto Romagnolo) They are pretty amazing...trained to hunt ripe truffles from under different trees. I really thought I needed one until James reminded me we are having another child soon.
This pretty much sums it up...AHHHH
in front of the barn where we had dinner each evening...
Such a great getaway...thanks Jim and Shelia for keeping Lane boy!
