Sunday social

I’m still in Southland for the second day of our annual  girls’ trip.

Yesterday’s itinerary concentrated on food and flora – lunch at Le Potager, a cafe and gift shop near Wyndam; a wander round Maple Glen, the 25 acre garden, nursery, aviary, woodland and wetland created and lovingly tended by Bob and Muriel Davison and their son Rob; then back to Woodstock Loft at Dacre for a demonstration by floral designer Rachael Reed who showed us how to work magic with flowers, producing eight different but equally delightful creations whcih were both simple and stunning.

We finish our gathering this morning with an art workshop.

    Did the girls keep the noise to a more acceptable level last night HP 😉

    I2 – we’re balming Friday night’s problem on the lack of soft furnishing in the cafe, because last night we had the same number of people but we were in a home with carpet and curtains which help to absorb the noise.

    Either that, or we were all talked out 🙂
