My daughter and I spend a delightful afternoon recently with two very dear friends, Suzanne and Michael. Suzanne had cut some lavender stems, from her garden earlier in the morning, so that we could make some gorgeous Lavender Wands, with her kind and clear instructions.
Here are our Lavender Wands which were so
much fun but simple to make and
We were then treated to a delicious
and beautifully presented summer's
afternoon tea - Suzanne's special recipe of
Raspberry Tiramisu, was served with a
lovely chilled apple and raspberry fruit juice
followed by fresh plums from her garden.
|I love this little poem Suzanne has |
displayed on her veranda
Translated it means :-
"If you want you garden to flourish -
first prepare it in your heart."
How beautiful is that?
The amount of love and care spent tending to their plants is certainly evident here,in these photos of their beautiful garden.
Sometimes we are lucky enough to share very special times with very dear friends - this was certainly one of those days and one which will stay with me always.
