Weekend Guests

Guests for the weekend
so, there were flowers from the garden

and candles for the tables.

a tour of the garden

even though it was a bit chilly

cake, of course

with sweet white wine and vanilla custard

but today they have gone, and so has the sunshine

it has rained all day

and we are still waiting for the real summer to arrive



  1. You have a truly beautiful home Anna, I love your blue and white pieces. Lucky guests!

  2. The door way on your side bar looks so interesting. I wish you would tell me where it is? Thanks for sharing. Richard at My Old Historic House

  3. Hi Anna, such beautiful roses, and the Hydrangea in the garden is fantastic! The cake with the vanilla custard I would die for and your blue and white ginger jars are fabulous! So there, I want it all! Thankyou so much for your lovely comments, I do hope we get more days at the beach, we all love it so much, it has a very calming effect on us. You have a wonderful summer too, looks like you will be busy at the beach too! Love Linda x
