Monday was a holiday – Labour Day – so we took ourselves off for lunch with some friends.
It was a dull, overcast, windy day in Wellington when we set off, but when we arrived there some 1.5 hours later the sun was out and lunch was set outside.
As you can see my friend is a keen gardener and has turned this 3/4 acre garden into a virtual haven.
It was a lovely afternoon; great food, good company, loads of laughter, fantastic scenes and fine wine to quaff as the day wore on. What more could one ask for?
“After all, Eden was garden… the garden is a place to go for quiet contemplation, a source not only of food but also of spiritual renewal and intimate contact with life’s most basic processes. ”
Ed Smith “The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible”
Note – all photos taken with my trusty I-phone with the blessings of the gardener and her spouse.
