I simply had to show the day from My angle so to speak from Lulu’s beautiful cottage to her stunning hospitality.And of course the four legged family.12 legs in all.
It started with a lovely surprise in that unknown to me Margo and Ken (Tet) had also been invited.and they arrived a few minutes after Val and me arrived.


Introductions at the front of the cottage top right is the only glimpse of Lulu studio

More introductions


Margo and Ken join us
I lied lulu’s studio can be seen top centre of the picture


Friends and away


The pond area and the delightful little bridge


Rear view of the house, the first bottle already open


Getting in the swing of things


Val being shown the Blue Tit mosaic


Secret ingredients being added to the lunch


The picture says it all


Now where is he gone


A lunch time snooze


After lunch we took a stroll around the paddocks, Margo and ken were in there element as race horses to them are a passion


Lovely animals


Val nearly lost a ear


What are they looking for


Inside a stable block


Just a lovely Picture


Back outside and on to the kitchen garden


Lulu could easily make this her own


Inside some lovely Chrysanths

All to soon the day was over and we wended our way home,Jamie slept all the way having had a hard day.
Once again my thanks to lulu for making it a special day something to remember during the coming winter months,then we can do it all over again in spring at my house if they wish,and who knows maybe we can add a few more Goy ers to the list
