The garden ramble
Great news to report! My garden ramble and plant sale was a success! The weather was a bit of a worry on Saturday morning however it held up after a very brief shower. It was raining cats and dogs on the south coast and I had many people calling to ask how the weather was in the north where I am located. I told them the good news that it was a perfect day clouds and a strong breeze but no rain. And they came! I was on the go from 9.00am until 3.00pm when there was a lull. I had an old friend who came by and I invited her to come and have a meal with me. Luckily I had cooked the day before so it was easy going. We had a late lunch and soon after we were finished more visitors arrived. Many were British visitors, expats, to the island and some locals in the mix. My preserves were a hit ! I was asked how often I did this kind of thing. I said that I will do another around November so take note folks! On Sunday it was sunny and not as busy as Saturday. I sold more preserves on Sunday than plants, but I didn't mind at all. The photographers were out in full force on Sunday busy snapping away at the water lilies. Whew what a weekend! I would like to say a special thank you, to all of you who came and my blogging friends who wished me well.
