Firstly, how very kind of Pauline and Stuart to invite us to paint in their beautiful garden this summer. Obviously they booked the weather for us too when they set the date as we couldn’t have had a nicer evening to paint in.
From 5.30p.m. onwards on Wednesday 14th June 2017, people arrived from the Rayleigh Art Group to enjoy the evening of chat, painting and supping a lovely cuppa with home made cakes. We are very lucky that we have such a first class baker amongst us, so courtesy of Val we had the choice of Coffee and Walnut cake, Lemon Drizzle cake or Victoria Sponge cake. Thank you very much Val for catering for our needs, it was enjoyed by all.
What a beautiful garden Pauline has, there are flowers in abundance in every which way you turn, just too many to choose from but some of us took lots of photos too so we can work our way through them throughout the rest of the year. Stuart must have been working really hard to make the garden so spectacular, most of us came home and thought we should maybe spend tomorrow gardening!
Many thanks to both Pauline and Stuart for letting us share their evening, garden and hospitality.
