Celebrating in the garden – 60th

On a fine day in late August we traveled down to Farnham, a beautiful Surrey market town, to share in celebrating my brother Graham’s 60th birthday. It was a sunny garden party and the garden was suitably dressed in its party decorations. The guests arrived throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

The garden was in full party gear which created a great celebratory atmosphere.

The art studio at the end of the garden was transformed into an ice cream parlour for the day and proved a popular attraction as the day got warmer. Children and adults alike indulged in the home made delights.

The party ended as night took over and guests left exhausted and full of contentment. In the morning the garden looked to be suffering from the “night after” feeling, but soon returned to its beautiful self. It seemed totally unaware that its owner and gardener was one year older than yesterday.

    Thanks Malc for sparking off the reliving of a great day. The hottest day of the year, not a cloud in the sky, in the middle of the wettest summer month in living memory. It was so good to see you all.

  4. I thought the timing was good! Remembering a hot day just as the cold creeps in.
