The musings of a chef-caterer
turned estate gardener,
digging, pruning and
cultivating my way through a year in the garden

The Gates are Closed
The Cobb MG Tour was today, and seemed to be a huge success. I didn't get to any of the other gardens today, but the unofficial "gate total" at my house was just under 800 people. There were an additional 25 or so neighbors who "stopped in," so let's just say it was a little busy around here for the past few hours! We just finished "mojito time" with some of the volunteers, and I'm able to kick back with Sadie the Dog on the sofa.
In this first photo, Phyllis (my friend and "house captain) enjoying the breakfast of champions before the crowds hit.
The patio table was set, though who had time to sit?
Carolyn's succulent pillow enhanced the purple chair perfectly!
Even Frank got into the act, working as the parking captain with a Barbie wave!

Then the crowds came......more photos to follow.....
