In early Spring, the garden looked a picture, with a Waterlilly covered pond and little bridge accessing a large Gazebo, several large shade trees, ornamental garden statues, pockets of bulbs, succulents, grasses, lillies and, on the Eastern side, outside the Japanese inspired main bathroom, a gorgeous Japanese garden, largely built by Katheen's handyman Dad. Kathleen showed us around the house interior, where her decorating prowess and her clever Dad's carpentry skills were evident in every room.
Our group gathered on the shady veranda for morning tea. The fluffy sponge disappeared without trace! Lunch venue afterwards was the Royal Hotel.
