Turquoise Photos

I'm looking for more photos to illustrate the Turquoise Suite.  The Red Bedroom is more dramatic, but the Turquoise Suite is a lovely calm relaxing space, so I want the photos to give the impression of space, serenity, style and comfort.

First Cut of Spring

Just cut the lawn - first cut of this Spring.  Instantly the garden looks a bit spruced up, and somehow greener.

Tulips are getting going (not quite soon enough for last weekend's guests), the magnolias are flourishing and the aubretia is looking very fine (must plant more).  Lovely weather for sitting out in the garden and enjoying a cup of coffee.

Breakfast for Five

Five people for breakfast today!  Quite a logistical exercise, which I did OK, but could definitely do better.  I think (yet another) checklist is on the way.

Another first - I had to turn away a request for B&B with "I'm sorry, but I'm fully booked".  Shame, because they were a nice couple who had stayed before.  At least I didn't frighten them off last time.

I thought I might put a photo of the fully-laid table onto the web site, and will probably include one of the following photos - one has a better view of the herb garden (and shows off the flowering quince) the other is a bit lighter, shows the rug, and gives a glimpse of the rest of the garden.

I will also include a photo of the other side of the room, which is much lighter, so you can see things a bit more clearly.  You can't really see the things on the shelves, but, then again, does that matter?

And finally, one of the sideboard, with lots of healthy (and delicious) things on top.  At least it looks as though it's been polished - nice little reflections showing.
