I found myself in great company
on a terrace overlooking
a beautiful garden
on a sunny day in May.
Pondside blog author H and I taking tea at Abkhazi Gardens in Fairfield.
Royal Abkhazi Tea blend with scones, jam and Devon cream
aka The Cream Tea
(Weight Watchers allows me to budget for occassional treats)
A full tea with sandwiches and sweets is available for those with bigger appetites.
The garden is enchanting
and the rhodos and azaleas are in full bloom.
there are some shady areas...under a canopy of heritage trees
rhodos grow like trees here as they are very mature specimens
the summer house
originally constructed by The Prince and Princess Abkhazi
as a spot to take tea and lunch when they were designing their lovely gardens
Abkhazi Gardens are a reflection of a labour of love
by a couple who were very much in love
it is worth a visit.
If you find yourself in Victoria please do stop in and take a stroll
perhaps sip a cup of tea
listen to the birdsong
and bring a friend to share it with...
Have a Happy Weekend!
