Last week I attended a 'Shady Ladies' garden presentation followed by a high tea at Pathways to Perennials.
They like purple too as you can see by their logo with the work boot planted with flowers and they all wear purple tee shirts. The property has many display gardens, a garden centre to buy plants and a giftware shop along with indoor and outdoor furnishings.
Rain was threatening the day I was there with friends but lunch was over before the skies opened up.
One of the tomato plants had a robin's nest in it.
Visitors can eat outside on the patio as well which is where the tea was held. Look at this fabulous purple cafe set, it would look right at home in my garden.
I'll share what I gleaned from the 'shady ladies' presentation and what I bought for my woodland garden next week.
If you'd like to see photos of the high tea, join me Tuesday when I post 'tea with friends' and join other ladies for a gathering over tea. (the new chef was the Sous Chef at Sooke Harbor, Vancouver Island back in the late 80's)
