What a beautiful weekend, the weather was so lovely it was like August down in Kent.
We took a drive through the country lanes, i love getting lost and just arriving at a place that you would never have seen otherwise....
I saw a sign for The secret garden, of course with a name like that you have to take a look.
Turning into the gravel driveway i wondered what we would find.
The secret garden was a restaurant, which was not open, on closer inspection around a pretty courtyard was a tiny doorway, well i had to see what was behind that door....a lovely wedding dress shop, i had a look at all the wonderful dresses and shoes tiaras and flowers, speaking to the owner i told her about my roses and the commissions i have had for wedding bouquets and venue decorating.
Well the outcome could be promising, i am going to make up samples to take along in a couple of weeks, as the owner is moving to a larger unit on the same site she said she may be interested in decorating her shop with my roses...i will do my best and see what comes.
Spent some time at Rye again, the Mermaid inn is so magical.... i will never tire of walking up the cobbled road to see the hotel and peer through the windows, maybe one day i will get to stay in the four poster room.
