I finally have something to share & I am just squeaking in with my July submission for Five. I had taken lots of photos in the garden on the 5th, but I felt I have shared so much, BUT finally I did something off the patio. I had an afternoon adventure, which became a rather spontaneous time for me. My friend & I did have plans for lunch, but locally as I had to be in to work & as always she had several other things to take care of in that time frame. She is one of those ladies that believes she can accomplish so many things within a shortage of time, but that is a whole other blog post. I believe the Universe has sent me her to help me with being spontaneous, because she is that & more! I was late to work ...
We ended up having lunch at a little inn in a small village east of where we live. Both of us have eaten at the inn before but not since the new owners took over. It once had very formal flower beds & was known for its afternoon tea. Now it has been re-invented as a international fine dining establishment with an overtone of Italian Renaissance, well that's what the menu says.
