Easter Serenity in your own Garden Annexe

by Mark Brown | Mar 15, 2015 | Blog, Residential

Sing a song of sixpence
A pocket full of rye
Many free from (meat, dairy, gluten) varieties
Baked in some pies

When the pies were opened
The littlies start to shout
Yuk I’m not eating that
While Gramps suggests a clout
The aunts were in the dining room
Bickering about the money
The kids were in the kitchen
Eating bread and honey
The host was in the garden
Hanging out yet another load of bedding
When down came a blackbird
Who said…

'Come with me to your Garden Escape, put your feet up for five minutes, and have a brew while you look out at the beauty of your garden in spring. Take some deep breaths and return to your houseful of Easter guests, revived and serene.'

Or failing that, at least enjoy having some extra space to put up the hoard of guests descending upon you this coming busy bank holiday weekend. Perhaps somewhere for the kids to hang out during the day, running riot fuelled by a surfeit of chocolate, while the adults amiably potter about the kitchen preparing meals (to suit all tastes and regimes) together, while they calmly discuss what to do about the elderly parents/ great Auntie Maud/ grumpy Gramps.
