How does it happen that a bunch of bloggers and their partners who've never met before come together for lunch under the billowing bows of a magnificent plane tree?
The lovely Marie from 66 square feet makes it happen, the fabulous link between us, she's brought us together in her parents garden (adjectives for her mom's garden escape me- I think you can tell from the pictures?)
We'd been drooling over the menu for days, you can drool here - again the pictures say it all.
Did I mention her charming dad kept the corks popping on a seemingly endless supply of bubbly.
Isn't life just grand.....strangers reaching tentatively across the internet, meeting, sharing, laughing- same time next year?

|Ohh, that red pepper mousse....|
|so very yummy....|

|Perhaps the simplicity of ' beautiful' says it all?|
