Would it not be nice to wake up to a song like this?
Individual Holidays Garden Group 2012. The group was accompanied by Suzanne Gaywood, Grenada’s designer for Chelsea. Anne Campbell, the owner of Smithy’s, showed the group and members of the Horticultural Society of Grenada and Trinidad around, afterwards they all relaxed and chatted during a Grenadian Breakfast.
Anne Campbell is a Chelsea arranger and her orchids were used at the Chelsea exhibition.
Fruit and juice from the garden:
Coconut water + jelly, sorrell and passion fruit juice, tea and coffee.
Banana, mango, golden apple, mandarins, pomme granit, watermelon, pawpaw, passion fruit, grapefruit, and orange.
And salt fish souse, scrambled eggs, black pudding, johnny bakes, toast, plum jam and cheese.
The flowers in this picture have been arranged by Tony, a family friend and member of the Trinidad Horticultural Society. The flowers are from the family farm ‘Balthazar Estate’, the arrangement was done as a tribute to Kim Henry, a Chelsea Team Member. Kim passed away just recently, far too young, she will be missed greatly!
