When I had property settlement back in 2011 I planted two manzanilla olive trees to grace my front yard, provide shade from the hot western sun and provide organically grown olive fruit for my personal enjoyment. Little did I know at the time just how bountiful these two trees would be! This is my third harvest and what a joy it is to harvest, brine and eat my own produce.
Elise chose La Maison St Arnaud B&B for her wedding weekend with her bridesmaids, then her new husband Paul on their wedding night and the following night. Morning of the wedding there was a riot of a time getting ready with makeup artists, hair stylists, family and friends dropping in, and lots of food and wine. Catering was done onsite by La Maison and all went off beautifully!
Been awhile since I was serenaded but I liked it! Peter, just get that George Harrison 'All Things Must Pass' in your repertoire.
Ive said it before, we are truly blessed living in NE Victoria...spoilt too! With great pub bistros, restaurants and the wineries we have plenty of dining options. Today, and once again, I was totally satisfied with the offerings at Plough Inn, Tarrawingee. The new chef Eli is Nepalese and he turned out a great curry! We loved it...oh the love...so much love.....life sure is good!
With lots of love at La Maison St Arnaud, flowers are usually for all to enjoy!
