For most, it was a first to be invited to the Manor, but there were strings attached.
The new Ladyship had wanted to meet them all, so invited the entire village, cheekily asking them to bring a shovel, rake, hoe or fork.
Food would be laid on by way of a BBQ at no cost to them whatsoever, but there was work to be done first. She didn’t lie when she said it was going to be a garden party in every sense of the word, and no-one would leave empty-handed.
For their labour, each received a basket of bulbs.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Ah! What a good idea to offer bulbs and refreshments for getting the garden in shape….maybe I should implement that in my own garden! 🙂 Thank you for adding your lovely story to our writing community 🙂

    As they should. I once planted bulbs and loved the idea that the following year they popped up again.
