Thanks to Bikurgurl for setting us the challenge again this week.
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.
