…..has the most delightful members and I was recently privileged to speak to over thirty women of this lovely and receptive group. Afterwards my assistant Nikka and I were treated to the most delicious Asian luncheon prepared by ‘The Kitchen for Exploring Foods’.
President Sally Rives, shown to the right, introduced me in such a fine way I could almost become a legend in my own mind! On my left is Jeanne Anderson in whose beautiful home the meeting was set. You’ll be interested to know that Jeanne is also President of the ‘Friends of Robinson Gardens’ as they celebrate the Gardens centennial year.
I thought it would be interesting to the ladies to know how much they have in common with the Gentlemen Literati scholars of ancient China who prized their gardens and were so inspired by them.
On a personal note, I was certainly inspired by Jeanne’s home as I have never seen so many exquisite orchids in a private residence….each one more beautiful than the next and oh what treasures from her travels in the Orient.
Here I am again with Jeanne and you can glimpse her extraordinary garden seen behind us.
As I mentioned, lovely Sally Rives is the President of this charming group and she is as warm and kind as any one could possibly be. It’s a joy and honor to know her and you can probably tell that by the expression on my face!
