Summer Garden Party

Summer Garden Party




Ruth Rikowski describes beautifully (with pictures) the Summer Garden Party that we had at our home in Forest Gate on 22nd August 2009.

It was a lovely day, and the first party we have run for many, many years. I am sure there will be more!

A special thanks to those who brought food and wine, and to those who played musical instruments and sang, and Alexander Rikowski for running the barbeque!
