Bishop’s Close Garden Tour

We had a lovely event on Sunday with a group of most amiable ladies and gentlemen. Our day started with a tour through the beautiful Bishop’s Close gardens and ended our afternoon at the local pub for food and libations. It was a lovely way to spend a summer’s afternoon. Here are the pictures :-) And I have listed them with our Le Bon persona names.!

I always love seeing your photos - and everyone dresses up so beautifully! It's like stepping back in time. I sure would love to find a good group of friends close by to do outings like this! Very lovely photos! Have a beautiful week ahead!

I love these photos; how serene and beautiful you ladies look and the gentleman are very dashing and handsome. It must be so fun to have like minded friends to do things like this with! I can't imagine spending a better afternoon. I wish our group did this - the styles are actually *pretty* whereas the 1860's definitely has to grow on you. :P

Lovely photos! The shot of the four "ladies in white" is inspiring me to make my own chemise a la reine...eep, not another project!
