weekend away to daylesford, part two:
good food, good company and a beautiful afternoon
Happy Friday! A good day to look at more of my weekend away in Daylesford, I think. After the drive down with Iolanthe and meeting up with Leeyong, the three of us met up with Sarah K and Sarah W for afternoon tea at Peppers, in Hepburn spring, as guests of Spa Country. We were treated to some beautiful sweets and champagne, and met our hosts, Chris and Wayne. They told us about the beautiful vintage teasets. I hear the gluten-free option tastes as good as it looks. This mermaid hair-like sweet was my favourite. After a good feed we were taken on a tour of the amazingly lush gardens. The bees were hard at work. We had a look at the lily pond, the little maze, and the incredible cellar, under the old house there. Apparently there used to be tunnels from the cellar to the neighbouring building... what a place for a party! It was a lovely way to round off our afternoon.
