Aren't tulips, pretty flowers. I am loving the little vase of colour I have in the kitchen and makes me smile, when I see them.
Our weather today is rainy and grey and it feels like winter is on its way, so I need something to brighten the day.
He is happiest who hath power to gather wisdom from a flower

Gordon Ramsay surprised the staff at Te Whau Vineyard recently with a request for a late lunch, for his party of five.
He flew in by helicopter to enjoy the food at one of our Award winning Restaurants. The view from the Restaurant is amazing.
"He was heard to say "Gosh you live in Paradise"
Ramsay was on a quick trip, to speak at a Fundraising event in Auckland. The Rising Foundation is a charity which works with young people at risk.
The party started with a medley of five starters including paddle crab salad on wasabi mousse, venison carpaccio, Te Matuku Bay oysters, all highly praised.
The main course was Aoraki salmon served with marinated fennel salad, charcoal prawns and fresh mixed vegetables.
Sticky toffee pudding was the top pick for dessert.
