Lady Lohmann-Brown throws a Party! Part 2


The Agent and I had a fabulous time at Lady L-B’s party! The marquee was full of all our friends and we laughed and danced and quaffed and ate until the early hours.

There was a great band which kindly accepted requests to play all our favourite songs.

We jived….

Sir Plym whirled and twirled Lady Egality about on the dance floor:



We danced the Conga…

Brown Owl,The Graf and I joined a long line of villagers and danced the Conga round and round the marquee. Every now and then, in perfect time to the beat, Brown Owl jumped up high from joie de vivre – she was really in the mood to party!

They danced the Last Waltz…

Lady Sebright and Colonel Pyncheon were still on the floor for ‘Smoke Gets In Your Eyes’ which was the very last dance. They looked very happy…

It was an absolutely wonderful party to mark the beginning of summer!

Yours, dizzy from tripping the light fantastic,

Lady Lohmann-Brown throws a Party! Part 1

Helping set-up:

Thankfully, the rain has finally stopped and the sun is out -ish..(Hurrah!)…just in the nick of time because Lady Lohmann-Brown has decided to throw a party tomorrow night to celebrate her birthday. Everyone in Castle Coop has been invited. The Agent and I went round to her house yesterday to help at a ‘setting-up-pre-party’ . In a jiffy, the menfolk had put up Castle Coop’s marquee (available to hire out to any Castle Coopian for £50 +£50 deposit) in Lady L-B’s garden:

Green Blood!

Lady Lohmann-Brown is such an amazing gardener, she must have green blood. She is Castle Coop’s Gardening Guru. A few weeks ago, she grew so many plants in her greenhouse for the recent Village Hall Plant Sale that when she carried them into the hall, it was very hard to make her out from behind all the foliage:

Aren’t the foxgloves underneath the apple trees pretty!

Whenever I see this garden, I resolve to try harder with our one but I forget about all the knowledge and graft that goes into creating something like this.

At the bottom of her garden is a field in which there are 3 cows and a ewe whose twin lambs are 3 weeks old.

Flowers for inside the marquee!

The garage was a hive of industry as Lady L-B and her daughter had been arranging flowers for the tables all day! They look amazing already even though they’re not quite finished yet- she is very talented!

Here is a pedestal arrangement which apparently Lady L-B ‘just threw together..’ :

and here is a little arrangement for one of the table tops:
