Or, if you would like to see some creative current table arrangements made by other garden bloggers, please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for “In a vase on Monday.”
The veranda seems to go around the second floor of an internal courtyard.
I believe this is The Old Inn, built in 1614 and still in operation as a hotel and restaurant. The mail coach, on its way to the port of Donaghadee and passage to England, changed horses at the Inn. Among the travelers who stopped here were Swift, Tennyson, Thackeray, Dickens, and Trollope.
I’m recovering from foot surgery at moment, so I haven’t been able to make my own arrangement for “In a vase on Monday,” hosted by Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. But I did want to share this wonderful photo in which the whole room is an arrangement. At first, I thought those were peacock feathers fanning out over the portrait of the Queen and on the right, but they are tall grasses. I would love to have lunch here.
