Situated at the edge of a lake, The Frog Island is an absolute dream house. We consider anyone who doesn’t want to live in this place slightly demented, as it’s a picture-perfect location to die for. Mr and Mrs Brian Savage opened up their gates and their beautiful trimmed, manicured and landscaped garden to charity, with guests, friends and family all turning up for the event, so we took the opportunity to allocate this special Sunday for some afternoon family fun.
I couldn’t help browsing around for the miniature details around the garden, filled with flowers, fruits and knick-knacks – the clock on a grapevine and a bird’s house on a willow tree are particularly quirky. That lake is, above all, sublime. One can spend hours staring out into that gorgeous vista, which looks invitingly serene on a summer day like this. Kudos to Maya for also serving up those spectacular strawberries with cream – it’s a delicious combo. And that barbecue afterwards is the cherry on top.
