Lovely relaxing lunch, good food, good company and great to wander around their kitchen garden.  Thanks Darren for suggesting this place and many thanks to Lissa and Elaine for arranging it."

And to Darren for the original idea!

Wonderful weather and a different way to celebrate St Valentine's Day which is as much a day for friends as for partners.

A top spot enhanced by the best weather, fine and not too warm.

A beautiful place with some interesting sculptures and decorations. Here are two which caught my eye. First a Whale then a Buddha:

and a closeup of whatever the whale and hand are made from:

And the Buddha in serene surrounds:

And the show-gardens … the first one is seen from the restaurant:

and seen closer - a few different types of edibles and some herbs. Just for show:

Our table waiting for us:

And being used:

The Brookfield Garden Centre:

For us, an upmarket one-off St Valentine's Day experience.

I thought last night that might be the one - the one GV I missed. That was the The Place 2 B at Delaneys Creek.

Lots of space I thought. If you thought that was small you're going to get a shock with the Beach Shak which is just a seaside cafe ;)

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
