Yesterday we drove up to Norfolk to a pug tea party in the grounds of Wood Hall, Hilgay. This was laid on by PDWRA - the charity for rescuing and rehoming pugs. They run regular Garden parties in the summer months.
We had no idea that there would be a fancy dress theme so our pug, Keith won no prizes. Below I am posting a few pictures of delicious pugs in sparkly outfits. There was even one kitted out as a vacuum cleaner.
The tea party, for which the price of joining in was a cake or plate of sandwiches was pure pug heaven - a paddling pool and sprinkler system were on tap under a shady hedge to keep any pug in danger of over-heating cool. There were loads of games - quickest to eat the sausage, pug most tolerant of being spunged down, musical pug with brass band back up and the inevitable fancy dress competition. We came away empty-handed but ate loads of pug cupcakes and laughed a lot.
Catharine Howard is delighted to hear from all prospective gardeners and garden owners
