Awaiting guests

I want to look like this when the guests arrive this evening:


I'll then show them to their rooms where a bottle of whiskey and pair of silk pajamas will be waiting on each of their pillows, Idina Sackville-West style.

Oh duckie, it looks as if it's going to be simply the most terribly delightful weekend ever---but I am sorry that you had to let the gardener go...

PS. My verification word for my previous comment was 'whalemart'. I kid you not....a thousand punchlines waiting to happen with that one...

Whiskey and silk pajamas!?! Sounds like a most civilized weekend chez vous! Love the old-school gardening equipment...even with this heat I'm sure you won't break a sweat.
