What better way to have a relaxing couple of hours than to be under shade with a gentle breeze wafting nature’s scents by, the tweeting of birds, the humming of dragonflies, the song of frogs, the beauty of a lush garden all around, engaging social chats and the appreciation of the season’s charms.
