Summer Sounds Concerts at the Botanical Gardens

Amy's sister Catherine is staying with us at the moment and so the five of us went along to watch local band the Cashews play as part of the Summer Sounds concert at the Botanical Gardens.

The concerts take place on the Eucalypt lawn at the Gardens. It's a lovely shady spot in the pretty gardens but the patchy weather we've had this year meant that we weren't bathed in the warmth of a summer evening which we have been in previous years. Nevertheless there were hoards of people and we were lucky to find a spot to lay our picnic rug fairly near the front.

The Cashews were preceded by Koko-loco who got everyone dancing frantically to zumba. I like the Cashews - a duet - with really nice Canberra based lyrics, and we enjoyed our lovely picnic too with one of Amy's home made quiches.

Scrummy picnic
