A little further down the patio, the umbrellas were already at work, shielding some early risers from the morning's glare.
Beyond the patio, down the pathway, the gardens were coming to life. Bits of bright colours dot the blankets of green.
Few passers by catch sight of these gems in the early morning's brilliance but in a little while, the sun-shaded coffee drinkers will wander by. The blooms are sure to please.
