Keeping residents' minds lively and active was very much the thing at Shady Pines. Mr Bun, the former baker, was encouraged to dabble with dough in the kitchen, while Mrs Green, who'd been a gardener, liked to weed the garden path. And then there was Miss Birch. She so enjoyed having young friends to visit. They'd often spend hours listening to her charming stories about the years she spent as a housemistress at Breeching Hall School for Young Ladies.
