My Mom and I decided we wanted to have a tea party for all the "Swamp Road Ladies" - a term we used for the girls and their mothers that live/lived at the end of Swamp Road. (There are a lot of girls at the end of the road where I grew up) Our neighbor, Anita, let us have the tea party in her lovely back yard. She has the most beautiful gardens all around her house! Everyone brought a tea pot, their favorite tea, and dawned some flowers...some even wore a fancy hat ; ) We had dainty sandwiches, scones and lemon curd, shortbread, lemon bread and cream cheese, 6 different pots of tea, and chocolate dipped biscotti. I'd say it was a huge success for our first time and I'm looking forward to doing it next year!
Anyone may use my pictures and/or quote from my blog! If you want to give credit to me that's great : ) I started this blog just to record what I would normally write in my journal - so if that inspires you or makes you happy - that makes me happy too!
