A Garden Tea Party













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!
