Well, it seems the story that I had planned to post today is somewhere in the big black hole of Internet space. I have had a week of computer issues.......hmmmm......very frustrating. Anyway, after four hours on the telephone with many different companies I have upgraded my Internet speed and apparently we are meant to be receiving very, very fast Internet speed now. .....Not!!! and for the last hour my computer is behaving like an old snail. So I have decided to post one of my old & favourite afternoon tea parties that I had under the apple tree in my garden and since this morning is so cold here in Australia, it's a nice way to reminisce about summer.
Two summers ago in my garden......
I was inspired last week by a lovely lady in Bowral, the country town where I live to set up this afternoon tea setting under my old apple tree in my garden. (which is currently being enjoyed by these little birds who are feasting on the last of my apples). Late last week one of my husbands client's baked some amazing scones and gave them to Andrew to bring home.
The story goes: Andrew visited his client to pick up some furniture to be restored, apparently he eyed a cake in her house, (my poor husband doesn't get much cake at our home) and the very next minute she had wrapped up the cake, a container of beautiful freshly picked raspberries and a bowl of whipped cream and gave all to Andrew to bring home. This cake is featured here on the black cake stand, we ate all the raspberries.
is celebrating her 98th Tablescape Thursday party today and they are mostly warm summery settings which is very nice for all we Aussies who are freezing here today.
