The sun is shining warm enough today, to invite old friends for tea on my backyard deck. We haven’t seen each other since the start of the pandemic, so we clasp hands in happiness and gratitude for this time together!
The trees are glorious in their color changing, and even as the leaves tumble to the ground, there are still summer flowers brave enough to keep blooming. It is truly a beautiful day in my neighborhood!
Today we are sharing a pot of Mary Ann’s Afternoon tea and eating Chocolate – cherry and pumpkin – pecan scones. Crispy apples grace our table with their deep red skins to add extra color and flavor as well.
My yard echos with laughter as we sip tea and share stories of our times apart. So much has happened in the world and I am thankful that friendships have remained strong. Such a joyful reunion was meant for a day such as this!
