Happy Birthday

Posted by Picasa
Today is my Aunt Arlene's 90th birthday.
Tea has been prepared for her birthday
and set under an apple tree in the orchard, the orchard she and her husband once farmed.
Today we will serve a nice green tea along with apple bread, a recipe another aunt developed.
We will carry it out into the orchard in my grandpa's (my aunt's father) lunch pail.
There will be fresh pressed apple juice in grandpa's thermos and tea served in
a lovely Franciscanware teapot.
Won't you join us for this very special celebration.
What else can we bring to this very special party?
Happy Birthday to my Aunt Arlene!

What a wonderful setting! Tea in an orchard, especially one in spring where the trees are filled with blossoms, is a beautiful event. I hope your aunt has a perfect day!

What a terrific photograph! I think you should print it out and frame it. Or make greeting cards with it. It's a really good photograph. And Happy Birthday to your Aunt Arlene!
