By now you must know I love having tea outdoors.
Last fall a good friend got married.
It was the second marriage for both and they had two homes to merge.
Many of their friends realized they didn't need wedding gifts;
so we gave them gifts of our time.
My gift was tea in the garden this summer.
It was a beautiful day spent with friends.
