And a Good Time was had by All
Sunday is my "live-in gardener's" birthday
and the celebration began today.
Our daughter took us to tea and it was pure delight.
The birthday boy and our sweet daughter.
It was a Winter Tea at Deepwood Estate in Salem, Oregon
The table was decorated perfectly for winter.
The tea was their signature rose hip black tea.
The scone was Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon.
The savories were Stuffed Mushroom on Polenta with Balsamic Drizzle (my favorite),
Blood Orange and Fennel Salad, and Roast Beef and Arugula Tea Sandwich.
A peek as we toured the house through one of the gorgeous stained glass windows
in the solarium.
The sweets were Lemon Meringue Tart, Peanut Butter Pie Parfait,
and Chocolate Chip Blondie.
Walking through the grounds is always a treat.
This is the carriage house.
What a treat and an adventure on a dreary Winter day.
Birthday celebrations are always a perfect time for tea.
