There have been several forecasts for sunny - or at least partly sunny - days with no precipitation. My guess is that they were merely wishful thinking on the part of the forecaster since they never actually happened!
We dug out the vintage Limoges for the occasion. The cookies are home-made sugar free cornmeal adorned with sugar free raspberry preserves, not too sweet and perfect with herbal tea.
|Little touches elevate a cup of tea and cookies into an experience.|
|White lilacs, a sprig of Coralberry crab-apple blossoms, and a spray of Pink Passion roses from the gardens below match the china perfectly.|
|This hand painted chocolate pot doubles as a wonderful tea pot. The pot is by Bawo and Dotter, Elite Works, circa 1900-1914. The other pieces are vintage Theodore Haviland. I much prefer the cafe au lait cups for their generous size for tea.|
