Another cream tea!
I couldn't miss the opportunity for another cream tea this weekend! Some friends of mine opened their garden to raise funds to buy an 'Event Shelter' for our church's young people's groups to use when they go to summer festivals. (I didn't know what that was. I'm told it's a kind of gazebo where the group can gather to chat, pray and worship together.) Coming soon to New Wine - so look out for it, H! And if you want to know what New Wine is, then keep an eye on H's blog, Little Sealed Packages, in a couple of week's time.
Since it was a lovely day, it wasn't a great hardship to go along to support the cause. It's a beautiful garden, cleverly laid out to make the most of the very steeply sloping site. I've posted a photo of it before and it looks just as gorgeous in the summer as in the spring - full of colour and interest. I'm totally happy to sit in my friends' gardens, chat, enjoy tea and cakes - and listen (in this case) to some live music played by a couple of members of 'Hot Aire'. No hardship at all.
