A few weeks ago, the organization held their annual Spring Tea and Silent Auction, which was held at Green Pastures, an historical Victorian residence that was converted to a fine dining establishment many years ago. The residence was left mostly intact with individual dining rooms in various rooms that once were parlors, sitting rooms, bedrooms, etc. It is beautifully appointed and sits among a beautifully landscaped site that is very peaceful and serene. There are several peacocks roaming the property which lends a rather exotic feel to the property. It was a lovely setting for the Tea and Auction. The weather was perfect. The food was delicious, the speaker not too long-winded, and the auction items were unusual. In addition, there were some activities outside for the younger children. All in all, very well done!
Ratchlet has recently become a supporter of the organization, and as this year's theme was Mothers and Daughters, she invited me to join her along with M-T-G for "Tea for Two!" (Well actually, in our case it was "Tea for Three!") As you might expect, the attendees were dressed in lovely Spring dresses and more than a few of the women wore hats....very elegant and sophisticated!
In a break from my usual routine, I actually brought my camera along! Not only did I bring the camera, I even remembered to take a few photos! I'm still not much of a photographer, but I thought you might enjoy seeing me and my girls out for High Tea!
|Just FYI, |
Ratchlet was wearing heels, I was not!
We are much closer in height than it looks!
|M-t-G was not wearing heels and |
she is a bit taller than I....sigh!
How did that happen??
|A really beautiful bird....|
|...but when they open their mouths, |
the very loud squawk that comes out
really doesn't fit their elegant look at all!!
