tea party at elizabeth's

our lovely monday volunteers, Elizabeth and Joan, hosted an amazing tea party today at elizabeth's house - when we arrived, cold drinks were served in the garden and then it was time for tea.

scones and jam and cream, freshly picked strawberries and raspberries, homemade meringues and gorgeous cakes...perfect summer afternoon...

a big thankyou to our hosts.
