the tea party

from left, Ann, Virginia and Dawn, some of my gardening buddies, taking time out to stroll the garden. These photos were taken by Juliette to whom I am very thankful.

my surprise guest was Nicole from a Caribbean Garden and her brother Rishi who were in town

The tea party was on Saturday. It was good to see old friends and meet new ones. Garden blogger Nicole from a Caribbean Garden, was in town on business and was able to be here. It was really nice to meet up with her again.
We also had in spirit, garden bloggers Andrea, Autumn Belle, Kanak, JC, Lotusleaf, Shailaja, Stephanie and Bangchik.

Special thanks
to Valerie (the fourth photo down searching her purse) who assisted me in the kitchen, slicing cake, frying the accras, (cod fish cakes) and flying fish fingers. Special thanks to my sister Sandra who helped preparing the fish and with the washing up. There was enough food to feed an army and everyone had some to take home. I am still enjoying the remaining iced tea this morning with the chicken salad on toast.


  1. Beautiful garden, nice food and friendly people... that a fun party! I wish I was there as well :-D Btw, hope you have finished your chicken salad he he... I wonder why after a party that's so much food left behind every time... ha ha...

  2. My dear Helen, I'm so glad the party was fun and went well. It is so nice to meet you guest and friends. Once again, I wish you a belated, "Selamat Hari Jadi" (Happy Birthday in our local Malay language)

  3. Helen...I know you had a lovely time. Belated b'day wishes! The mood is beautifully captured. Oh, to be in such surroundings.....! So sweet of you to mention me as well:)Great to see a known name--Nicole.
