  1. I finally googled Maryhill and found it in Washington State! It looks lovely and some great exhibits indeed. You are in a lovely part of the world. I am reading a book of short stories by Jhumpa Lahiri, an Indian woman based in the US who sets some of her stories in Seattle. So she evokes Washington well I think. Never been so I rely on what books instil.
    thanks for opening up a new window on my world with this great museum/location.

  2. Again, as I said on Facebook - I love your photos of this special tea. And I would so love to have tea with you there sometime! Wouldn't that be fun? ~Adrienne~

  3. So glad you and Marilyn met for this very special tea.

  4. What a beautiful feast~assorted flavors and friends. Just lovely!

  5. That sounds like a perfect tea party spread.

    I like tea parties.... the planning, the preparations, the decorating, the visiting, the sipping and nibbling.

  6. Lovely day, lovely photos!
