Three days of glorious sunshine and then the day of the annual Garden Party dawned. And it dawned with an east coast haar and a distinct chill in the air. But as the hour approached the sun broke through and the chilly temperature rose to a fairly chilly but not exactly freezing.
The crowds arrived, the sandwiches curled, and the chocolate cake was divine. Nobody played basketball, sadly. Now, that would have been a photo opportunity. The cups and saucers were plundered from the depths of the garage and have now been washed, dried and packed up again for next year.
