The sun shone on the Garden Party

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.
