    Wow! So botanical. Everything looks just beautiful. But where is the link for the Strawberry Bellini? I’ve had peach Bellinis, but strawberry sounds extra delicious.

    A flower filled greeting…just beautiful! Fun to revisit the earlier posts..

    My son and a friend have said they want to plan a Birthday Tea for my BD next month and my month flower is the rose and the stone is pearls…so maybe it will be a Roses & Pearls Tea…and there is a Sonia Rose, so hopefully they can find some of those here…

    Now, I realize that I have more than likely seen most of this since I stalk you, but I was like a little kid in a candy store just now scrolling through these. I love the rose folded napkin in the teacup the best of all. I wish I had done that for my recent luncheon!!! I love that.

  23. May 11, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    Mary, you said it with perfection! Each one of these posts is hyacinths for the soul! I may spend the afternoon savoring each one of these links. Thank you! Wishing you a delightful weekend……….Sarah
