St. Patrick's Day tea


On a chill spring day when I was under the weather with a cold and extended-winter doldrums, two friends and my daughter cheered me up immensely by bringing over a spontaneous tea for St. Patrick's day. One friend brought over exquisitely-baked scones: another brought a selection of jams and a homemade loaf of bread, and my daughter set the table with a tablecloth of green satin and white knitted cotton lace. I boiled the water, and brought out the Baileys for a fun grow up alternative to creamer. All in all, it was a wonderful celebration enjoyed by  adults and our plentitude of children alike.
