Mom and I had tea in this very delightful and sunny garden dinning room. As we walked around to enter the front door there was many beautiful plants and a long gracious lawn to adore.
We are getting closer to the front door and here we took a peek through the lattice into what was Mrs. Butchart's private garden.
Almost to the front door.
And here we are. The glass in the door was amazing.
Inside the Dinning Room.
The garden room where we took tea.
Everywhere we looked we saw blooming potted plants, they were lined up all around the window ledges.
We were served a lovely variety of sandwiches and little cakes along with a candied ginger scone, for a warm treat we were served a sausage roll and a roasted vegetable and cheese quiche. Mom and I loved the berry trifle with Chantilly cream. Now time for tea. Mom and I had fun wondering what story the tea leaves could tell us...
Mrs. Butchart would host lovely luncheons for the under privileged children. This picture was taken outside on the lawn area, behind it is what is now called the Dinning Room. The letter above is a thank you note that was so beautifully written. I just love the way the thank you letter was written in the year 1920. Click on the picture to enlarge.
