From dainty sandwiches to herb filled delicacie's, the afternoon tea was divine.
My favorite treat were the herb scones with an extra large dollop of clotted cream.
These pictures were taken before the tea was served, to that I could respect the privacy of everyone who attended and volunteered their time.

This is a close-up of my table featuring my prints and note cards.   Met new people, made a few sales, received feed-back on my artwork and had an enjoyable day getting to know the other vendors!

And a final bonus to the day.....I won a "Lady Di" tea rose!  Now to find a location worthy of this princess.

A special thank you to the Herb Society and all the volunteer's of this event.
