Summer is for picnics


A gentle breeze was blowing

It was a perfect afternoon



 We promised our friends a picnic by the pond, under the old elm tree




We decided to surprise our friends




And moved the picnic table into our barn

The chickens wandered by, Stanley our gentleman cat, caught a mouse, which Charlie our big dog promptly stole and Lucy our Brittany sat in the shade watching birds and watching us.

The four of us sat and enjoyed the finest gazpacho, deviled eggs, a fantastic bean salad, chicken barbecued and infused with a wonderful smoky flavor, garlic bread and many bottles of bubbly, chilled to perfection. Every single item thoughtfully and expertly prepared by our friends Christine and Steven.

For dessert we had fresh blueberries topped with creme fraiche and sprinkled with Demerara sugar from the island of Mauritius.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday
