This Spring I was so honored to be the guest speaker at the annual garden tea hosted by Patty Blanton and her wonderful family. The tea benefits the Sacred Heart Cultural Center in Augusta, Georgia and is a most elegant affair. It was the most perfect afternoon with Scots Irish fiddling, delicious food, Sipping Thompson’s Irish tea and story telling. Just as mentioned in my cookbook the Shamrock and Peach “one of the many particularities and joys of living in the South is found in the discovery that many of the old traditions of a more refined, bygone age have survived the modern era”. I was truly blessed beyond measure to be part of this momentous occasion tea in the garden and will treasure in my heart for years to come!
So have tea y’all, don those heals, find your most fabulous hat and wear those pearls (and in the garden if at all possible)!
