Pleasant happenings involving posies have occurred in my small world these last few days. I decided to list just a few of them.
- My new "find"...a vintage, hand painted, Jersey Pottery squat vase...from Scotland. I love it! My husband bought some posies for me to try out an arrangement. I adore fresh flowers. I've included them in my food budget for years...as food for the soul!
- Another "find"...Martha's Bloomers, in Navasota. It is actually recognized as one of Southern Living's top 50 shops. HOW HAVE I MISSED IT ALL THESE YEARS? This place contains a myriad of gift shops, a huge home and garden area with meandering garden paths, antiques galore, and, drum roll please...one of the finest, delectable tea rooms I have ever experienced. I give it Cindy's 5***** rating! The food was delicious and the presentation marvelous, such as edible posies atop my chicken salad. Also memorable were the complimentary cups of delicate, orange spiced tea and either blueberry or raspberry,white chocolate scones. I noticed people walking out with boxes full of these scones...they are that good. I'm told their dessert menu is well worth the indulging!
- After enjoying our lunch in Navasota, our family delighted in some gorgeous bluebonnet backroading. My granddaughter...the innocent little posy picker...did not know she was breaking a Texas law. I jokingly said we photographed her firsts...first time in the bluebonnets, and first time to break the law!
POSIES + FAMILY = PRAISING. A nice equation, don't you think?
