A pleasant Sunday afternoon tea

Last Sunday we ventured up into the hills for a pleasant afternoon tea hosted by Veggie Gnome and Flower Gnome of Mad Gnomes fame. Last time we visited, we were geographically embarrassed and had to phone for directions, there were no problems this time and we arrived safely with no route deviations.

We met up with some fellow bloggers and there were plenty of introductions and much talking about food and gardens. We also had a leisurely (though rain interrupted) tour around the Gnome's garden, nibbling and sniffing the leaves of various plants as we went, even the chickens and sheep got in on the act. (I forgot to take pictures)

As we left we were presented with a bunch of lovely proteas, the picture only shows half of my bunch (I haven't got a vase weighty enough to hold them all, without toppling over)

All in all it was a really nice Sunday afternoon meeting up with and talking to fellow bloggers and putting faces to blog names.


  1. Oh, how cruel !!!!!!! To post pictures of such beautiful food, just as I'm starting my food throw-down. Gosh, it looks good!
    *licking lips, salivating*
    Might go and get myself another dry Rye Cruskit!... and a glass of wine!

    Cheers - Joolz

  2. That looks beautiful - looks like you all had a great time !
