Belles and Bluebells

This week we were invited to a garden party by our dear friends Mr. and Mrs "H" to pick bluebells for spring.   We had no idea that when we went through their gate a fairyland was waiting on the other side.  The girls were joined by friends and armed with scissors to pick to their hearts content in this magical back yard, filled with lilac, tulips, stepping stones, flowering trees, a little bench under the lilacs and of course bluebells.   To refresh the ladies after all their hard work, a tray containing little glasses of pink lemonade, another of cookies;  pink iced sugar, lacy oatmeal, and pink sandwich.  And to top it all off and to the delight of all the little girls present, a pretty bowl filled with pink marshmallows.   It was a beautiful day.
