enjoyed a wonderful tea with fabulous food today in McMinnville.
The home of Colleen Wilcox is situated high on a hill overlooking a
beautiful valley and the mountains beyond. Her home is filled with
collections of Victorian prints, photos, ornate parasol handles, lots of
porcelain & china pieces, as well as knick-knacks and lots more.
The gardens outside were just as impressive all around.
began with fresh fruit with a honey/orange dressing. Next, we enjoyed
delicate scones with mixed fruit inside and topped with clotted cream and
champagne jam. Our next course included a variety of savories and
sandwiches, and we finished with a variety of desserts including lemon
cake, chocolate-peanut butter candies, cookies, and sorbet. Everyone
agreed that they'd never had a nicer tea anywhere before.
thanks to Joan Sequito for getting enough extra gals together so we
could fill our quota at the tea.
