Happy Father's Day!

Sharing sweet remembrances of tea times spent with dear old dad.
.
Civil-a-Tea, Black Rose of Hanover, Barbara Ann's Victorian Tea Room
The Palm Court, New York City, August 2003
The Joy Garden, PA (with Angelica by his side!)
The Garden Angel, Reading, PA, 2003
Sugarplums & Tea, Lancaster, PA, August 2011
 
Dad enjoyed going to afternoon teas with his family, and he would always pick up the tab!  In his later years, when he wasn't able to get around as easily, I would bring him some scones and cream from the our special events, and his replay was always, "I like scones!"
 Happy Father's Day, Dad! 
Carolynn, Marjorie, Nancy, and Susanna love you and miss you.
Jessica, Jacob, Zachery, Angelica, and Cedar, too!
