This year, too
Last year three of my friends from choir and I got together for a jasmine tea party. This year I made it back in time to attend again. Last Friday the jasmine was in full bloom as we gathered. Unfortunately, it was raining so we sat inside instead of outside under the jasmine (maybe that was good, I didn't get a headache from the strong fragrance!).
We had delicious food and lots of good conversation. Miki san made us spaghetti and naan pizza. Kan-chan and Anne brought different kinds of sushi. And, I brought cookies, surprise, surprise! It was a new recipe for me and turned out quite nicely. (Thanks, Aunt Karen for the new cookie book!:)
Here are our lovely desserts and tea. After this we added jasmine blossoms to our teacups but I didn't get a good picture of it.
You can sort of see the jasmine blooming out back. Wouldn't it be great to have this garden as your neighbor's, natural aroma therapy!?! (The flash spot is also full of jasmine blooms!)
