Real red and green apples form this mosaic.
When they are not needed here any longer they will be
used as cow feed at a local farm.
are so elegant...
While no one will actually be drinking tea here
it is quite inspirational.
What lovely vignettes.
And from the tea room we stepped out into the open conservatory
to find some brilliant uses of color.
Very fun and pretty use of Spanish Moss and
Daddy and Daughter....
And then we were off to the cafe for lunch.
I love their chili.
Chelsea enjoyed a salad while Warren chose a sandwich.
After that we left the gardens and headed to
Kennett Square proper.
We were on a mission to restock our tea supply
at Mrs. Robinson's tea shoppe.
There is no rational reason why this shoppe should
make us so happy.
And yet, it does.
We each chose a flavor
to purchase and left to go around the corner
to a new coffee shop/cafe.
I did make a tactical error in ordering a
cappuccino since this is the real deal and
therefore is not sweet in the least
and is very strong.
However, it was so pretty that I enjoyed taking
photos of it and even had a couple of sips
before adding sugar and then surrendering it to Warren.
We will visit this cafe again!
We really enjoyed it and the owner who you can see
hard at work in this picture.
Check out the menu board.
Is this not the cutest way to let people
know what is available?
So...if you are in Kennett Square and you want to
get a genuine cup of coffee, Mrs. Robinson's Tea or
probably hot chocolate....I forgot to look....
I recommend Philter.
Finally it was time to head home.....
I found it classic that we followed a
mushroom truck down the highway.
We were in the mushroom capital of the world
