We discovered that the hotel is currently refurbishing its restaurant.  We were however, still welcomed to have tea out in its garden.

I’ve been a long-stay guest when in between homes.

It’s always so restful visiting.  The staff is incredibly accommodating towards Bruno.  The interiors sophisticated and well-wrought.

This afternoon, there was the unexpected pleasure of dining beneath an installation of flowers!

There was a gentle scent in the air, and for a moment in time, I felt a little like Alice, in Wonderland.

Birthday tea with the best of friends in Wonderland, offered an opportunity for thanksgiving, and reflection.  Happy Birthday, dearest Zen Zen!  May all your dreams come true!

You know what I’m thinking now?  I’m thinking, “It’s no use going back to yesterday because I was a different person then.”  (Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll)
