What a wonderful Picnic!
We had a clear day, a bit chilly, though not unexpected in July in the City and everyone was able to dress in their woolen best in comfort. It was a large group, of the most charming people, and best of all, from the tenderest youth to the most young at heart, everyone enjoyed good company and high spirits for the day.
Where else, but among our Steamy friends can you hold baked goods and butterflies on the same afternoon. We stuffed ourselves on sandwiches and biscuits, grapes and brownies, quiche and bread and cheese, and washed it all down with blood orange juice or hot tea! Everywhere the conversations were lively ranging from beading projects to watch fobs, from our favorite plot twists in the best books and games we know to the most savory gossip we've seen in Faire politics or Washington DC. Ensembles were admired. Cards were exchanged. Carnivorous pants were inspected and lonely botanists (ask about the coconut) were pitied. For every person we lost to a previous engagement, two more would find us until we swarmed the cozy Conservatory, giving the amused tourists something to talk about.
And of course, there were Pictures! The full link is here:
