Welcome to the Mad Tea Party!


"You come to Wonderland often?"

Thanks for dropping in... may I suggest you sit and rest a bit. Here's an empty toadstool. ::::brushing off seat:::: Please - have a seat! If this is your first time down a bunny hole you may be a tad dizzy for a few minutes. It's to be expected, so don't be alarmed. Can I get you some tea? How many sugar bubblesfor you? While you sip that, I'll tell you what happened this morning.

When I first arrived in my garden I found it unusually quiet. Then I spotted a key on the table under the Cedar tree with a purple ribbon tied around it. I picked it up to ponder where the lock it opens could be, (That's odd, I've never heard the pansies giggle so much, I thought) when suddenly I dropped down a bunny hole. I'm getting used to falling down such holes and have learned to be prepared with a parasol in hand to counter the intended plummet (the queen gets a thrill out of it you know). After making my way through the Rosemary maze (it's harder than you think for someone that falls asleep f
rom the smell of the herb), I finally reached the tea party. So far I've met a the sneaky White Bunny, the Bluebird of Happiness and the Mad Waiter of Bangadish.

Later I'll be visiting my dear friends White Rabbit and Mad Hatter. If you see them, say I said, "HELLO!".





The internet reception fades in and out as much as Cheshire Cat down here, but I'll be adding more pix of the party when I can.

I'm off to visit some old friends and make some new ones :D

I'm back! Okay, so I met some more Wonderlanders. Let's see... the tea gets me a little forgetful... there was a caterpillar, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum... Oh - and Miss Cialito and Miss Holly showed up (remember them from last year?). Don't repeat this, but Miss Holly was obviously wearing Miss Kiki's dress and it was just a tad too small for her.


Oh, and then Miss Cialito and one of the white bunnies were hitting it off splendidly (they both speak fluent Malarkey), until she casually answered the white bunny's question about what exactly it is she does at the track. Well, the poor little bunny nearly hopped out of her chair at the thought of chasing white bunnies for a living.

Cheers,

Daydreamer, thank you for such a magical adventure. I really loved the laughing pansies, White Rabbit, butterfly tea sandwiches, the garden and my cup of tea with sugar bubbles was the best cup of tea I've ever tasted. I will be back to rejoin the festivities after visiting some of the other Mad Tea Parties in Wonderland.
