A Mother's Day Brunch Under the Silver Maple


 The girls gave me and the grandmothers (except for the one out of town) a beautiful brunch under the silver maple.


 The weather was perfect--you couldn't even feel the air. Nothing to distract you from these cucumber slices topped with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and avocado.


Roger was well-behaved and got to hang out with us for a bit.


 Having dessert set out with the rest of the food felt super luxurious. You could have it anytime! This was a flourless almond cake with a lot of chocolate and gingerbread spices. Oh yes.


 Abundant flowers,


abundant tea and coffee,


and plenty of green grass.


 Sullivan had his eye on the coffee cake and had one triumphant moment when he flapped up to the food table. He was quickly shooed down to the coop, where he announced that that was what he wanted anyway, so there.
