Summertime! Iced tea and stargazing! Gardening and long walks!

I adore spending time in gardens, and this year I’ve had the good fortune to visit the beautiful Huntington Gardens in Pasadena. I have visited before, and enjoyed afternoon tea at their tea house. On this occasion I opted for tea at the Noodle House in the Chinese Garden. Simply delightful!

  1. Just finished intermezzo. My reaction when I finished the last page was “ohh, it’s finished!” Then rationality set in, and I could console myself with there IS another one coming…….just never quickly enough for this greedy soul, lol

  2. Enjoying these books so much, thanks!

  3. I love all of your books. They are so interesting and I can’t put them down once I start one. I also look forward to the relationship with Tony.

  4. Patricia, I absolutely love your books, I met you a year ago at the St James Tea Room, I was a vender, I have thourghly looked forward to every book you write, such a talent, I to want to see what Tony & Ellen do next

  5. Thank you for introducing me to such wonderful words. I delighted in learning ‘twilit’ and ‘brangle.’ And ‘Aspenization’ is a perfect description of what happened to Santa Fe. The time you spend selecting just the right words for each description shows on every page of your books and is much appreciated.

      Thank you, Marsha! I cannot claim “Aspenization” as my own invention; I heard it years ago, but I agree it is the perfect word. I’m glad you find words as interesting as I do!
