The Queen's Birthday Party

The Queen's Birthday Party

Or as they say it here in France -  a fête d'anniversaire de la reine.

We celebrated the birthday of our Queen Elizabeth 11 on Sunday at our friends house has they have a bigger garden than us, it rained constantly until it was time for everyone to arrive and then the miracle happened, it stopped for most part of the time, although we had two gazebo's up that were keeping us dry.

there were 25 of us half and half English/French
The man on the left of this picture used to be the Maire of our friends village, the man with his arms round his daughter is our friendly mechanic, so as you can see all useful people to have as friends.

The lady here on the left is our host and whose beautiful garden we invaded

Lady on the right is the community nurse.

A proper English tea party
