Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
A newer participant is Snoskred.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have photos of a garden I visited last weekend for a party I attended.
There aren't many photos, as most of the ones I took had people in them; I can't show those without getting permission and I don't know many of the people I saw there.
called "The Outhouse" it has two very nice toilets,
one on either side of this lovely little washbasin. What a great idea for parties!

They are South Australian manufactured and owned. We're a great state! :)
down in a small hollow is a beautiful old walnut tree,
behind it, a smaller, equally old, apple tree. It's double grafted and produces granny smiths and red delicious.
looking up the slope of the hollow you see a pretty seat in the sunshine.
the palest of pink hydrangeas were blooming,
and across the path, purple ones.

a baby tree fern.
another glimpse of summer sky.
the food was fabulous, beginning with salad platters and dips, followed by chicken shaslicks, sandwiches, little hot savoury somethings that I can't quite remember and mini burgers.
these tiny fruit tarts were fabulous! I knew they would be, I used to make slightly bigger versions for summer desserts and still have the recipe. These were a little different, with the pastry cases having a brush of chocolate around the inside. The single remaining sour cherry tart had a stronger flavour, very yummy.
mini custard eclairs, which I absolutely love, so I had two; the tattooed male in the background there is my son J. I can't comment on the cupcakes, I didn't try one.
I did however, eat a couple of these delicious little morsels. Red velvet cupcakes with yummy toppings.
All the food was mini sized so people didn't get too full from any one thing, thus enabling us to sample everything.
