A LOVELY HUDSON VALLEY AFTERNOON, WE’RE SURE “Start the spring off right by attending the annual Daffodil Tea at the Wilderstein Historic Site (pictured) on Saturday, April 17 at 1 PM.” So begins the latest missive we received from the Wilderstein Historic Site (330 Morton Road, Rhinebeck). Well, who is this writer to disagree? This is a High Tea—and if you don’t know what a “high tea” is, well, one didn’t go to finishing school, did one? (The tea will feature excellent teas, finger sandwiches, cakes, cookies and sweets.) This actually sounds pretty cool. Wilderstein was owned and occupied by one of Franklin Roosevelt’s cousins, Daisy Suckley, and it is reported that “many Rhinebeck residents have fond memories of being invited to tea by Miss Suckley.” After the tea, there will be time to stroll the grounds and enjoy the daffodils—weather permitting. The per-person cost is $25. Early reservations are suggested, because seating is limited. For more info or to reserve your place come tea-time, call (845) 876-4818.
