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.
