What's happening in the garden? Pink flamingoes and a Hatter?
I hear sounds most outrageous! What could possibly be the matter?
The most wonderful Mad Tea Party is finally at hand,
and we are to be serenaded by a real live band!
Burt's joining in too, his musical skills are quite honed.
Which is only to be expected since he plays the trombone.
(What other instrument would a skeleton own?)
Kristin's playing the trumpet while Andy strums his guitar,
and with the Hatter on base, as a band, they'll go far.
What, no treats at the table? This is certainly a mistake.
Maybe playing a little louder is all it will take,
to produce a few sandwiches, some tea and a cake?
Then like magic it appeared, treats and three kinds of tea,
and the music making was taken over by the mosquitoes and the bees.
The Dormouse showed up because he really likes cheese.
Swiss, Cheddar or Gouda, he's easily pleased.
Some strawberry shortcake for a finishing treat?
Looks like cutting a slice could be quite a feat.
Having finished their tea, it was time to be away,
Burt decided to take charge of leading the parade.
The merry musicians are off, more places to explore.
Who knows what adventures they may have in store.
Maybe they will come back but for now it's time to hit the road.
So here's one last hurrah because this story has been told!
Happy Mad Tea Party!

My apologies for the lack of music. Due to technical difficulties I couldn't get it working in time for the party and then I was too dumb to realize I could just add it any time with a YouTube video! Duh!
I'm blaming the heat and humidity. Thanks for stopping in.
