It's half past four, the offerings are a week past their prime; but the tables are still crowded, guests swarming around the flowery delights in the high ninety degree heavy warmth, tantalized by the thick heady fragrance of sweet liquorice lingering on the soft breezy air with a promise of yummy nectar to sip into the evening hours. Stay too late and one may become dinner to another of the visitors that silently drifts through the hot night air on threads of silk looking for delectable delights fattened by sweet nectar from the Summer Sweet Diner.
