{Tea at Château Neercanne in the Carrière Poswick & Orangerie}

In MAASTRICHT, the capital of my Province of birth in THE NETHERLANDS, we had the XVth INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON THE SCIENCE AND CULTIVATION OF EDIBLE FUNGI. My husband had been lecturing many times for the INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR MUSHROOM SCIENCE. So for the Millennium year we decided to fly to The Netherlands for meeting with a lot of former colleagues and friends from around the world. Even though my husband had retired, he still liked to meet with them. BUT, not having to lecture himself, as all previous years, he too could join the Spouse Programme and thus we ended up together for Tea at Château Neercanne in Maastricht.
This Tea was given in the Carrière Poswick  & Orangerie.
My husband is seated right in front of the waiter...
As you can read below, the Carrière Poswick and Orangerie is hewn into huge Roman marl caves as you clearly can see in this photo.
Balcony of The Netherlands
Funny that they call Château Neercanne the Balcony of The Netherlands... (just click above link)
It even is the only terraced castle in the Benelux (Belgium - Netherlands - Luxemburg)
This was the occasion...
First we of course did have a nice walk around this special castle that also is an UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.
Here I am to the right (in jeans suit from Escada) with dear friend Judy O'Neil from Canada.
This sadly was the very last time I got to see her...
We did consulting work for her husband's mushroom plants in Canada.
Sande Chase (from the blog: A Gift Wrapped Life) from East Windsor, Ontario knew Judy personally. 
Judy worked from Sande's design studio years ago and they went together to High Point, North Carolina for the Furniture Show one year. Small world...
While they prepare for our Tea, we have a nice conversation with this International group.
This is a photo taken from the terrace looking at the Carrière Poswick & Orangerie where we enjoyed our tea and/or coffee.
Here I enjoy the splendid view over the Jekerdal valley.
You can have a look for yourself by watching this short video...

  9. Lieve Mariette,

    Zeker ken ik deze prachtige locatie in het mooie glooiende Limburgse landschap,
    niet dat ik er wekelijks mijn cabrio binnenrijdt om te dineren...
    ken het enkel van afstand wanneer wij er langsrijden en van naam als Neercanne in het nieuws komt wanneer de Europese leiders daar lunchen of dineren tijdens de Eurotop.

    Jij en je man zullen tijdens jullie werkzaamheden wereldwijd wel veel vaker op uitnodiging in zulke super de luxe en sfeervolle ambiance's verkeerd hebben.
    Als ik het nou eerlijk zeggen moet en de foto's bekijk vind ik het een ''beetje'' kaal en ongezellig uitzien om gasten al plaats te laten nemen aan tafel voordat er ingedekt is voor koffie/thee.

    Lieve groet,
    Ger

      Jij bent een erg goeie waarneemster! Ja, Pieter en ik verbaasden ons altijd dat zulke internationale congressen àltijd in top-locaties, en dus peperduur, gehouden worden! Je hebt gelijk met het nog moeten indekken en daarvoor verdienen ze zéker geen Michelin ster...
      Het was uiteindelijk toch wel lekker en ook goed. Mogelijk was het een communicatie probleempje qua exacte tijd.
      Liefs,

  12. Zuid Limburg is mooi, ik ben er vroeger met mijn ouders vaak op vakantie geweest. Deze locatie ken ik echter niet, is misschien een beetje te sjiek om zo langs te gaan. Het wordt vaak gebruikt voor congressen en ontvangsten heb ik begrepen.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Jazeker de natuur in Zuid Limburg is heel mooi. Er is ook zoveel oudheid te zien en Maastricht is de oudste stad van Nederland.
      De locatie is inderdaad een beetje buiten budget maar ons internationaal congres had er wèl geboekt...

      Thanks for your compliment! The scarf was matching with my silk blouse. Indeed, stylish enough for the location and casual enough for the day's cultural walk through the oldest city of The Netherlands.
      Yes, it is bittersweet for knowing this was our last time together...

      This was a very special place and time. Maybe the reason that I only post it now is after several years have mellowed the loss of dear friends. It does hurt and once the raw emotions have kind of mellowed we can again look back at the fond memories together. Glad I have this lovely photo of hers. She was a fighter that's a fact.

  20. What a lovely place to gather for tea surrounded by history and beauty.

    It makes more sense to me to put a description above the photo so readers know what they are about to see rather than them seeing a photo with a description after. A magazine layout is certainly different than scrolling through a blog. Sometimes when I go to blogs who do the opposite, it's very confusing and I have to keep scrolling back up again to figure out what I am seeing. My brain obviously works different than some.

    Have a fabulous Friday! Tammy

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      In the Old World we often can find such historic buildings like this Château from the 17th Century. It makes a difference and especially for Americans where history is still so young.
      Sure in the text above a photo one can already mention and explain what they are about to see. But the detailed info that goes with the photo always comes below. In your case it was all about similar photos about the moon and it was hard to guess which one was taken in Amsterdam...
      Hope your Friday has been fabulous so far.

      Thanks for enjoying this. Compared to Greece's ancient history such a 17th Century Château is still considered young. But it is different. Maastricht used to be a Roman city and is the oldest city in The Netherlands.
