Thanks, M. for a perfectly lovely luncheon (can I call it that?) in a magical setting.

Okay, I admit it....the world of Birmingham has indeed passed me by. In the three years that we have lived here, I had never been to Cobb Lane until today. It was charming. There is a lot of other words that I could use, but not many that fit it so well. My friend M. has been wanting to take me there for a while and since this is my birthday month, now is as good a time as any. The lane itself is very quaint, cobblestone. The courtyard is very shaded, restful, and overhanging with greenery. The food was "fairy"-fare with a little rustic, southern charm mixed in. The waiter was from the "west coast" (which doesn't mean California) and was maybe a little too talkative, but very full of dry humor and fun. And being the naive person I am, I never quite knew when he was kidding and when he wasn't. I must say, the company was great as well....
