Well I bet you're going to be surprised, but while Marie is in her garden enjoying her flowers so carefully tended to by her staff, she walks the grounds with her trusty chocolate labrador (even though she may have as many French dogs as she likes), he gives her great comfort:
She's enjoying the unexpected sunshine that just popped up as it's given the flowers a chance to not be weighed down by the rain drops - although she secretly likes it as they appear to be bowing to her royalness just like her subjects (in the good days). And the garden reminds her of her favourite spot - Hameau de la Reine which was built for her at the Petit Trianon in the Yvelines (France of course!)
The bright sunshine also hides that she's actually gotten quite a tan, making her look more like a commoner and reminds herself she must powder more often. But today she shall enjoy herself as it is a lovely spring day in May.
She continues to insist that she never said anything about CAKE! (or rather "gateau", whichever you prefer) but would like to know if you'd like a macaron or two - they are so fruity and delicious! Perhaps we shall fetch some?
