Tea time at Linderhof
is every afternoon at half past three
Usually, it is just me
Occasionally Husband Jim will join me, but not often
And sometimes, a friend or two will stop by
Or perhaps I should say when a friend stops by it's a good excuse
to put the kettle on!
I love the winter sunshine in the breakfast room
It makes for a nice tea time
And as mother always said
Make things nice for yourself
I had company for lunch and the china and silver were already out
So they're perfect this day for tea time
A pear and walnut muffin
From one of my favorite cookbooks, Country Weekend Entertaining, by Anna Pump
I'm surprised that I've never tried this recipe before
But it's a perfect receipe to use the last of the Harry and David pears!
And the rest . . .
Make a nice plate to take to a friend
It's Tuesday and I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.
Your breakfast room always looks cozy for lunch or tea Martha. I like the two hyacinths on the table for a touch of spring.
Oh my goodness, your table always looks beautiful. Love the colours today and I will have to try adding pears to muffins. That will be new for me. We are freezing in Ontario, Martha so we may be having tea more than once today. :) Deb
Oh, how lovely and inviting your table looks!!! And the muffins look scrumptious! Your home is lovely and I wholeheartedly agree on the two thumbs up for Les Mis!
Thanks for visiting our little "living room." :)

How cozy your breakfast room looks with the sun shining in. And flowers gracing the table makes it look so pretty too. I would imagine the pears make your muffins really moist and I bet they are delish! As always, it is a real pleasure to have you join me for tea. Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day, my friend.
Lovely spot for afternoon tea!
What a perfect little muffin for your tea time trea, Martha. I need to find that cookbook!!
