Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A Blue Tea

As you know every afternoon
at half past three
I stop
And brew a pot of tea

Put on a tray
with a vintage dishtowel as a tray cloth
(its blue and has birds)

Spode Camilla cup and saucer
with gold trim

Camilla is a favorite Spode pattern of mine

And lemon cookies
Not made by me
But bought at a bakery in the city
There are good boughten cookies in the city!

Orange tulips make tea just a little more special!

It's Tuesday and I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and with Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Inspire Me Tuesday.

I really like the blue cup as blue is my favorite color. The orange tulips do add a punch of spring too.

Assembling a pretty tray just for you makes your afternoon tea a little more special. The blue and white theme is pretty.

Good morning Martha,
You know I love your Spode blue! Orange tulips add a pop of springtime. Tulips or not, your china looks gorgeous all on its own. Lovely tea tray and the cookies look good too. Thanks for coming to tea.
