Some teas just are more special than others
Sunday teas often are
Served in the breakfast room
Where most afternoon teas are taken
Celebrating this Sunday
(not a football win)
but the fact that once again I could buy tulips
A true harbinger of Spring
That it is just around the corner
And tulips make me smile!
I splurged . . .
on two packages
It has to be special, this first "Tulip Tea"
And since the house was clean, the silver polished,
I used my silver teapot
And a special cup and saucer which was a birthday gift from a friend
One of my favorite cookies.
I liked them even as a kid when they called them "elephant ears"
And we would buy them at the Cake Box Bakery
(my brother went for the chocolate chip -- I went for the elephant ears!)
I always keep a supply in the freezer for they make a quick tea time treat.
Sometimes I'll make savory ones as well --
They make a great nibble when we have guests for cocktails.
Tulips will be on the table until the real tulips bloom in the spring
My favorite are the orange ones!
And that's the color I chose most often.
Tea, Tulips, Palmiers
There is not a better Sunday afternoon!
It's Tuesday and I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea.
