It's been unseasonably cool for July on the prairie
And rainy as well
Which means that the weeds are growing rampantly
But then so is everything else.
Sundays we always have Sunday lunch out
A tradition that we started when we lived in England that Spring
And like in our England days,
supper is either cheese and crackers
or this summer a shake from Sonic
or, occasionally, a tea!
And because of the wonderful weather . . .
Sunday's tea was in the garden
Besides Husband Jim and I, friend Hallie came to join us
It's Sunday and so I got china from the cupboard for tea
and my Aynsley Pembroke tea pot
And my small silver English curate
(Hallie was with me when I bought it at an antique show)
Cheddar scones, fresh from the oven
And olive and cream cheese sandwiches on whole meal bread
(sandwich filling was left over from a meeting a few nights before --
then it served as a dip for vegetables!)
I love the Spode famile rose china
I've just got cups and saucers and tea plates
The dogs shamelessly hung around
Hallie is such a soft touch
I like lace in the garden
I think it looks so refined
And the white geraniums in the Guy Wolff pot were putting on a show!
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing my Sunday afternoon tea with Bernideen for her Tea in the Garden (and this time I am!) and with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
What an inviting scene! And your scones look mouth-watering. xoxo
What a beautiful setting for tea, Martha! I love the little path into the woods behind the tea table; dreamy! Your scones look just wonderful as do the sandwiches. Lovely tea wares too. Such an inviting post and I'd love to join you!
Your garden looks so pretty--love the pathway! What a delicious looking tea--I really like the Spode dishes too :). Have a great week!
A nice little nosh for a light supper outside. I made cheese scones today but I see you have an herb in yours - is it dill?
This looks so lovely and yummy. What a pretty setting you have there in the garden. Love your china. I should try some savory scones; I always make the sweet! But those cheddar one look really good.
Just as lovely as can be.
How beautiful! Wish I was there having tea with such delish goodies in the lovely dishes too.
Oh my... I can practically taste those warm cheddar scones... such a lovely Sunday afternoon!
So lovely! I wish my garden had as much charm as yours! Love the Aynsley...I had a bud vase in that pattern and then regretably sold it on Ebay =(
Such a serene setting for a Sunday Afternoon Tea, dear friend!!!
I love the white lace tablecloth with your potted geraniums!
Gorgeous china and divinely delicious menu.
Thank youfor sharing your lovely Garden @ Linderhof with us!!!
What a delicious tea time meal in your LOVELY GARDEN! Love the brick work everywhere which seems Colonial in style.
