Royal Albert "Moonlight Rose"

Please join me in welcoming summertime's beautiful weather with tea on the patio.  We can enjoy each other's company here in our glider rocker.  I am linking with Bernideen for Tea in the Garden on Saturday and Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.

I have brought out one of Royal Albert's traditional floral patterns "Moonlight Rose".  This timeless beauty has soft hues of blues and lavender, trimmed in 22k gold with a Montrose shaped handle.

The basket is by Longaberger and I love the oval shape with solid wood bottom - perfect for transporting tea outside.

Our tea today is Blueberry Green Tea.  This tea has a wonderful sweet character with a pleasing astringency.  Can you smell the delightful aroma?  I have paired this tea with some fresh and juicy succulent blueberries.

A peek at the bottom of the cup.

The flax fabric and napkin are embellished with Majolica Garden Crewel embroidery in lovely shades of soft cream and caramel.

Thank you for joining me for tea in the garden.  I appreciate you stopping by and for your wonderful comments.

Love the Moonlight Rose pattern. It is crisp and goes well with other blue patterns. Blueberries make a great compliment.

Another gorgeous tea set. I do not even own one. :)

Hello Donna,
Moonlight Rose is such a beautiful pattern and I wish I had at least one teacup. Your blueberries look wonderful and a real treat with your pretty teacup. A very pleasing tea post! Thank you for joining me for tea today and I wish you a delightful week.
