Lemons Anyone?

Hi everyone,
 
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  The weather was beautiful here and I was able to get quite a bit of gardening done.
 
Please join me for tea today as I share with you my Victorian cottage roses teapot.


Pink roses make me swoon ...


Would you like a slice of lemon with your tea?

 
A lemon fork to dress up the table.  The pattern is French Provincial by Towle (circa 1948).


My choice of tea today is Darjeeling.  A blend of citrus notes with a hint of apricots and plums. 


Fresh roses fill a vintage crystal cruet jar.


A petite slice of cake to nosh.

 
 
A day to enjoy life's simple pleasures.
 
 
Thank you for sipping tea with me!

Morning Donna,
Love photos, and what pretty teapot,
and love those roses, there is just something about roses......
Also that cake looks mighty good too.
Lucky for you it can't be emailed I'd be begging for some and I bet some others would too!! lol

Hope you have a lovely week,
Nellie

Beautiful roses and tea accessories! It was a gorgeously sunny weekend here. I got lots of stuff checked off my "to do" list. No roses here, so I enjoyed seeing yours. Maybe someday we'll have "smell-o-vision" so I can tell how aromatic the flowers are for myself! Have a wonderful day, Donna.

Hi Donna,
Your teapot is really pretty and the lemon fork is lovely. Pink roses always make me swoon, and Hubby just brought me a dozen for our anniversary. They're gorgeous! Your slice of cake is pretty too. A very delightful post. Thanks for sharing and coming to tea.

Blessings,
Sandi

The tea sounds so interesting and flavorful. I hadn't heard of that one.

That has to be the most beautiful slice of cake I have ever seen. Wherever did you get it?

Yes, I would love to come and share some of everything with you. Your roses are spectacular too.
