Peaches and Cream Tea

Good Afternoon,
I am having tea in our sun room again so I hope you will join me. My theme for today is peaches and cream so I am using my peachy teapot.
I made buttermilk biscuits again and I am using peach jam on them. I picked some peachy narcissus from the garden.
try one-they are still warm from the oven.
Isn't this a beauty-it was my inspiration for the peaches and cream tea today!
This pretty teacup fits right in.
I love how this old pitcher looks with the bouquet.
A couple of friends asked for this recipe last week so I hope you are visiting today-sorry I am a little slow. You can click on to enlarge to read it easier.
I want to thank my friend Georgianna at Georgiannia Lane for giving me some photography tips and I am practicing. Georgianna has the most amazing professional photography blog and is a lovely person as well. I am sure you will love visiting her as much as I do!
I am going to join in with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch who also has an amazing blog with lots of great tablescapes on Tablescape Thursday.
Thank you for visiting me,
Carolyn

Dear Carolyn....The tea, pot, cup, and flowers are all absolutely gorgeous. Loved every single one! But Carolyn, for heaven's sakes, your biscuits and jam are wayyyyyyy too delicious and I'm not supposed to eat them! Trying to diet, you know. Your treats are always so delish. Take care and thanks for such a picturesque post. Sincerely, Susan

Love your tea pot, Carolyn, and since I have the matching cream and sugar, I've been keeping my eye out for the tea pot as well. Your biscuits look yummy and the narcissus is lovely! A beautiful post!

The narcissus must be what I thought was a peach daffodil. Silly me...
Anyways... That has to be one of the prettiest flowers I've seen!

Nicole said...

Cindy said...

Lovely photos, I don't know how yours could be any better. I could use some help, that is certain. I make biscuits quite often, not with buttermilk, though. I'm sure those are as delicious as they look and even more so with peach jam mmmm...

Dear Carolyn,
thank you for this nice tea time!
You know what? I've just read an article in an Italian magazine called "La mia abitazione Country & Country" that speaks about you and your absolutely stunning garden!When I saw it I run to my husband saying "she's a blog friend of mine, look here". It was so exciting to find you there!
Would you like me to scan the article and send it to you by e mail?
Kisses,
Fra
