A Spot of Tea



                                                                      Hello everyone,
        It was a nice day here today and we were busy getting ready for our first House & Garden tour from Japan today. There is always more to do to be ready for the first tour but I think we are ready!
                                                How about a spot of tea today?
                                         My new tea cups that I bought in England came home with me in my carry on for safe keeping.
                               We have lots of tulips and daffodils etc. blooming in the garden now.

                                                        A pretty new hydrangea.




                                           Look the pale pink and green tones.
        Just a quick spot of tea today as there is lots to do.

              I am joining/Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.


              Thank you for visiting,

                      Carolyn

I am amazed that just a few weeks back you had snow and now you have hydrangeas - that's amazing! Beautiful!

Olá Carolyn,

Após um dia de trabalho e uma reunião no colégio do meu filho, cheguei mais tarde hoje em casa e tive a surpresa em saber que seu livro havia chegado.
Me emocionei muito ao desfrutar de cada página, lembranças maravilhosas. É como se eu caminhasse novamente pelo jardim, sentindo o perfume das flores e ouvindo os pássaros como naquela bela tarde que estivemos aí. O livro ficou maravilhoso e é difícil saber qual é a foto mais bonita. É como se eu recebesse o mais belo presente.Vou guardar para os meus netos e poder dizer que estivemos aí.
Precisei segurar para não chorar e precisava dizer isso a você.Você me passa muita paz e tranquilidade.

Obrigada querida.

Feliz primavera. Espero ansiosa cada publicação.

Um beijo.

Lauriane e Cleumacir

Hydrangeas and tea cups - two of my favourite things. I do love the pale green teacup with roses. Really pretty.

I hope you have some nice weather for your garden tour. The cups and saucers you bought in England are so pretty. They almost look like the bridal rose pattern. That hydrangea is gorgeous! Blessings, Pamela
