Tea, Tulips, and Daffodils

On a lazy Saturday, we went out for lunch and then took a walk downtown.

Nothing says spring like a bed of tulips

After our walk, we came home and I brewed a pot of Harney's Yin Hao Jasmine tea. It's a delicious floral blend of white tea and jasmine flowers. It tastes "bright." Very delicious!

Tea is in the dining room today.

A bouquet of daffodils in a Fenton glass vase adorn the tea tray. The Fenton glass was a wedding gift (35 years ago).

A few of my garden's 600 daffodils - I had about 750, but divided and gave some away this spring. These are amongst the last of the daffodils to bloom this year.

Tea today is springy, with daffodils on the tea cup and in my vase, and honeybees on my cute little teapot.

Who wants a nosh with their tea? How about chocolate cake?
