For the love of roses!

Today I have an offering of rose photos I have taken this Spring, mostly from my garden, a few taken elsewhere.

I love to cut a few roses and other flowers from the garden and bring them indoors, this bunch is sitting up on my kitchen dresser amidst my pink rose china.

Tea for Two- Princess Roses March 29

My friend dropped in for tea, so we set up on the front verandah.

We indulged in a pot of Lemon verbena, a truly relaxing tea.

Our teaset today is Queen Anne- Princess Roses, made in England.

Teacup Tuesday March 22- American Beauty

Here we are again outside my bedroom french doors on the verandah with a vintage linen hand embroidered tablecloth.
Today's china pattern is American Beauty by Royal Albert. It is made in England and is a popular pattern with full bloomed pink roses. It is one of my favourites by Royal Albert, the other being Old English Roses... perhaps I will feature that one next week.

First we pour the milk in, then place the silver strainer on top of the cup (although some say you should hold it above the cup) pour the tea through the strainer, return the strainer to the matching silver recepticle, stir and enjoy your tea. (of course some add sugar and some omit the milk and add lemon.)
TODAY, I am enjoying T2 Rooibos Red Fancy Fruit Tea, (Rooibos is from South Africa and from a different plant to black and green tea). This tea can be enjoyed with or wthout milk.

Do stay for "Tea"

Teatime Tuesday March 8

I can't believe that I haven't posted a teatime post since last October...
Well Summer is over in the Blue Mountains near Sydney Australia...
Definitely an Autumn chill up here... time for those mid morning pots of tea with a cosy... on the verandah or in the garden if there is some sunshine...

This little table is right outside french doors from our bedroom, I picked a few of the last flush of Summer roses on Saturday and enjoyed a pot of tea here today.

This is a lovely VINTAGE cup and saucer {I also have a matching teaplate} from Royal Vale. Pink roses seemed appropriate today. The other tennis set you can see in one of the top photos is "Roses to Remember" by Royal Stafford- both are vintage bone china made in England.

I'm hoping to link into Tuesday Tablescape with marty (A Stroll Thru Life)
and Teacup Tuesday with Terri @
and Martha's Favorites @
but will have to wait for Tuesday to arrive in their part of the world.
Marty is away looking after her grandson, so I don't know whether her linky will be up.
