Tea on the Lawn

Hi Dear Folk,

Lots of lightening, thunder and rain last night so it may have broken the heat wave, but it still feels pretty humid.  Everything dries up quite quickly in this heat so tea on the lawn would be possible today.

On that thought of summer days and tea outside, here we see a simple tea.  She's wearing her hat but I see an umbrella there, or is it a parasol?  Silver kettle and teapot with bone china cups.  Apples and a cottage loaf, it looks like she's waiting for others to join her and the rest of the edibles are still in her basket.

  1. Lovely and makes me feel relaxed just looking at it. I am a great believer in eating outside at every opportunity or even just sitting on the patio with a cup of tea. We could do with some rain now. Having a hot few days but still feels Autumnal.
