Tea on the Terrace and Late Summer Flowers
A Cup Of Twinings Tea and A Jam Jar Posy…..
As many of you know some of my loves are gardening, flowers, ribbon and a cup of Twinings Earl Grey tea. So I thought I’d share all four with you today!
I pottered around my garden this morning and enjoyed a seemingly rare moment of sunshine! The garden is looking full, colourful and scented, so I thought I’d bring in a few of the flowers into my home. I cut stems of Anemone, scented Sweet Peas (rather proud of these as I grew them from seed this year!), spikes of Salvia, Mint, Scabious Verbena Bonariensis and a single stem of strawberry ‘Pink Panther’ …..
Flowers & Ribbon:
I created a mini hand-tied bouquet and cut the stems to fit neatly in to a jam jar I had been saving in the cupboard. With my slight obsession with ribbon, I then looked through my box of Jane Means ribbons and found a perfect narrow stitched purple ribbon to tie around the neck of the jam jar. I think the end result is cute! It would be ideal for a bedside table or group a few together and you would have a perfect table centre for an English country wedding. Simple, home-grown and beautiful…..
So after my hard work (well 10 minutes of strolling around with secatuers and 5 minutes creating the flower arrangement!) I thought I deserved a cup of tea, I had been saving a box of Twinings Liquorice Allsorts Earl Grey Tea for just the right moment. The sun was shining, the garden was peaceful. So I wandered into my kitchen picked up a book on British Baking, made a cup of tea, sat in the garden, read and enjoyed my tea whilst planning my next baking adventure!
The tea by the way is delicious, the flavour of Earl Grey we are use to with a delicate hint of liquorice and sweetness. For this afternoon I think I’ll try either Twinings new Camomile and Honeycomb or a refreshing Twinings Green Tea….. whats your favourite tea?
