Last evening I decided to have a teatime in the garden
with food from the garden.
There is an over abundance right now
and I am barely keeping up with it all.
You should see my kitchen, but no not really.
There are plums, apples, and tomatoes everywhere.
I decided to try a new recipe for plum-rhubarb crisp.
Yes, the rhubarb even came from the garden.
It was delicious.
When I went picking I picked a few nasturtiums too.
They are so pretty decorating my plates, but also just shining in the garden.
Then there were tomato and basil sandwiches too.
I guess I could have made tea from the garden too,
but I chose Doke Black Fusion, a second flush 2019 handmade organic black tea from India.
Thanks, Lochan Tea for this delightful tea.
It was perfect with my garden teatime.
And just because I wanted you to see my violets.
I gathered them together without the food.
The bare plate is standing in for the 9 plates I just found at
an antique sale. I couldn't believe I found 9 of these beauties for $7. total.
I don't often buy plates anymore, as I have so many;
but who could resist. Limoges Haviland is also a weakness of mine,
especially when there are violets.
The cup and saucer are from my grandfathers set of violets and daisies.
So there you have it and a beginning to the weekend.
Now I must go make some jam with plums of course.
Plus there are more apples to peel and make apple pie filling for the freezer.
Winter will have some special treats.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
