NATIONAL AFTERNOON TEA WEEK for "Tea In The Garden"


Welcome to National Afternoon
Tea Week and tea time celebrations:




Today I noticed 3 ripe peaches on the
counter and decided to bake the Peach 
Kuchen recipe I saw in the July/August
issue of Victoria.


After setting up my little tea time in the garden, 
a little bunny came by to check things out:









It is quite hot out today, humid and
this little vignette will happen fast.




We will enjoy the Kuchen!



I hope you get a chance to celebrate
National Afternoon Tea Week.
I am sharing a photo collage from a
tea I had last Sunday for some new friends 
 down in my "underground" tea room:


This was my first experience at baking
some Gluten Free items for this tea
and I found it
a good experience as 3 ladies were GF.
These photos were at the end of course 
as like many I was so busy I forgot to
grab my camera.

I hope you can join me today by
sharing a link from your blog to
my tea related blog party!

SWEET AUGUST MEMORIES for "Tea In The Garden"

Sometimes it's fun to look back and 
remember other times and places:


So let's take a few minutes and
look back today at some
old August issues of Victoria magazine.



We have actually had some days in the 80's lately
which has been quite wonderful given the fact
that usually temperatures are in the high 90's now.



I have never been the greatest fan
 of August but
I try to have a good attitude and
 take whatever
comes.


The August 1988 issue had a wonderful
article about Beatrix Potter.  This
was Victoria's first monthly issue at
that time.  I love the photography in these
magazines.





If you love tea time, I hope you can
 join me with a post about tea time
from your blog - at the bottom of this post.






I have been enjoying the bees and the
butterflies today.  At any given time 
in our yard the Cicadas are  screaming
 very loud.  I have to confess,
they scare me a little.  Let's just say, I
don't ever want one on me!

August 14-20 is National Afternoon
Tea Week - I hope you will join me
next week for my blog party to
celebrate during that special week.
