Afternoon Tea

Taking advantage of a Christmas gift voucher we had Afternoon Tea at David Austin Roses. The weather was perfect, after several rainy days the sun came out allowing us to enjoy the gardens before indulging in tasty treats in the tea room.

    Naughty but nice, indeed, Cherry. I can’t think of a better way to describe it…for that every-once-in-awhile experience.

  2. What a lovely afternoon tea. The gardens there are very good.

    Eating luscious afternoon tea in the sunshine, surrounded by beautiful gardens, is never naughty. You are absorbing the history and atmosphere of the Priory Church, and analysing the priorities of the National Trust.

      On this occasion I was enjoying the sunshine and the beauty of the Roses in the show gardens. And remembering that I need to get refocussed on ‘my’ garden project :-)

  4. That looks so inviting, I hope to join you and Mr. C some day!

    By the way, I LOVE that green dress! I have one that’s very similar to it, actually, only with a slightly larger print. I often wear my big straw sunhat with it :)

      The dress is new from an independant dress shop. I tried on several and this was Mr C’s favourite. I will have to try it with a hat, although that will probably be next year now. Autumn is setting in over here.

  5. The long pond reminded me of Kensington Roof Garden.
    Sadly, it is now closed for good.
