As I write this post there is music to my ears with the pitter patter of rain outside. It's been a while since we had any and the gardens will be happy to soak up a deep drink. I planted my veggie seeds yesterday and this will save me from keeping them moist for germination.
The scent of lilacs is perfuming the air, these are the four varieties I have. Dwarf 'Miss Kim' and 'Palabin' are below the kitchen window where the sink is.
It's always nice to bring a bouquet in for the table too.
I have one more tea from my order at Murchie's which I find as delightful as the others.
From the website: a blend of black and green teas with hints of caramel and brioche, with a malty finish.
I wasn't in Paris sipping this tea but I did have it one afternoon on the deck table using a lily-of-the-valley teacup along with a small vase of the flowers from the garden. A scone slathered in lemon curd accompanied my tea.
Happy gardening, don't forget to take time out for afternoon tea!
