This black and yellow cup and saucer made me think of a bee in the garden. It's Old Royal Bone China 'Wetley Rose' The fat bee on the side of the saucer is one of the weights I use outside to hold my tablecloth down.
The saucer has two rose buds surrounded by a gold coloured design.
Help yourself to honey for your tea from the little honeypot.
I picked some rhubarb from the garden to make one of my favourite desserts.........
A German Rhubarb Coffee Cake that makes a 9 x 13 pan. (See the Lavender Cottage recipe page to make this delicious cake)
I'm using my stainless steel bee napkin rings for my bee themed tea too.
A friendly bee on a daylily leaf has decided to join us.
