Tea with Friends - Strawberry Time


The strawberries were ready last week which is earlier than usual.  I went to the local farm to pick some and they were so plump and sweet.

I froze a couple of large zip lock bags worth but kept the rest for eating fresh.  I'll have to make something to have with our tea today.

One cup and saucer we'll be using is this Windsor bone china with the flowers inside.


And the other is bone china from Bavaria Germany.



Can you guess what treat I made for us?


Chocolate dipped strawberries!  I didn't want to cover up the pretty yellow butterfly on the plate.


I'm joining these friends for tea today:  Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, Lady Katherine at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor and Martha at Martha's Favorites.  Won't you join us too?

  2. What wonderful teacups, Judith; bright and sunny and perfect with your chocolate covered berries! Our berry season hasn't started yet but hopefully it won't be too long coming. Then again, I don't want to wish the summer away either; our season is so short. Wonderful tea post today and delicious too! Thank you for joining me for Tea Time and have a wonderful evening.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  3. Beautiful teacups Judith, the butterfly matches the yellow of the teacups perfectly. Of course I would notice the butterfly. Strawberries are ready here and will be making strawberry jam soon. Jen

  8. O, what beautiful tea cups and saucers. Just stunning. And, the strawberries...ummmm, chocolate covered strawberries are the ultimate! Your photos are wonderful.

    We had the absolute most beautiful weather on our cruise to Alaska. We took sweaters, heavy coats, caps and scarves...never used any of them. Weather was like 65 most of the time. Wonderful!!
    I know you will love Alaska but living in Canada, you are used to seeing beautiful country, with mountains and snow...we live on the plains which have no mountains...this Alaska was so beautiful to our eyes. Just magnificent. I know you will love it, too.

  9. Hello Judith, Ha we both have strawberries, dipping yours in chocolate how indulgent, Mmmm! I love the solid coloring (colouring, so much prettier to spell your way) on the outside of your teacup, it really sets off the lovely flowers:-)
