Welcome friends for tea this week. July 1 is Canada Day for Canadians to celebrate, but also our wedding anniversary. Hubby and I have been married 41 years, hard to believe how time flies.
The carpet roses are starting to bloom like crazy along the front walkway and the butterfly garden on the right will be filled with flowers later this month.
It has spectacular leaves and is an opportunity for a shout out to the Canadian bloggers in Vancouver for Canada Day.
To celebrate our anniversary, I've put some tea things on a silver tray to carry out to the tea house.
The Royal Albert teapot in Lavender Rose pattern is my favourite to use for special occasions.
Fresh blueberry scones with marmalade and whipped cream to have with delicious Earl Grey tea.
I didn't dress up like this for our anniversary but was recently in need of a photo of me in the tea house for a magazine article and hubby obligingly snapped a few shots.
Wouldn't it be nice to put on a pretty dress (the one I'm wearing is a Laura Ashley) and a fancy hat for afternoon tea every day? Care to join me?

Thank you to my hosts and I hope you'll make yourself a cup of tea while visiting them and their guests.
