Welcome friends for tea this week. I'm sitting down to a bit of lunch and hope you'll join me.
A wedge of Stilton cheese, butterfly crackers, pickled onions, cherry tomatoes, almonds and grapes.
And Heavenly Cream tea from the Sloane Tea Company.
I was fortunate to have my name drawn at a garden writer's meeting recently to win a special prize.

'The Mayflower' which is a David Austin medium sized shrub rose with a strong Old Rose fragrance.
I can hardly wait to plant the rose this spring and dream about these big blooms.
My kitchen collection of toys has grown with these purchases from the UK. I've been drooling over cupcake moulds for some time after making plain fondant ones myself with a cookie cutter.
Aren't these adorable on top of a cupcake?
I'm joining these ladies for tea:
