Welcome friends for tea this week. Thinking ahead, I put together a post for Sandi's 'Savour the Summer' Tea since I'm posting from Ireland.
Summer is fresh and juicy strawberries that often end up on a Queen Victoria sponge cake.
This is also when carpet roses lining the front walkway begin to bloom, and continue until frost. That's my lavender hedge in the background.
Climbing 'New Dawn' rose is on an arbour at the front and also as you enter the backyard. Her delicate pink colour and fragrance is why I repeated the use of the same rose.
The red and white Johnson Brothers teacup seemed a good match for a chocolate dipped strawberry on the side. Thanks for visiting and I'll try to find time to get around to everyone else.
I'm linking with Rose Chintz Cottage for 'Savour the Summer' tea party. Thanks for hosting Sandi.
