Today I went to our local farmers market and purchased one of these cute cookies from Holly's Sweets & Eats to have with my afternoon tea. Mmm, it had cardamon in it and was delicious.
I pulled out my poppy teacup with the handle that is one of the most comfortable for holding a cuppa.
Just behind the teacup is a pretty stained glass piece I picked up on the weekend.
We've been buying local honey for a number of years from Dickey Bee and this year they're selling their own maple syrup. I'm glad I was at the market to buy a bottle from them as I do like to support the local businesses and we were running low on it.
As usual, a bit of honey in my tea and the anticipation of trying the maple syrup on something - frozen yogurt perhaps?
Dickey Bee also sells bee pollen as one their other products. A discussion started between the vendor, another lady and myself on the benefits of eating it. Anyone taking it who can offer their two cents worth?
