With September comes golden roadside wildflowers. I stopped the car and cut a bouquet to have on the table for afternoon tea. A couple of stems of rudbeckia from the garden were tucked in as well.
Goldenrod, black-eyed susans and a few Queen Anne's lace to which I added a golden tint and a butterfly. It is not goldenrod that causes hay fever, the pollen of ragweed is the culprit.
The teacup is a Staffordshire called 'Elizabethan', and has been shared before.
Autumn issues of Victoria and Tea Time magazines to pursue while sipping tea.
The last of the blueberries I picked and dark chocolate Delacre biscuits. With cooler days I'm craving Pumpkin Chai again from David's Teas.
We have to make the most of nice days for afternoon tea on the deck as this is what I wait for all winter long. In the background is hydrangea 'Limelight' which has returned with vigour after being eaten back to half its size by hungry bunnies over winter.
Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' adds a golden glow to my late summer garden.
