Cherries and Tea...

Since Mike had a long weekend...
we took a little road trip
across Mount Rainer today.

I will share a few photos tomorrow.

For today though...  I am running late for tea!

(click photos to enlarge)

A simple quick tea it is...

A cup of green tea...
in my mix and match garage sale rosy cup:-)

I filled my little glass basket with Rainer Cherries to nosh...
 I bought them straight out of the orchard
in Naches today.

The vase is full of High Hopes Roses
they are a couple days old
and looking a little droopy
I though it added to their charm:-)

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!
I will show you a peak of mine tomorrow.

Today I am joining...

Such a pretty little glass basket. The cherries look like little apples in it. Incredibly sweet. Take care.

Hi, Bella!

How lovely your rose vignette is. And I think that roses are prettiest when they are full blown and soft with their petals starting to fall. And yours are pink perfection.

Happy Tea Time Tuesday!

I just love finding tea cups at local antique stores and sales ... it really makes a nice setting when the tea cups do not match... I love seeing who picks what tea cup. The roses look great!! ...HHL

Tina Eudora said...

Oh Bella what a lovely arrangement for the photos. I just love the cherries with the roses, they are perfect together!
Green tea is very refreshing and with this hideous weather we have been having (96 here)cool green tea is perfect! Have a wonderful day....

That is definitely a stunningly elegant cup. I love your glass basket, very appropriate for your cherries. And yes, your roses have wonderful character.
