Cool Autumn Day...

A beautiful cool Autumns day
perfect for a strong hot tea
on the patio...

(click photos to enlarge)

Huckleberry flavored black tea
in a simple
cream colored Spode cup...

Autumn colored Lantana blossoms...


A farm fresh Karmijn De Sonneville apple...


and a pretty view of the last glistens of sun
through the trees...

A relaxing moment
good for the soul...
