Tuesday Tea Time in the Garden

Wow, what gorgeous weather we are having, it's a little windy but feels good. Having my tea outside today, got a new teawagon at the auction on Friday so going to use it. Instead of sweets though, having fruit and cheese, I was bad on the weekend. A new tearoom opened in neighbouring town -Port Hope, so we visited it. It is called........ (have to get back with the name-forgotten), was a tea room years and years ago and was very successful, the owners just got tired of the work and retired.
Will show a couple of pictures of it, before I do my tea.

Very lovely inside, lots of teacups, prints on the floor of Walter Campbell, a local artist from the town of Uxbridge, linen table cloths very lovely. To the left is a door out to the patio. The rest of the house is a B&B very nicely decorated.

Frank studying the menu, tea was excellent, had a herbal tea, and Frank had a coffee. Hadn't had his quota for the day yet. We ordered High tea for two, came on  three tiered plates, bottom was sandwiches-cucumber, egg, tuna-maybe 8 quarters-were excellent, fresh-crusts on. But that was okay, second tier had two scones, tiny, with a ? drew a blank on the small dish of Devonshire cream and another of jam, no butter and scones were a little hard, but ok. The top tier had two strawberries cut in half and two small tarts, excellent but not enough. I ordered a carrot cake besides and it was great. See if you want scones, you get one, seemed cheesy to me, but I will try it again, atmosphere was wonderful. She also had quiche and salad and it was a great proportion. So will try it the next time.

Now for my tea today, because I had the carrot cake on Saturday (not to mention an ice cream cone Sunday) I'm not having a sweet today or tomorrow or anytime in the future.

My new brass tea wagon, ( I had bid on a walnut tea wagon also, but didn't get it, will be more in the future),
Using a yellow teapot with gold to match the tea wagon, it is one I have had for years and love it, (have seen it in a deep blue and it's gorgeous with the gold) tea pot is a Burslem,

Cup n saucer is a Royal Albert Evesham is the pattern, looking for  one with yellow and it so pretty. Had another one -a Shelley, doesn't match though it has daffodils, one has roses and I have a tea coaster that has blossoms on it, quite mixed up. Then my fruit and cheese is on Serena it at least has the roses to match the cup n saucer-a little tacky-oh well got the colour right anyways.

A cup of peppermint tea

my punishment for overeating...

Turned out Frank didn't get home to join me for a cup of tea, so this didn't get used, so not too mismatched,
and the Tea Coaster below (not the proper name-not doing so well today, wrong names, not matching-weather is great though)

it is so pretty, another auction goody that I have had for years.
