Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four

Start with a dozen smiles
Add a pint of pleasant days
A heaping cup of happiness
A tablespoon of praise
Stir in lots of sugar
Be sure to add some spice
A handful of good humor
Always makes things nice
Mix it all together
Til you get a perfect blend
And you'll have something special
A once in a Lifetime Friend!

Thank you for being my friend!

Re my squirrel blogpal,tried to get him photographed with darling Clive & moi all TOGETHER but he'd disappeared before I'd even finished posting those pics of him all over the world! But now I know where he is - in Dorset! Hmmm!! Am looking forward to the next scoop - a sighting of him posing under yr peony bush!

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Hello there Duchess!!

I just can't get enough of your photos. They are all so dreamy. Like a treat for my eyes.
Your peony post is just breathtaking. State flower of Indiana...hmmm...wonder if hubby will go there with me??? heeheehee! Too bad I didn't know it was the 12th anniversary flower, I just had my 12th anniversary this past april. I would've decorated the whole house with peonies.
Love, love, love your blog.
♥ Rebecca

Linda Higgins said...

OH MY GOODNESS I was so surprised to see your post about figs! I am a little naive about this delicious fruit and on a walk one evening we stumbled across a fig tree, which I had never seen before! My huhoney plucked a ripened fruit from the tree and opened it up and immediately took a taste! He shared his perfect experience with me and I was thrilled! It was like an unspoken Garden of Eden experience! LOL I am definetely going to plant a fig tree, they are soooo beautiful!

OceanDreams said...
