Tea Cups , Spring and Things




Spring is on it's way  I can see from my dining room as I type this my tree is starting to bud , the tree is in the shrubbery and this amuses me especially with Monthy Python and the knights that say Ni.

The cat is on the fence literally on the fence and not on the fence about politics and the situation in the EU , I really don't know what a cat's view on politics is , I may well have to interview the cat on this situation.

Valentine's Day was on a budget following on from those Tesco flowers (voucher used) . A visit to the grounds of Kedleston Hall was in order and everyone had the same idea . This was no problem as I had my trusty walking shoes in the car ! I had to gaze longingly and lovingly upon the snow drops with their flower heads bowed in reverence .

We do rather enjoy our National Trust membership, especially when there is so much stately majestic beauty on our doorstep. It's like having your own stately home but without the cleaning , though I'd quite to have a library I could lose myself in. Or indeed a wardrobe where I could find my beloved Narnia .

It was 2 for 1 at ye olde Starbucks , we pushed the boat out and has a tuna and cheese croissant ~ don't tell me I don't know how to live .

My favourite tree this week is this one , I had to step back to see how tall it was . I sort of get giddy when looking up at tall objects ! 

Tea will be served at 3pm bring your own cucumber sandwiches .


  1. Gorgeous pictures! The grounds are simply stunning and perfect for a walk! Though I must say the Starbucks picture is pretty good too!! LOL. I'll be there for tea if you will bring out the cakes.

  2. Lovely photos of the snowdrops! YES....spring is coming! :)
