Violets and Spring Flowers for Tea Time

"It is spring again.
The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Welcome friends to Tea Time!
I am seeing small changes around our property and even though signs of winter still linger about, this wondrous, magical and childlike season of rebirth is here.

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. ~ Hal Borland

Tea time is me time, a time to savour and reflect. It's a time to share a cup with friends, a time of  comfort, camaraderie, and closeness. ~ Sandi W.

I set up a small tea table in front of the window and I am using my Sadler "Spring Crocus" teapot. This lovely teapot is covered in spring posies; daffodils, crocuses, irises, violets, etc.. I love how it has flowers on both sides, the handle, the top, and the spout.

And a Royal Albert Violets teacup.

Yes, it's February, one of their Flowers of the Month teacups, but I won't tell anyone if you won't.

There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea. ~ Bernard-Paul Heroux

I'm having a cup of David's Pumpkin Chai tea. It is really an Autumn tea but I like the spice all year round. It is a black tea with cinnamon, cloves, lemon peel, squash, carrot, caramel, and pumpkin candies....Delicious!

Tea and ginger snaps.
