teacupEach cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage. ~Catherine Douzel

 

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.

~Faith Greenbowl

 

I'm sending you love and tea,

To warm your winter's day.

Think of me as you pour your cup

And all the good things we would say.

If we could be together now

Instead of miles apart,

We'd sip our teas and memories,

The sweet warmth fills the heart.

- Susan Young

 

I wish we could sit down together,

And have a cup of tea,

But since we can't

When you have this one,

I hope you'll think of me.

If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; if you are depressed, it will cheer you; if you are exhausted, it will calm you.

~William Gladstone

 

Afternoon Tea

My copper kettle

whistles merrily

and signals that

it is time for tea.

The fine china cups

are filled with the brew.

There's lemon and sugar

and sweet cream, too.

But, best of all

there's friendship, between you and me.

As we lovingly share

our afternoon tea.

~Marianna Arolin

 

My sweet daughter-n-law found this little poem and I wanted to share it with you. It goes like this:

The Tea Party

I had a little tea party

This afternoon at three.

'Twas very small-

Three guest in all-

Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate all the sandwiches,

While I drank up the tea;

'Twas also I who ate the pie

And passed the cake to me.

~Jessica Nelson North


I sometimes take a little quote or a poem like this and type it out, then cut it with my fancy scissors and paste it on a sheet of watercolor paper that I have colored. A few weeks ago, I did this using the heart shape and then put them on napkins rings I had made as a favor to take home.

Could you all come for tea? ~Mary

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
