Afternoon Tea in the Garden

" There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as an afternoon tea." - Henry James

This morning after getting the children off to school ...I prepared my scone mix and baked them gently in the oven. While the tea was brewing and the scones baking... I went to the parlor and found my favorite teacup my daughter Suzi gave me for holiday 13 years ago. Sitting in my garden I shared the birdsong with warm strawberry scones and a hot cup of Joy. I agree with Henry James... there are a few hours more agreeable than this ceremony. Do you enjoy a slow cup of tea?
