Evening Calm

 Sometimes, in the evening, a nice cup of tea seems just right.

The pink teacup was one of my mother's.

As the sun sets, "Evening Calm" seems an appropriate choice for a "cuppa".

The ingredients, as listed on the packet, are: 
blackberry leaves, raspberry leaves, lavender flowers, orange peel, rose flowers, 
sunflower blossoms, and rosehip shells. 

Fragrant and tasty!

It's time to sit and sip.

The aroma is enticing.

Need I say more?

I'm pleased to be linking with "Tea Party Tuesday" at Sweetology and "Tea Time Tuesday" at Rose Chintz Cottage.

Thank you so much for visiting. I enjoy the company! Let me get another teacup...

Warm Wishes,

  2. This is a fantastic tea cup! I love the regal pink and the flower just peaking out there inside the cup! I am so honored to have you at the party this week, really!!!!!!

  10. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Framed and Tagged'. I like your pink tea cup. I have been taking time out each day for a cup of tea. I was scrolling down, and I saw the red rose. Oh, I loved it, and if you visit our blog, you will see why. While I was reading, I noticed that me and my daughters have alot of the same intersts as you. We love photography, music, decorating; and the girls love to travel. We just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your big and wonderful photos. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
