~ a gardening and allotment notebook
Heavens - it's years since I had an afternoon tea - it is a meal that is disappearing from our lives! Soon it will be an endangered species only living in holiday areas.
That was certainly disappointing. gail
I love afternoon tea! And what a cute little sign with the kettle steaming. The scenery is gorgeous in the first shot.
Lovely shots! The first one is so peaceful looking. I love the tea kettle sign and would love to stop by there and enjoy a cup of tea!Thanks for sharing a part of your lovely world!Sylvia
Looks like a nice place.
What a disappointment! Nothing more refreshing than a cup of afternoon tea.
Nos bouilloires sifflent.Our kettles whistle.Good story and nice pic.
Some people just haven't got any consideration do they? Leaving you without a cuppa...
Oh dear, you've awakened the Anglophile inside me. Stopping for tea when I visit England - the very thought conjures up memories that are beyond fond. I love the variety, from tea rooms in National Trust properties to my first cream tea in the countryside to drinking so many cups in a London B&B that I had to see a pharmacist! Cheers!! Alice
I love afternoon tea. It is one of my favourite things to make and to eat. I have taken to making a cream tea for the holiday cottage visitors because I like it so much. Not sure if they do!
Well I was all ready to learn about this wonderful place and what you were being served. Bummer. Next time. :-)Frances
You always have the best ideas : ) What a fun K! Love it to pieces! So fun!
A very tempting sign, always disappointing to arrive at a tea shop when they close early or on the wrong day, so near yet so far. I visted the beautiful Malverns for the first time last month where we were treated to tea at the cottage in the woods. I will have to look out for the kettle sings next time I visit.
Wish they'd start afternoon tea in the states. I always do it for myself, but it's so nice to go out for it. Your little spot Fancy a cuppa looks like a great spot for tea.
Hi Anna~~ The sign alone is reason to stop in for a cuppa. I bet it's a lovely place. Love the scenery in the first photo.
Sorry you had to miss such a delightful sounding place. I guess its just a good excuse to go there again..
So sorry you couldn't go in for a cup of tea! The name sounds so inviting, and after an afternoon of such beautiful scenery I'm sure you were ready to relax for awhile.
Oh, too bad to have missed it - It looks like an absolutely perfect spot to spend an afternoon.
Great K, but a shame the place was closed and you missed your cuppa...
I always enjoy afternoon tea in the fall and winter. This morning I planned on doing it because it was pouring rain, but by afternoon it was sunny as summer. Maybe tomorrow...
that sure must have been disappointing!
Last time I had afternoon tea was 1999 in Barbados. Terribly civilized that; we should import that in the US.
Maybe they need a rest from the hordes that descend on the Malverns at weekends!
Beautiful scenery. What a shame you couldn't have your afternoon tea.
My dad had a way round that when I was little. We'd depart for the day to the Malverns on the bus with dad wearing a rucksack containing the primus stove, kettle, water, milk, tea and coffee! There's nothing like a cuppa when you're atop Worcestershire Beacon :)
I could enjoy a spot of afternoon tea, right now!! Especially with little fancy cakes or scones. Mmmm!Shame these little teashops are closing, isn't it?
That caught my eye, as I'm originally from Malvern. A shame that it was shut. You were pretty close to Paul Picton's Michaelmas daisy nursery - did you stumble across it?
