Tea with Abigail

Hello everyone,
It's Tea Time in the garden today. If you're new or have been a friend or follower for awhile you know I love any tea. I love to drink it, photograph it and write about it. While I was in Boston a couple of weeks ago I went to the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. HERE. After the tour of the museum sweetheart and I had tea in Abigail's Tea Room. I purchased a few tea things in the gift shop. So pour a cup a tea and sit back for a few minutes and I'll share my fun things I brought home.
The weather is cooling down here in Northern California, but we are still having a little dry wind. I made my favorite Chicken Salad sandwiches on croissants with fresh grapes and strawberries. Recipe for sandwiches HERE

I'm having another bloom of roses. The beautiful red roses are 'Don Juan' and Bat Face Cuphea flowers 
I couldn't resist buying a tea bag caddy with the Boston Tea Party 1773 logo. 
Abigail's tea bags are pyramid shape and the flavor is wonderful
I have been collecting tea cups for awhile and now when I shop the thrift stores, I'm looking for tea cups with solid colors on the outside of the tea cup and on the top of the saucer. I found this tea cup and it reminded me of fall.

I'm collecting tea towels and the gift shop had this white tea towel with a tea pot and cups stacked on top...I couldn't resist.

The garden is turning a beautiful golden color.

I love sitting at my little table outside under the pomegranate tree and enjoying a cup of tea and a delicious sandwich with some fruit. It's so peaceful.

Hope you enjoyed your little rest and I enjoyed sharing my little tea things with you.
