A Spot of Tea


Won't you drop by for a spot of tea? 


It's the house with the red door and pink daisies.


Today, I'm in the mood to bake 


My very favourite strawberry cake!


Where would you prefer to sit?

 

It's cozy, here, in the living room,


Especially, in the quiet of the afternoon.


Or, how about we get some sun?


 

Doesn't that sound like fun?


Let me grab a towel or two,


And tea is served for me and you!


Thanks for visiting!

  2. Hello Poppy

    How could anyone refuse your generous and warm invitation. I love that red chair, or the couch. Perhaps I shall make that decision when I arrive at your home filled with flowers.

  5. So brightly colored everywhere - a home so full of joy obviously, love it. The red flowers in the vase are gorgeous - love non-formal arrangements and this one is perfect! Being a Brit I would love to sit here with a cuppa.

    Happy weekend Poppy.
