Tea Rose on Tea Tuesday

A play on words today, because my tea is hiding under the rose bush that has just produced


a second rose of the season. Today's tea is one I've had before: Chun Mee, a green tea from China. Although you can't tell (because I'm still using this really bad camera), I'm drinking my tea in a traditional Oriental cup and the rose only looks small due to the camera angle.

Are you drinking something interesting today? Whatever it is, please join Kimmie and my Tea Tuesday friends and show us your favorite drink, whether it's warm or cool!

For me it's coffee, ALWAYS coffee! But I enjoy following your tea dinking explorations and that rose is gorgeous!!!

Lately it's been a lot of iced tea, sun tea, and herbal tea, and of course iced water...lots of it. It's so hot and humid here, but we are used to it somewhat, more than most I guess. I love taking a glass of water with frozen fruit dropped into it, out onto the new patio in the evenings.
Have a wonderful day.

Our roses haven't started blooming yet, so I enjoyed seeing yours and your pretty tea cup hiding below it.

I'm seriously (I think) considering re-doing my fireworks page with the darker one--I'm going to think on it and see whether it would damage the images too much to just cut around them.

Hi Elizabeth, what a beautiful rose, hope it made you smile my lovely. I just wanted to pop on and say a huge thank-you for the lovely comments on my page. I truly appreciate it. What a journey your class is taking me on - with your and my sister's (Karen at Karen's Carry Ons) help and encouragement I am starting to feel a lot happier letting go and feeling more free in expressing myself through art. Lol, to cut a very long story short, after many difficult years art and creativity of any kind has started to become incredibly therapeutic and important to me. Long may the journey be and my aim is to learn as much as possible and have lots of fun along the way.
I love your references to yourself as the 'Queen of Free', I am well with you on that one honey, with 2 young children to prioritise I need to keep my crafting budget as low as humanly possible so am always on the look out for free (or as near as possible) crafting materials. Charity shops have to be my favourite haunt ha ha! (ooh, apologies for long post, sorry)
Many hugs x x

Love the gorgeous rose, your tea looks so pretty too :)
I think my roses made it through winter, but they just have leaves yet!
But, it's still nice to sit outside with a cuppa :)
