Afternoon tea

I know I said yesterday that I was pretty much over yellow pea flowers. However, today’s picture is of the flowers that were together with the Matchheads I showed yesterday. The dainty blooms and soft blur of both of these shots reminds me of hand painted china, and genteel afternoon tea.

Words to walk with:
From The Book of Household Management by Mrs Beeton
“Afternoon Tea should be provided, fresh supplies, with
thin bread-and-butter, fancy pastries, cakes, etc., being
brought in as other guests arrive.”
