Afternoon tea





We enjoyed a pleasant afternoon tea in the garden.  Scones, jam and cream served with tea is known as Devonshire Tea in Australia and is a popular choice in tourist cafes.

  4. Dear Joan,

    Sorry to intrude on your blog. I wanted to make sure that you and your followers are aware of the highway issue that's about to affect the whole of the blue mountains.

    You might have seen our ad in the Blue Mountains Gazette.

    saveourmountains.org.au

    B-double trucks and pedestrian crossings don't mix.

    The RTA's proposed upgrade of the Great Western Highway between Mt Victoria and Lithgow shows the Australian and NSW governments intend to turn the highway, with its nearly 40 different speed zones, 10 school zones, 21 sets of traffic lights and 17 villages, into a road freight corridor for 25+ metre B-double trucks.

    Act now! Help us stop the highway from becoming a B-double freight corridor before it's too late. Deadline for submissions is 23 Nov!

    Please take 2 minutes to register your protest now at saveourmountains.org.au

  5. It is rather interesting for me to read this post. Thank author for it. I like such themes and everything that is connected to them. I would like to read more on that blog soon.

  6. Is that clotted cream? I don't think I've ever had any but have heard a lot about it. It all looks yummy, three of my favorite major food groups.

  7. Hi AB, yes it is very English but I believe it is eaten with clotted cream over there.

    Paula, this is just extra thick cream. Clotted cream is something different (apparently taken from heated unhomogenised milk and has a yellowish crust). I've never seen it.

    Everybody else, sorry it's all gone but if you want to visit the mountains just let me know and I'll whip up a batch of scones.
