It seems no matter what the season I take
pleasure in taking a little break with a good
cup of tea but there does seem to be more
time to enjoy these tea times in winter by the

They go nicely with the apricot roses.
I am happy to have these roses to enjoy while

some time soon to go through my favorite garden rose
photos and I can share them with you as well.

I hope you had a lovely weekend.
We had some fun family events including
a lovely birthday lunch for my sister in law
followed by a horse and sleigh ride .
However, I did take time out to do
a few soft and romantic photo shoots.
I love the soft peach/pink vintage
