Tea and friendship Tuesday's..........

Welcome to Tea and friendship Tuesday's hosted by Charli and Me. A fun post that can be filled with recipes, teapots, teacups, tablescapes, stories, poems, quotes, and interesting facts related to tea, friendship, or both. A post to share anything you would like with a friend! If you would like to join me, just grab a button, write a post, and then leave a comment here so my friends and I can pop over for a visit. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy my post......

Good morning everyone. I'm so glad you decided to stop by. Would you like to see where we have been spending most of our time? We have been out in our yard where everyday a new flower seems to bloom........

I especially love my Lillie's. My hubby laughs because I get so excited when a new one
blooms. Charli loves to
sniff them. She sort of pokes them with her little snoot....

Today I'm serving espresso and biscotti. I sorry I didn't have time to bake but I have a wonderful bakery in my area that makes the most delicious biscotti I've ever tasted. The espresso is dark and rich in flavor. Can you smell the wonderful aroma? Biscotti is just wonderful dipped in espresso. If you don't like your espresso black we can have espresso con panne, which is an espresso served with a small dollop of whipped cream. Which do you prefer?......

"I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to the earth, I know now where;
For so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in it's flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I know not where;
For, who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end.
I found again in the heart of a friend."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow-
Happy Tea and friendship Tuesday everyone!...
Charli and I hope all of you have a wonderful day ♥
With warmest regards, Carol

I'll have mine with whipped cream, thank you very much! And I love biscotti!
I also love your very pretty table setting, it looks so elegant sitting on the doily.
I hope you don't mind but I steal a lot of your tablescape ideas!

And your flowers look beautiful! Will we be enjoying our expresso out there?

Nice post!

I could really really use a cup of that expresso this morning. We have had so much rain that it makes for sleepy mornings and lazy days. Your flowers are lovely.

Happy Tea and friendship tuesday.


Just a little something from Judy said...

Reasons "why" I enjoy visiting your blog;
Your choice of music and the memories that it brings back to me.
Your beautiful photography of food and flowers.
Your glitter graphics on your side bar.
Your ability to write, and the poems you share.
And last, but not least...your precious little Charli.

Hi, Carol... I loved visiting with you today! Thanks for the biscotti, the coffee, the flowers, and the poem! I'm still dealing with workmen, and I'm not sure when I will get back to my regular blogging schedule. But I wanted to be sure and drop by to see you and say, "Hello"!

Love Biscotti - and a latte please
great post!
I love better a biscotti and a latte with girlfriend munching and sipping on the same!
Although a full time working mom - I need to take more time with my friends and spend an hour sipping and chatting! Friendship with coffee is a great gift!
