|Tea in an English Garden
|My daffodils bloomed this week. It's a sight I look forward to all Winter because
it means that Spring can't be far away. With my daffodils in mind, I started
searching for some photos of English gardens. I'm not sure how the page
evolved into "tea in a garden," but I'm a tea drinker, so, in this case, I
was happy to go where the page led me. I have the tea and the daffodils.
All I need now are some scones and crumpets and a nice warm day.
|Come into the garden, let's have some tea and talk about happy things. -- Susan Smythe
|Would you like to begin the adventure now...or shall we have a cup of tea first?
-- Peter Pan
|He brewed his tea in a blue china pot, poured it into a chipped white cup with
forget-me-nots on the handle, and dropped in a dollop of honey and cream. He
sat in his garden, cup in hand, watching a wren build its nest. "I am," he sighed
deeply, "a most happy man." -- Ethel Pochocki
|The man breathed in the scent of the tea deeply. It brought memories
of rosebuds and mint, of sunny meadows and salty cliffs, of streams
in no hurry and the sound of bagpipes. -- Ethel Pochocki
|There is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a cup of tea.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
|There are few troubles so great or grave that can't be much
diminished by a nice cup of tea. -- Bernard-Paul Heroux
|So the small things came into their own; small acts of helping others; small ways of making
one's own life better; acts of love, acts of laughter, acts of tea. Clever people might laugh
at such simplicity, but, she asked herself, what was their solution? -- Alexander Smith
|In Ireland, you go to someone's house, and she asks if you want a cup of tea. You
say no thank you. She asks if you're sure, because she was just going to get
some for herself and it would be no trouble. Well, you say, in that case, I wouldn't
mind a spot of tea, if you're sure it's no trouble. Then you go through the whole
thing once more, until you end up in the kitchen, drinking tea and chatting. In
America, someone offers you a cup of tea and you say no thank you. And you
don't get any tea. I'll admit it's a bit cumbersome, but I like the Irish way better.
-- C. E. Murphy
|There's something in the nature of tea that leads us into a quiet contemplation of life.
-- Lin Yutang
|I'm glad I wasn't born before tea. -- Sydney Smith
|The smell of tea and buttered toast talked to him of warm kitchens on
bright, frosty mornings, cozy parlor firesides and the purring of
contented cats in a summer garden. -- Kenneth Grahame
|You can't buy happiness, but you can buy tea, and that's kind of the same thing.
