In her email today, she talks about tea and gardens.
Coffee grounds and tea leaves are good for compost.
If you don't have a compost pile, she suggests adding coffee or tea around
your flowers for extra fertilizer ... something I've done for years.
Also, some bugs (like ants) don't like coffee!
(Perhaps they don't like tea either!)
This teapot makes me smile.
It is from East Hampton and their Chinatown collection.
Unfortunately, the mugs that went with the teapot were sold out,
but my Fiesta mugs in all their assorted colors work well.
The wonderful tea towel is from Anthropologie.
Tea tempers the spirits and harmonizes the mind,
dispels lassitude and relieves fatigue,
awakens thought and prevents drowsiness,
lightens or refreshes the body,
and clears the perceptive faculties.
There are so many tea parties in the blogging world.
These are just a few.
