That hedge you see across the road..right after is is the lane one of our daughter's lives on:)
Let's have a tea pause
I have another post ready in the wings re Paris..but I want to just think about the gardens for a minute..
it took an afternoon to spit and polish them up..and the weather has been so bright ..I don't want to omit to value the gardens..they are here for such a short time..and if we had not been to Paris..they are what Iwould be talking about♥
By the end of my Paris posts..many pretties will have bloomed and left..
I am shamelessly showing off my new teas.
I love the tea from this company..I have mentioned them before..Teavivre..while away..one of our daughter's ..Caroline picked up the mail for us..
A lovely little brown box..with their pretty large pouch filled with those cute cute mini pouches..had arrived for me during my absence.
That afternoon I trimmed and primped..I made a pot of tea..green tea..Xin Yang Mao Jian Green Tea.. and put it in a tumbler..and brought it outside..a little treat in between gardens.
So sweet of that company to think about sending me some.
I am a tea lover.
Whie we were in Paris..a storefront featured packaged Eiffel Tower cookies..I have had the cutter for many years..a gift from a friend..
I decided to make some to give to the Littles when they leave Sat..after our Father's Day dinner here..to thank them for their treats to us..the drawings..the send off..and the welcome home..
I used this recipe..
and they're good..but I was looking for exactly Bonne Maman taste..I have made so many sablés..galettes..
I just keep trying for my absolute favorite one..I have come sooo close..just not there yet...this one..not quite sure differentaited it from the taste I crave..
beautiful blog and great recipes she has:)
The Jack -in-the Pulpits are multiplying every year..I love the way they look and catch the light~
