I have gathered some of my roses to enjoy with our tea.
My roses are not the most exotic in the garden but their scent is reminiscent of the wild roses that grow freely along the sea shore here on the island. Their scent is quite intoxicating and I love how they waft their fragrance through a room.

We had a wonderful visit with our son who has spent the last three years in Illinois completing a postdoc. In a couple of weeks he will be moving across the country to another state for a two year postdoc position. After that he will apply for tenure. Many folks have no idea how many years of study and research it takes to become a full-fledged Math professor; more than an MD actually. But he's almost there and we are so proud of his accomplishments!
I love arranging my old-fashioned roses in a canning jar.
On Wednesday, we Canadians will celebrate Canada Day and my American friends will celebrate the 4th of July on the weekend.

I thought red and white would be appropriate for Tea Time today.
I am using my Burleigh Felicity and Mason's Vista teacups. Both teacups are made in England.
I liked the tea so well that I brought some home with me. It is Tea Hill Strawberry and it is delicious! A loose leaf Ceylon black tea with blackberry and strawberry.
I also got a new teacup there but I will share that another day.
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you didn't mind my long post.
Please join me by linking up your tea/coffee/chocolate/iced tea/lemonade things, tea time recipes, or a trip to a Tea Room. We tea ladies enjoy all of those things. Wishing you all a delightful day and have a lovely and safe holiday this coming week.
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayward sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am also linking up to these wonderful parties ~
