It's still summertime in Texas and our weather is still hot and muggy. Raspberry pie is in order. I received a free sample of Downton Abbey, The Bates' Tea in my Republic of Tea catalogue. The tea as described in the catalogue is that of plum pudding...baked fruit and spices with vanilla in a black tea. It's very tasty! The plant in my lady head vase is called a Zamioculcas Zamiifolia...whew, that's a mouthful!!! When I bought this at the nursery, the man told me that it doesn't need a lot of light and to only water it about every two weeks. I keep it on my coffee table in a basket with some other plants, and it has done very well. I do think I'll have to move it to a larger pot soon.
I don't have a teacup with raspberries, but I thought my Strawberry Fair teacup from Johnson Brothers would fit the bill.
My son, Tim, came over this past week to celebrate his birthday. He wanted a strawberry pie, and we ate the whole pie. Here he is with his wife and daughters.
Happy Labor Day. However, Let's remember to keep those in the path of Hurricane Dorian in our prayers, and those families who lost loved ones in the Odessa, Texas shooting.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
