I won't be around this coming Tuesday for tea, so I thought I'd leave a photo, just in case anyone drops by.  And right now, as I post this, I'm enjoying a cup of double bergamont, earl grey, black tea   :)

It took a rest over winter and now is covered in flowers and buds.

  Drop by Kimmies at http://artinredwagons.blogspot.com/  and check out the list of others.  Join us by simply making a comment at Kims, everyone is welcome---we all have a cup of something while visiting  :)
