Over England's green & pleasant land lie many tea rooms & it's my ambition to visit as many as I can in my lifetime. I adore them & I seem to have passed this love on to Lucy & Alice who will endure one of my treasure hunting trips if there is a possibility that we may stop for tea. Everyone should stop for tea, it should be made law..
De Gray's are Ludlow's finest tea rooms, the building dates back to 1570. It was here that I managed to entice the whole family, including my Auntie Madelyn (of that beautiful house) for tea. Infact the afternoon turned into an etiquette lesson on how to use tea strainers to how to eat a scone correctly.
We have had a lovely time in Ludlow but my Oxford trip with my father has been postponed. I have done well with my hunting & gathering and have arrived home with many goodies. I'm just waiting for a bright day to photograph them. Thank you for all your blog birthday wishes they were a joy to read. It was Alfie's first trip to Ludlow (Posy is a pro) and we were worried how he would cope with the journey and a new house. He was perfect! I've also have a confession to make...I have started (2 weeks ago) to crochet a granny blanket (I am desperate for the green Cath Kidston blanket. Desperate, but unable to afford £160!) which means I have temporarily shelved my hexagon blanket. I'll post that soon too.
I'll leave you with a picture of my poor, long, suffering family trying not to notice their annoying mother, who with her camera, kept drawing unwanted attention to our table.
