My Life is really in the Garden

Enjoying and sharing the daily discoveries of the beautiful nature that surrounds me in my lovely garden and everywhere else!

Cup of Tea, Anyone?

I used to drink tons and tons of coffee … and my life used to just buzzzzzz … gradually I turned to tea.

And I went through many brands.   Red Rose.  Salada.  Twinings.  Bigelow.  All types of herbal teas.  I was just a tea nut, trying out many different brands over the years.

Then I discovered this lovely tea, at London Drugs.   It was the packaging that caught my eye, but it was the taste that drew me in.  Besides all the wonderful ethics of the company .. they are also very witty.  They are British you know.  I love buying the large boxes of this tea and have um, about 6 in the pantry right now.tues-02

Here is the   Yorkshire Tea   web site .. and be sure to click on the videos, they are amazing!!

Then someone treated me to some Irish Breakfast tea.  I hadn’t heard of it before so I just had to buy some at Thrifty Foods.  Regular and Decaf!   Good tea.

So, in the Quality Foods Flyer a few weeks ago, I notice that there is a Scottish Tea.  Good heavens, is there no end to these UK teas??  Last Saturday I went to the store and couldn’t find this in the Tea section, a young clerk (from Scotland!) helped me find this box.  And neither he nor I could figure out what “Specially Blended for Scottish Water” means.  I even asked someone in Scotland and was told the water there is the same as the water here.  So this must be a marketing ploy.    🙂  The teabags are built like a pyramid, with their tri-corners.tues-01

It almost seemed like a tempest in a teapot.  That makes no sense, but the thought popped up so I just typed it!

A group of Girl Guides were selling the cookies at the mall, so after I bought the tea, I paid for a box of cookies.  Tea and cookies!  Delicious on a Saturday afternoon and the cookies did not last long, they were so good.   I was very mature and only bought one box!tues-04

We were stopped at a traffic light and I wasn’t driving, so I swiftly took my camera out and snapped this happy photo.  Well done, hay?   Very cheerful and people were out in the fields, choosing their special pumpkin for Halloween.tues-06

And back at home, I was able to gather some gifts from the garden!!

So, fall is officially here.  The beans are still growing .. I am able to pick many of them every day and more are growing on the vines!

And such a busy time, preparing the beans for the dehydrator.   And drying the corn, fruit leather and then the green tomatoes for veggie powder mix.

Getting ready for the wintertime, for the lovely hearty soups and stews that will be so comforting on cold and rainy days.

I feel like a busy little ant!
