Tea Cup Tuesday from England

Hello All and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday.
In case you have not seen my last post, I am in England. So I am posting this from Southampton today. I apologize for two things: One, for being late today, and two, for not really having a tea cup to show you. I have been here for 3 days now, and I have not yet found a tea cup. I did though purchase two lovely antique plates from a street fair in Winchester. Next week I will indeed have found a tea cup to share (if not more than one!). I also had a lovely tea.
Here I am with my tea cup in a truly lovely little tea room in Glastonbury.
Can you tell I haven't really slept for 3 nights now????
The tea cup was pretty, but not old at all. The tea itself was really, really good!

This little tea shop is quaint and comfortable. The begonias in the window were so beautiful, so healthy.

This is my dear friend standing in front of the tea room. We have been blessed with some really good weather so far.

I had the most delicious profiteroles with my tea! Oh yum, yum! Especially yum considering I have been off sugar for ages!

Waking up at our BandB this morning, we were greeted by the rising sun outside our window!
We could see the Tor and the remaining tower of a very old abbey as well from our bedroom window. It was a really beautiful sight!

These were on the windowsill of our bedroom. I don't have a tripod with me on this trip, so my photos are not really clear.

Thank you all so very much for stopping by!
I hope that each of you are having a very good week.
I look forward to seeing your tea cups today.
Please stop by and see Martha at Martha's Favorites.
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terry
G;ad you are enjoying the delights of England, shame you couldn't find a tea cup though!! I am just across the sea from Southampton on the Isle of Wight, funny to think we are so close at the moment when I normally read your blog knowing you are the other side of the Atlantic!
