following on from yesterday

not much happening today in Woodford.. the day was chilly ~ but a blue sky..
so I thought I would share some photos I took at the place where we had afternoon tea yesterday..
it was an old stone inn.. called the Black Swan.. gorgeously decorated with old bits..
some things that caught my eye:

this was an old wooden table that had a flour drawer underneath.. I love the chipped green paint.. with the scrubbed pine top.

mirrors always catch my eye..

the big branch looked brilliant surrounded by old bits of silver..

and like i said.. it was afternoon tea.. the cakes were all home-made.. so much to choose from. I was heard at one stage saying ' I will have one of everything'.. but of course, common sense won.. and I chose a coffee tart.. it was deliciously sinful. dutch husband shared with me and our friends each had a white chocolate cheese cake. i tasted it and it was a moment of absolutely pure pleasure.

just wondering if you would like me to take you for a walk around my vegie garden? video it and a commentary just like in my chook house?
hope your Monday is as glorious as mine!
