Time for tea...
In a blog written by a foreigner in the UK, sooner or later the topic of tea must emerge. This is, after all, the tea nation of all tea nations. The fact that it took my partner a year and a half into our relationship to allow me to make him a cup of tea and another year to admit that I actually made a decent 'cuppa', despite being foreign - well that says it all, does it not?

Tea rooms are aplenty and this is one of my favourites, the Tea Rooms and Gardens in the neighbouring village of Lacock. Part of the building dates back to the 13th century, it hosts a classic huge dresser overflowing with floral-patterned china, and a garden that is the epitome of English cottage gardens.

Fancy a cup, anyone?

Pssst, these are not photos of a UK in bloom today, but taken last summer... We all need images of hope to take us through the cold and the wet... These are some of mine.
