Under the Weather

Minnie Bannister: "Yes, yes, what a nice summer evening, typical english weather."
Henry Crun: "Mnk yes, the rain is lovely and warm. Minnie ?
Minnie: "Yes?"
Henry: "I think I'll take one of my sou'westers off..."
Minnie: " Oh, you devil you!"

This is the view from my allotment today. I dug the last of the charlotte potatoes and planted out (better late than never) young florence fennel. But really it's a day for staying in and making pots and pots of tea. And now that I've seen 'Tea Making Tips' (flagged up by our friend Mike @ Articles & Texticles), "every cup will be a cup that cheers!"

Not my forum, but thanks anyhow, cochin!
You might like to double check your spelling of our hostess's name:- Miss Hathorn likes to run a tight ship, y' know! It's Hath, not Haw.

Damn! I've forgotten the six secrets now. I'd better go and watch that film again.....
Ah yes... "A tea leaf is a delicate and sensitive plant, therefore it must be stored correctly"....

Oops! very sorry - I've corrected that on the link on my blog. Thank you for letting me know. That's the problem with blogging before I've had my 2nd cuppa of the day!!!

That tea expert chappy was quite scary!
