It’s raining all this weekend. I thought about sharing rain pictures, but found out that it’s not so easy to photograph rain. But rain makes me want to curl up somewhere cozy and drink tea, so I thought I’d share tea pictures–particularly fun tea pictures, from my London trip.
This is the Orangerie in Kensington Gardens. If you’re ever there, it’s off the Broad Walk near Kensington Palace. They’re known for their excellent afternoon teas–two different friends who had lived in London recommended them to me!
This was my experience of tea–not actually the fancy version, which they serve on a pretty tiered tray and has cakes and sandwiches and enormous amounts of food. But I wasn’t that hungry and they kindly let me just have very tasty tea and scones, even though the option wasn’t on the menu.
This is the view from the Orangerie’s patio. Somewhere beyond that path is Kensington Palace.
It’s a beautiful place–and not as busy Sunday mornings as it is for afternoon tea. If you’re in Kensington Gardens (where you MUST go if you have any interest in Peter Pan), then the Orangerie is an excellent place for a very charming breakfast or tea!
