Breakfast by the Fountain

This morning, I decided to drink my coffee out on the back porch. The temp. in the morning is cooler now and really pleasant.
 I had a pound cake topped with Mayhaw jelly with my coffee.
 For my tea cup, I used this English china set by Aynsley. It is marked C 2818.
 This mercury silver candelier is right above the table. The plaque says "Love grows here. You reap what you sow"
The coffee/teapot is a Bavarian Tirschenreuth china. I do not know the pattern name but at the bottom, it is marked 33012. I like the Fall colors of the pot.
 Love the sound of the trickling water coming from the fountain.

 It was really relaxing out there this morning.

 Barnardaud Limoges dessert plate for my pound cake.
This is the first time I used this, usually they are only displayed in the dining room corner china cabinet.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you so much to the hostesses. I always appreciate your parties.

What a lovely tea, Christine! Everything looks wonderful and most suitable for the season. I have never tasted that kind of jelly but it sure looks tasty! Your teacup is beautiful; love the shape and florals on it. Thanks so much for sharing and for joining me for tea today. Happy Autumn!

I adore your coffee/teapot. I have never heard of mayhaw jelly; it must be a southern specialty. You are a fabulous tablescaper, whether it be dinner for 8, or tea by the fountain for one. Lovely!!!

I love how you take time to sit and have tea. I've been on my computer since 7am. I'm doing something wrong here! The setting is beautiful.

You made the simplest of pleasures into a special occasion using those lovely pieces of china, Christine. You had me intrigued with the mention of mayhaw jelly so I looked it up. I've never tasted Hawthorne berries. This is certainly not available up here! The south has some fun and interesting products. :-)

Mayhaw Jelly sounds intriguing Christine...
I must do a little research on it ( ha Ha)...Your table scape looks so inviting and the fountain sounds so relaxing ...H-m-m-m-m ...Makes me want to join you ... maybe take a plunge into the pool....

You always display such beautiful china...already the day has begun with such elegance and charm... Have a blessed day ...Hugs
