While we were visiting Australia with my parents they got to enjoy some lovely Devonshire tea out at a small country café near the Glass House Mountains. My Aussie brother and his wife treated them to this pleasant Australian custom while we were on a sight seeing excursion.
I love the red lid on the one pot. I think that just adds a spark of nice color along with the tea tags, and it matched my mom’s outfit! :-)
The scones, cream and strawberry jam were delicious. My parents kindly shared their “extra” with us and my brother and his wife. :-) We’d all had an excellent lunch first, so they were already fairly full before the tea was served.
This photo was taken by my brother or sister-in-law. :-)
The magpies, who came to lunch in their tuxedoes, were pests and there were spray bottles on the tables to use in case they became too bold inviting themselves to lunch. They didn’t bother us, but I did get another kind of shot at one. :-)
There was also another kind of well-dressed bird in evidence.
Bird of Paradise
Before we left the kangaroos came out in a group in the mango grove below! Only one managed to get out in the sun where I could get a good shot of him.
And, I found a cotton apron there! :-) :-)
The two ladies who were running the place were very friendly, despite being very busy and warm that afternoon. This one was wearing a vintage cotton apron. Sadly, I didn’t catch her name. She was kind enough to let me take a photo for you all. :-)
