Tea Strainer, Crocus and Skeleton Hydrangea

16 Feb

In our bid to use less plastic and discovering that most tea bags have plastic in them, we have bought tea leaves and brought out of retirement, the stainless steel tea strainer given to us as a Wedding present in 1967 by my Headteacher, Miss Cobley. I can’t imagine many Headteachers buying their pupils wedding presents these days.

Just look inside this glossy purple Crocus! Isn’t it beautiful?

Our walk took us around the gardens of Burncoose Nursery this afternoon. The Camellias are blooming and the Hydrangeas looking lovely and delicate with their skeleton petals.

    Never realised T-Bags had plastic in. Something to share with my mob. We usually use loose tea but always have a small packet of T Bags on stand-by.
    We have a glass teapot with a strainer that sits inside. Saves having to worry about using a strainer over each cup.

      Hips, replaced in 2014 and 2015 are amazing and ankles, newly injected, are brilliant. I am so hoping this is long term and I don’t have to have replacement ankles, possible but a long recovery and not always successful so ……
      Thank you very much for asking.🙂
