Tearooms with gardens make a wonderful outing. So go ahead, indulge yourself and venture forth!
It’s mid-August … and the weather continues to be warm and sunny, at least in our little corner of the world (Southern Ontario, Canada).
So we’re celebrating the good weather by taking tea in the garden – ours, or at one of the many tearooms with lovely gardens. Here are a few tearooms which have come to our attention through friends and family.
If you have a favourite tearoom in your corner of the world, please let us know. Tearooms with gardens make a wonderful outing. So go ahead, indulge yourself and venture forth!
