Bettys of Yorkshire
Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year. I know that my friends in the United Kingdom are probably lamenting the near-future passing of long summer days, but I get giddy when the first cool breezes blow in. I suppose this comes from growing up in Texas, where the summers drag on and on, and we all eagerly await the first Nor'easter.
I have no idea how I will feel about all the seasonal changes now that I am in Colorado! We are much closer to those cold fronts that blow out of Canada, don't cha know! This will be the first autumn that I am at my new home in Loveland, CO.
Today, I received an email from Bettys, a Yorkshire-based tea-cake-biscuit-sweet-pudding purveyor, in operation since 1919. I love some of the Taylors of Harrogate teas that you can buy at Bettys. If you happen to be in the Yorkshire area, you can have an afternoon tea at Bettys. The photo above, of this scrumptious autumn spread, just makes me want to be in Yorkshire, right this minute, having tea.
