Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's day lovely friends. However you celebrate this day of LOVE, hope your loved ones are spoiling you. 

Well, today my daughter helped me bake a Raw Chocolate ganache cake for my darling hubby, as his sweet Valentine afternoon tea. 

I am joining Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea, Judy for Simple and Sweet Friday, Sandi for Tea Cup Tuesday , Martha for Tea Cup Tuesday

Our garden has been so generous this year, these Zinnias just keep on giving.

And the rose garden continues to impress

The table grapes are mostly ripe

A favourite on our afternoon tea spread 

An addition to my rose garden-Hybrid tea rose called Julia's rose

Freshly-picked bouquet for my Valentine's day afternoon tea, the praying mantis is for photographic purpose only

Here it is, my version of raw chocolate ganache cake 

Today, I am using my Staffordshire tea set, which was given to me by my hubby for our wedding anniversary last year.

Look at those inquisitive eyes

After I took its photos, I returned it to its home.


  1. Such fun to have a mantis on your bouquet. The chocolate cake looks delicious!

  2. Oh my what a glorious cake there. The colors on your blog are so beautiful! Loved the spread and table display! So glad you shared at Friends Sharing Tea!

  7. Hi Aida,
    Before I comment on your tea I must tell you I love the polka dot teacup in your header. It's really pretty! Your fresh bouquet is beautiful and the mantis is a fun touch. Your cake looks very decadent and would be such a treat with a cup of tea. I'm sure your hubby appreciated this treat very much. The tea set is lovely and the cake plate is so pretty. A wonderful posting! Thank you for sharing with us and joining me for Tea Time. Enjoy your beautiful weather.
