I bought these macarons as a little post house-cleaning treat, and while normally I’d make myself coffee to have with them, it is so hot here at the moment that jasmine tea felt like the perfect alternative. It’s a bonus that my neigbour’s jasmine is in full, fragrant bloom and trails over our communal fence. I love how the flowers echo the pattern on my tea cup and plate.

Five Minutes of Random (the #RegularRandom challenge) is hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist. 

If you’d like to join in:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post
  • have fun!

  1. Beautiful and delicious! Perfect combination, Su! Having some problems with my stomach and thus having to retain from coffee I totally get the tea at the moment 😂 At least I’m allowed hot chocolate which is also very yummy. And after a couple of days the caffeine craving even stopped!
    Love the idea of treating yourself after the cleaning, I shall do this too from now on! 😁 xxxxxxx
