Bloggers Day Out

A part of Belton House - as the sun shone on us in the afternoon - DW and I were on a bloggers day out with Christopher (Gailsman) and Gail. We really had a good laugh together, and the banter between us was great.



One of the highlights were that Gail and I had a Belton's Cream Tea, only problem was, should we eat it the Devonshire or Cornish way,lol.Which goes on 1st - Jam or Cream?.



Now, what do you think of my Golden Trumpets here? I really got down to the job here - flat on the Tum (wonder if Christopher caught me in this position?-lol - we shall see - keep an eye on his blog -visit here = Nottingham Daily Photo. - to be continued.

Stewart, these are all magnificent! I loved 'em all and wish I could go there, too! So.... which did you do first, cream or jam? ;o)

katney said...

Yes--Jamm or cream? Inquiring minds must know.

Alwaysa good day out when bloggers meet--especially toting cameras.

First...butter, let it melt, then jam and then the cream...yummmmmm! Such a sweet memory :)
I can just imagine you taking pictures on your tum, sounds like something I would do! Haha!

oh yummy, I think I would put both jam and cream on! Is that legal? lol I so agree on your post of friends! It is what makes the world go round doesn't it...

We do have a long way to go before our daffodils get this nice. I think in a couple of weeks.

Gailsman said...

Damn, I think I missed you down on your tum. Just as well you did that before eating all that jam and cream!

Those daffodils fill me with joy. They deserve a trip down to eye-level.

And the butter and jam for that bun? Bring it on and let's not worry about which comes first!

What a wonderful photographer does to get a great shot. All of these pictures are wonderful, but I'm curious. Which won out -- the Devinshire way or the Cornish?

Betty Manousos@ CUT AND DRY said...

Your photos are drool worthy!
I love that damn Cornish cream!!

First butter then jam.

Yummy!

Dave said...

I will get to Belton house soon my friend hope you can come back for another visit. I'm sure there may be the odd photo opportunity you missed this time around. As for cream teas, jam first.

Belton looks like a great place to visit, I love the light on those daffs, well worth getting down for.

Beautiful daffodils, Stewart....

Here in the good ole USA, we put the butter (cream) on first and then add the jam....

What did you all do????
