After too long a time in hot and sultry central London, I spent an indulgent hour in Ladurée Covent Garden with Natasha to recover. This was the perfect rest stop with iced mint tea for two and stunning Rose flavoured macarons filled with lychee cream, embellished with fresh raspberries and rose petals.Laduree cake shop LondonI just adore the way the sunlight shines in from the roof terrace and all the classic and dainty decor in this tea salon, even the sugar sachets are exquisite.   Laduree cake shop Londonpink roses in bloomBefore I get an early night – a little more pink loveliness from a visit to Rye yesterday. The sun was out and shining through these pale pink petals so beautifully, I knew I had to capture it and save it for a rainy day. Who knew I would need them so soon!
