The Farmhouse Table

“Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most of every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.”
~J. Jonker, Amsterdam, 1670

You just can’t beat a country wooden farmhouse table, there’s always time for tea and there’s always room for cake! This photo was an out-take from when I was documenting a farming photographic series last year. I love the stillness and light to this image, its like a frozen piece of time where all the farming hustle and bustle is going on all around me but the table stays in place and feels peaceful, yet will be packed with the kids and workers come tea time…’make us a brew’ ‘Put kettle on’ etc…!
