CELEBRATING THE QUEEN ANNE'S LACE FOR TEA TIME TUESDAY!



I was out in the garden early this morning and it seems so appropriate to celebrate the Queen Anne's lace that survived our hail storm on July 21st!   We will be getting a new roof on our house. (thankful we paid for that insurance!) My garden was rather ripped to streds but some things are coming back!


Queen Anne's Lace is viewed by some like a weed but it is my favorite flower!  I also love hydrangeas, violets and pansies....In Colorado I haven't had a great success with roses.  By the time they bloom it is July and this year moths attacked them.  Our nights are very cool here so growing slows down.




Celebrating Tea Time Tuesday will be others as well at Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations so pay a visit there for fun!






































Be sure and come back next Tuesday as I will be posting the photos from my Sunday Afternoon Garden Tea Party!

Glad to hear the good news about getting a new roof, I only hope you didn't have to pay for it out of your own pocket !
Queen Anne's Lace is one of my favorites, I love it's delicate and airy flower head.
The pansy coffee pot set is adorable, I have a tea pot that would match perfectly !

Hello Bernideen, what a lovely tea you have for us today:) We have a lot of Queen Anne's lace growing out in the nearby fields. Sad to say, I was one of those who thought it to be a weed, but I always thought it was so pretty :) Perhaps I should try to "transplant" some into my landscaping?

Thank you for the lovely tea; I've truly enjoyed my visit today :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda

I never thought of growing it in my yard but what a good idea.

The ditches and fields are full of the beautiful lacy flowers right now.

Queen Anne's lace is a favourite of mine too and I let it self seed.
I still can't decided whether or not to paint my metal tea cart - it's dark green but I so like the white of yours. You have it laid out so pretty for your tea.

Bernideen, your tea set is simply lovely; love the pansies! We have Queen Anne's Lace all along our roads here now on the Island; so pretty and delicate! I love it too! The bruchetta in your post below looks delicious! Hope you're having a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi
