HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW? WELL......INDOORS BY THE CHANDELIER!


Sunday afternoon I really lost it - I joined the masses enjoying an absolutely fabulous weather day buying flowers at Home Depot.  The crowds were huge and the flowers lovely, the sun was shining and it was a time to buy - buy - buy.  The plan was to plant on Monday night.  I left work early to start the job as Monday was also beautiful.  BUT ON THE WAY HOME I HEARD THE FORECAST for Wednesday was going to be "Cold Front Coming In With Snow".
So I thought - oh boy, I don't want to put this stuff in the ground - where do we take it?








Fox gloves love chandeliers.....








I had put foil around each pot because I didn't want stains on my tablecloths, etc.






















After all this work - now it is time for a cup of tea and after all it is Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage on Prince Edward Island

Hello Bernideen,
Your flowers actually look very pretty in the center of your table! I love your shots with the chandelier and foxgloves; lovely! Your tea table always looks wonderful and I love those tea cups! Thanks for sharing.

How stunning! I love your indoor garden! And I am very partial to foxgloves! Love the large size of the centerpiece --- so lovely!

Wow! This is extraordinary! What a wonderful way to bring indoors two beautiful things - a lovely tea party and a lush garden! Gorgeous flowers - adore foxgloves - I only had one to survive this past winter! Wish I had more - they are some of the flowers that speak to me of Cottage Gardens! Thank you for sharing this with A Return to Loveliness,
God Bless,
Kathy

HOW LOVELY, AND A FINE IDEA BRINGING YOUR GARDEN INSIDE, ESPECIALLY WITH YOUR CHANGE IN THE WEATHER. YOUR TABLE LOOKS SO NICE, I THINK
ITS A GREAT IDEA. I LOVE YOUR FOXGLOVES, MAYBE THEY'LL GET AS TALL AS TASHA'S. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY, AND ENJOY YOUR CUP OF TEA. RIZZI

Those foxgloves are gorgeous! And columbine a close second. All the flowers made a lovely centerpiece. Snow danger will be past soon, I hope! I had to bring flowers inside last week, too - overnight, anyway.

What a grand idea to beautify the inside until the plants can go out. Everything looks lovely.
