TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY

I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE JOINED ME FOR TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY.....I thought we would take a few moments and relax in the garden....









I have set up a little table for tea and thought I would look up the meaning of a few of my flowers this morning. 






 Don't you love the Language of Flowers? I also am inspired to drop a few notes to friends and use my little notecards of teacups and teapots. Some little friends have joined me here in the garden as well!












We have been so anxious for warm weather.  Believe it or not, the ski slopes are open in Aspen this weekend because of the snow!













Please pour yourself a cup of  rose petal tea....
















The smaller "reproduction" book is now out of print....I sold it years ago in my shop and always hoped they would reprint it.  I have spoken with several ladies who have an original one!













I have one lonely daffodil still blooming and a few tulips here and there....but these have almost passed....I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with memories....


I have posted one day early but I am happy to have other blogging friends who are preparing a special post for you on Saturday ....PLEASE VISIT THEM:

Martha in England at Lines from Linderhof
Johanna in Germany at Silber + Rosen
Trish from Sweetology 101

If I haven't heard from you and you plan to post - please leave me a note to add you!


I also love participating in La Bella Vita

Thank you for inviting me to tea Bernideen. It is all so lovely. Rose Petal tea, I love it. My tea party is now posted - it took a little while (slow computer!). Come on over! Jo

Hi Bernideen,

Good morning Bernideen,
Your garden tea is just lovely! Love the furry little friend you have there. Your garden looks very inviting and the door is a lovely touch. I do love the blue bird-inspired teapot!
I've lost almost all of my tulips to the nasty crows and the weather hasn't allowed Hubby to get out and do much with our garden lately.
I have been having so many problems with Blogger this past week that I haven't been able to do much with my blog. It's better today. It took some doing but it is almost back to normal.
Thank you for your most delightful post. I hope I can join you again soon. Enjoy your day.

Blessings,
Sandi
