TEA AT THE GARDEN BENCH



This morning was a perfect time to see how things were coming along in the garden....and take a moment to share tea with you on my garden bench...



We are having the most beautiful weather in the 80's and things are beginning to bloom...


I have a huge old  teapot (really a coffee pot) full of tea...the lid really isn't original but who cares?




Today I am linking to the Rose Chintz Cottage so please visit her! I had trouble earlier trying to post so I am a little late....I am also linking to Kathy at A Delightsome Life





Our state flower in Colorado is the Columbine.....this is their season and they grow wild here....





I hope you take time to enjoy summer. If you live where there are no tornadoes, flooding or fires now - you are blessed!  I am praying for those folks!






















I hope you have a lovely day....

The garden is coming along beautifully! I love columbines...they grew profusely where we lived in the mountains in NE California by Mt. Lassen Volcanic Nat'l Park. Didn't know they were the state flower.
Lovely!

What a lovely garden, and a lovely setting for tea. You mentioned the Poppin' Pie stores in Des Moines. There are a couple left but now they are called "Baker's Square." They still have a lot of pie selections.
Have a wonderful week, my friend!
Blessings, Beth

Hi Bernideen
I would love to relax in the garden over tea with you.
We've not had rain for 2 days now so maybe I can set tea in my own garden again.
