TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY

This morning there were just a few minutes to walk about the garden and have a cup of tea.......perhaps you will have a busy day too!  Maybe you will be going to your first of the season Farmer's Market like we have in Old Colorado City or spending the day working in the yard or shopping? I hope you have a lovely weekend!










Whatever you do today - enjoy this day!  Now that summer is almost here - it will go so fast.  I am determined to enjoy it.  Many of the plants in my yard are in the green phase now and the blooms are yet to come. I saw on a blog last year where a comment was made that the person's garden was 10 years old.  I think I realize now what a difference that would be in maturity of the plants. This part of my garden is only 3 years old and the other side is 2 years old.  We used to have a doggy who would have done alot of damage here chasing the squirrels away!  Now that he is gone, gardening has replaced him.





That's Mr. Jeremy Fisher peeking out from behind the tea table....







Miss Tabitha suggested he be on his best behavior!








I decided to make some Strawberry Tea to go in my Chintz Old Country Roses Teapot...












Some blogging friends have joined me today by celebrating tea in their own gardens, patios, sun porches and special garden spots!  If you have a special post about tea in your garden just join in below!

Hi Bernideen!

I do love to drop by your garden and peek at all your tea-happenings! I am soooo envious of your Old Country Roses....always one of my favorite patterns. Oh, Yum! Strawberry tea sounds wonderful today!

I hope you have a grand weekend! I will be moving more furniture and boxes. But atleast I will finally have my tea cart and LOTS of china!! :) Hope it's not too hot here.

Hugs,

Hi Bernideen
So kind of you to remind me to link with your Tea in the Garden party.
I like your tea table and envy the pretty pink foxgloves - I just planted some seedlings so should enjoy them next year.
Your tea warmer is a nice one, would go with any tea pot and looks lovely with your china today.
Thanks for hosting.

Hi Bernideen,
It looks lovely in your garden and yes I agree a garden does keep getting prettier with age-just like us!!!
I love you Old Country Rose teaset-I may have mentioned before my late Mother in Law had a very large collection of this pattern that she collected over many years,her daughter enjoys it now.

Thank you for hosting and I hope your weekend is wonderful too.

HI Bernideen, I love your Old Country Roses it's beautiful. And Strawberry Tea too? What a treat! My garden is somewhat sad this year. We've had critter issues and the neighbor's dogs digging holes under the fence and coming over! My irises are finally blooming and there are buds on the climbing rose bush that I've trained to go up the side of the deck. It's all a work in progress.

Beth said...

Your garden is lovely, Bernideen. I especially like the foxglove. Your Old Country Roses and Old Country Roses chintz teapot and cups and saucers are stunning! What an inviting tea, and the strawberry tea sounds great; in fact, I know that it is because you sent me some!!!
Hugs,
Beth
