I love pansies -- alas, I come home to hardly any -- our heat did them in. No candied pansies for this year!!!!

I will be participating in Saturday Tea in the Garden.

Your flower photos are lovely, Bernideen! Thanks for sharing them today. You asked how old my garden is. The cottage garden is 7 years old. We also did an expansion just a year ago - the hubby wants to get rid of more grass, to = less mowing!
Blessings, Beth

Hi Bernideen,

Gorgeous Pansies! Your colder climate does produce more brilliant colors in flowers! Love your garden tea display too.

Your flowers look so fresh and lovely...pansies and foxglove. Sigh.
Our's have "burned" up..considering our temps have been running in the 100 degree catagorys already.
I've pulled out my sad Spring flowers (which were dried up and dead) and replaced them with some hardy summer flowers in our flower beds.
It feel's like late summer here. Yet date wise, that won't happen until the 21st of this month!!!
Enjoy your garden tea...I have a busy, busy, week ahead so I won't be able to participate..but I will enjoy watching.
Be blessed, Joyce
