Sweet Blessings to you!
A Tea Party in the Garden is a neat thing to do and to know that so early on it was practiced.

Hello bernideen,
I didn't knew that. Oh, I have to learn a lot of things about tea. But I love tea. Thank you for this interesting quote and the beautiful vignette.
Best Greetings, Johanna

That's a sweet cup and saucer and I love the bird box. There are so many wonderful gardens for tea in the UK but there seem to be more and more here in the US. Wonderful!
