TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY




Welcome to Tea in the Garden on Saturday and a few quiet moments before the day begins.  As the birds come and go and the squirrels chatter on, it is a time to just pause and enjoy the early hour in the garden:









The other night I heard some noises in my garden and got up to go look out.  A large raccoon was on top of the birdfeeder and he had removed the lid.  I soon noticed two others and of course I realized that  this was a whole family looking for something to eat.  










Today I have set up a little table next to the bench under this large Colorado Blue Spruce....please help yourself!





I have taken a bit of this and that from the garden to make an arrangement....even twigs work well!



















I hope I can inspire you to find some "outdoor space" for tea!  If you have prepared a special tea on your porch, patio, sun room or garden - please join me by linking up below!



We would love to see your Tea in the Garden! Gather up a few tea dishes, a table cloth and see what you can create!

Hi Bernideen,

Your flower arrangement just stood right out - it is beautiful and I like the twigs. I hope the raccoons didn't do any damage in your garden. Your teapot is lovely and has such a wonderful shape to it.

Hello Bernideen,
it is always lovely in your garden. No wonder that even the raccons treasure this place. They have come to early for the tea time. Your tea table is a pleeasure to see, such a pretty lace tablecloth and the wonderful rose china. Thank you for having me for tea and for hosting this fun.
Best greetings, Johanna

Lovely as always! Racoons can be such pests! We even had one on a suburban neighborhood who lived in a storm drain and raided all the bird feeders at night. I love your setting and bouquet.

Hi Bernideen
I really like the handle on your teapot and the china you've chosen for tea today. Raccoons can be inquisitive in the garden as we've had our fair share of them.
Unfortunately my post didn't take part in the garden this week but the bouquet of flowers my friend brought in from her garden certainly caused some entertainment. Quite a few little red ants kept dropping from the flowers and scurrying around the table.

I like your garden bouguet...very pretty, and lots of variety! It is funny that you had raccoons visit you, because I've been having them here too, and I mentioned it in my post also! I guess it is that time of year. There are lots of critters out right now.

Your garden tea area looks like such a relaxing spot to sit and enjoy tea...maybe read a book, or talk to a friend:) You must enjoy it very much.
