TIME FOR TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY!












        It's Time for TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY......








Do come enjoy some tea and wander about my 
garden this morning!  Earlier I was  peering out the door at the fog  rising above the moors.....well, not really....just remember the line from the "Secret Garden".






So I have prepared a little table for your tea pleasure!





and I have arranged a bouquet with flowers 
and herbs from the garden too!  












the little blue flowers - maybe bluebells - are wild from the Black Forest here.....















Of course, I love my collection of tea books and brought some along to show you....the Victoria Tea Books always inspired me!






I have some friends who invite you visit their blogs today and see their garden, porch, patio or sun room for tea......they will be linking below! I hope you take time to enjoy tea in your own garden!




If you have prepared a special "Tea in the Garden on Saturday" please link below:

Hi Bernideen,

As always, your tea setting in the garden is gorgeous! I adore all your pretty garden sculptures and pansies. Beautiful roses on your china.

Hello Bernideen,
thank you for hosting this delightful tea time. I love to stroll through your garden, sipping tea and talking with Mrs. Tabitha. Your china is as always outstanding. The Chintz plate is very nice and the tea cups and plates are so pretty. You know, I am so fond of rose patterns everywhere. Best greetings, Johanna

OH, HOW I MISSED HAVING TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY, WITH YOU BERNIDEEN. I AM GETTING A NEW COMPUTER, AND I HOPE IT WILL BE VERY SOON. MY OLD ONE, WORKS SOMETIMES, BUT ALWAYS GIVES ME TROUBLE. I HOPE IT GETS ME THROUGH THIS COMMENT TO YOU. I LOVE YOUR TEA IN THE GARDEN TODAY, IT IS SO LOVELY. AHHHH THE SECRET GARDEN, MY 5TH GRADE TEACHER MRS. PRICE WOULD READ A FEW PAGES TO OUR CLASS EVERYDAY AT THE END OF A SCHOOL DAY. (THAT'S OVER 60 YEARS AGO) HOW I LOVED IT. I HAVE THE BOOK, MY SISTER GAVE ME THE BOOK MANY, MANY YEARS AGO. HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, HOPE TO HAVE TEA IN MTHE GARDEN NEXT WEEK.

Very lovely setting in your garden! You have such a nice assortment of flowers for your vase and they are all so beautiful. I think your china pieces are all lovely, especially the plate with the roses.

Have a wonderful Saturday tea in the garden.

Your tea in the garden setting is lovely. What beautiful table linens and pretty china. Those Victoria books are in my tea library too, and I do enjoy them.

I love to see who is out in the gardens for tea this week. Lovely bouquet of flowers and table setting for sure.

Your garden is so lovely -- your own Secret Garden. I love the old teapot with the little girls on it. I have a similar one with a sailboat. It's hard to find the big, sturdy teapots like that. Have a wonderful day, Bernideen.

Hi Bernideen
Well, I remember to put your link in my post but seem to keep forgetting to link to your party. Maybe a sticky note will jog my memory next week. :-)
The one thing I miss about having grass is the way a nice tea setting looks placed on it.
Great capture of the mist by the fence and lovely tea in the garden as usual.

So very pretty. I love the wild bluebells. Tea in the garden sounds lovely!

You set a gorgeous table Bernideen! Such a serene setting that does make me think of Secret Garden. Your flower arrangement is beautiful as are the dishes! I hope to join in later today - working with a strange computer and programs has got me flummoxed!(how do you like that word!)
:)

Another beautiful and inspiring "tea in the garden" post! I especially love your photo with the light filtering softly from behind that tablecloth -- very Victoria, I'd say!
