TEA IN THE GARDEN WITH MISS TABITHA AND MR. JEREMY FISHER



Welcome to Tea In The Garden which will take place every Wednesday for the spring -summer and into the fall months:






This morning I was out in my garden early.  Last week I had typed that "as the sun rose from the west" and a dear lady corrected me. Sometimes I need help!  Thank you dear lady!   Actually, I fly by the seat of my pants and rush so fast to get things done..............I have some "ooops" moments here and there. 












This is my 4th summer to have a garden in my back yard. I had lots of gardens at other homes I lived in but (except for a few plants here and there)  not here until I began to dig up the back yard 4 years ago.  Did you know it takes time for gardens to mature and grow - just like people.  I think this summer things should be nice and blooming soon.  









Last summer I had Tea in the Garden on Saturday but I found so many bloggers do other things on the weekends so I moved it to Wednesdays.








Pour yourself a cup of tea and relax for a few moments!  My garden is actually ahead of schedule this year because I WATERED this winter more than in the past. 










I hope you can join me every Wednesday for Tea in the Garden and be sure to sign up and enter my blog Giveaway Drawing.  The drawing will be June 10th for over $200.00 worth of teatime items!











Some dear little robins have nested near my front door - this is what you do when the BIRDHOUSE is too small:

Oh so beautiful, Bernideen!

I didn't realize that Tea in the Garden would be each week - sorry I have no ability to linky one today!

Yours is lovely, and so is your garden. How I would adore sipping tea with you in that gorgeous space with such a pretty tablescape and china!

Hello Bernideen,
What a charming picture that robin's nest built by the birdhouse makes; precious!
Your garden looks so inviting! Mine has yet to break forth into blooms, therefore I won't be sharing any tea in the garden for a while. All my teas will have to remain indoors for the time being as we are also getting a week of rain.
Thank you for sharing yours. It gives me something to look forward to in my own.

Blessings,
Sandi

Fantastic that you are only in four years created such a wonderful garden. I believe God wants us all to have access to a garden. Morning Prayer, I have often in my wicker chair in the garden. The door you have in your garden is as smart as a room divider. I wish you a nice day! Zinnia

Hello Bernideen
We won't be in our garden for tea yet, we've been having rain every day. Your yard is captivating with the door all decorated and the most luscious strawberries I've seen in a long time.
Hopefully by next week I can get outside and that it will be warmer by then too.

Hello Bernideen,
I've enjoyed visiting your beautiful garden with Miss Tabitha and Jermeny Fisher! You have many lovely plants blooming which complement your lovely tea. I had a robin do the exact same thing with the bird nest. Wish I would have taken a picture of it.
Hopefully it won't be long and I can join you in the garden with some of my teas.
Have a great week
Nancy

This is another lovely Tea In The Garden post. I always enjoy seeing your pretty china and linens in the garden tablescape.

Hi Bernideen,
I am so in awe with your pretty double Japan Anemones. They look like roses! And I spied out your extraordinary napkin holder. Oh, how I like this type of doilies. That looks so clean and fresh and inviting. And your china makes me always speachless. Thank you for this wonderful garden tea.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Bernideen,
Your garden is lovely and you are right it does take time for a garden to settle in so each year is better then the last! I love the door and what fun to watch the birds grow in the nest.
Thank you for hosting,

Carolyn

Everything looks so nice for early spring! I'm impressed. I love your door in the garden. Do you leave it out all year?
I'd love to have tea in your garden.
