TEA IN THE GARDEN









Welcome to Tea In The Garden and I invite you to join me for a few peaceful and quiet moments.  NO TALKING ALLOWED today....just solitude and the sound of the birds flying in and out of the garden looking for food.....



I have asked Mr. Jeremy Fisher to please just whisper "if he must" as he so likes to chatter on....





Do pour yourself a cup of tea and relax a bit!




Much hotter today - the last day of spring - we have been having temps in the 90's which is unusual so early in Colorado!  The sky has smoke rolling across the mountains from those terrible wildfires.







Under this tree it is still dark in the early morning.....












If you have put together a tea in your garden, porch, patio or sun room ....please link below and join in the fun.  Summer passes so quickly - let us savor every moment we can.  


I also love linking to two friends:  Kathy at A Delightsome Life and 
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage

Good afternoon Bernideen,
Your tea table is just lovely. The soft pink roses and ivy on your pretty china remind me of a perfect Summer day! Such a lovely set! Thank you for sharing and coming to my party. Hope you have a delightful Summer, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Beautiful flowers in the arrangement. We've even had the smoke and haze out here on the eastern plains from the fire west of Fort Collins. My mom lives 20 miles east of FC and says she hasn't seen blue skies since the fire started. It is so sad. Hope the firefighters can slow it down.♥♫

Your tea setting is gorgeous! It looks so nice and cool under the shade of the tree. I would love to sit with you and enjoy a cup of tea in your beautiful china!

Your post is lovely, Bernideen - and I adore your china set - it belongs outside for a garden tea for sure!

So beautiful!

The garden is a joy to hot days have a place with shade. My morning tea I take always in a place in the shade. To sit and listen and watch everything that happens in the garden is meditative and relaxing. I wish you a great week! Zinnia

Hi Bernideen,
what a gorgeous flower bouquet have you arranged. It looks like an old master painting. I guess, those wonderful flowers are from your garden. Mr. Fisher smiles because he know that his garden is so beautiful. And I am trilled with your china pattern - Ivy and Roses, never seen before. Thank you for sharing your wonderful garden tea and for hosting this event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello Bernideen
Such a pretty table and bouquet of flowers. When it's not raining here, it's over 30 degrees C so no photos in the garden. Your little spot always looks so cool and cozy.

Hi Bernideen! Thank-you for hosting this pretty tea party! I have really enjoyed the colors of your flowers in your garden this spring. The blues and pinks are so lovely together. Your tablecloths are beautiful! I love your darling rose & ivy china. Denise

Ann said...

Hello, Bernideen! Just stopped by to say 'hi' and have a cuppa tea, too! Mine was taken on my front porch...I decided to get a bit patriotic, too. I always adore all your beautiful flowers in your garden!! Mine have struggled, with the high heat and humidity and watering daily has been a requirement. I hope you are all safe and sound, as I read about the fires you mentioned. Blessings!
