FRIENDSHIP TEAPOT LIVES IN THE GARDEN



I have several Friendship Teapots...but this one lives in the Garden.  It is cracked and therefore - could not hold tea safely so I just leave it here on the bench as a decoration.







Last night it poured buckets in Colorado Springs......this is most shocking.  I don't recall that sound for a long time.  There were concerns about the "burn scar" on the mountain and flash floods and there were some issues on the pass going through the mountain but overall it wasn't as bad as they were concerned about.



Looking down from my upstairs - it looks like 
snow in my garden - snow or white doilies........

I love your friendship teapot in the garden, and you are right the Queen Anne's Lace does look just like little doilies floating in the air. Your garden is so pretty, I am sitting on that bench next to the teapot with a cup of tea, enjoying your company.

Bernideen, your teapot looks right at home in your cottage garden. Love all the Queen Anne's Lace! It is such a lacy flower and I refuse to call them weeds! The Island is simply covered in them right now. A sight to behold! Thank you for joining me for tea and have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen,
this tea pot makes a nice decoration in your magic garden. And also the Queen Anne Lace intensify this impression. By the way, Queen Anne Lace is kind of wild carrot, so it is really the right choice for Mr. Rabbit's garden. I hope, the weather will not make any damage on your beautiful garden.
Best greetings, Johanna

That's a great garden ornament. I have plants in some of my unuseable teapots, and some on a high shelf in my kitchen. About the painting...not sure which one you mean. The dining room, library and drawing room at Highclere were used for Downton and the art work was just left there except for a few paintings that were out of period from what I understand. But not sure which painting you mean.

Perfect place for your friendship teapot!

It would be a great silk floral arrangement container as well - or put glue on bottom and a little tray then use as a planter or a nice succulent planter as well!

Visits to your pretty garden always make me so happy!

Last week or so heard a very strange noise that frightened me. The kitty and I jumped and looked around. Then I looked out at the patio door and it was rain hitting the glass! It's funny how we forget things like that.

Your garden is looking lovely with all your Queen Anne's Lace!!♥♫

Our roadsides and highways are covered with Queen Annes Lace and so pretty along with Blue Bells (I think that's what you call them, I picked some last week and they died right away), Your garden is so pretty with them and I really like the teapot sitting there, it does look right at home. I hate chipped and cracked dishes and hubby broke a lid on a teapot last week and another I got stuck with from an auction. Have to think on how I can work them out there. Thank you for great ides...

I love your idea of using cracked teawares in the garden! Perfect!
