TEA IN THE GARDEN WITH THE BIRDS



This morning I set up Tea In The Garden- with the birds - that is, with my "birds" teapot.  Thank you for joining me today. Please pour yourself a cup of tea and sit on my old bench....rest a spell and enjoy the clean mountain air.










Our temps have been going down into the 50's at night and the garden is starting the closing down aspect.  Only a few roses are blooming but as you can see I still have plenty of Queen's Anne's Lace.





I'm not really a blue person but for today I am having fun with these pieces! DO YOU have something to share about tea or gardening?  If so, please link below and of course I love it when someone shares TEA IN THEIR GARDEN!
















My friend had Breast Cancer surgery yesterday so the bouquet will be going to her.













Soon we will be pulling out all our fall things - I see some bloggers already have.  I usually do mine changes around labor day.  Our area must have substantial snow this winter or we are going to be on watering restrictions next summer.







Please link below to share something about tea..........I am also linking to Sandi at Tea Time Tuesday and also Kathy at Home and Garden Thursday and French Country Cottage.

Dear Bernideen,
your birds tea set is sooooo cute. I really love this Chintz pattern and it is perfect for every season. You have set such a lovely tea scene and your bouquet is lovely, too. Its a loving idea to spend it your friend. She will be pleased. Its so good to have caring friends when one has to manage such health problems. I wish her the very best for soon recovery. Thank you for sharing.
Best greetings, Johanna

I *love love love* that blue bird teapot and gorgeous teacups and saucers!

I am so sorry about your friend- your lovely bouquet will cheer her up big time, you are so thoughtful.

Thank you for hosting, glad it finally cooled down enough to do something again outside.

Todays tea is so lovely. All the soft colors go together so beautifully. Love how you set the tea table next to the cute birdhouse! Your tablecloth is lovely and the teapot is so appropriate for the outdoors. You are so special giving away your beautiful bouquets. Thank you for hosting your tea party every week.

Your blue teaware is very pretty and so is the green birdhouse. The garden is still looking lovely, even though it is closing down.

Sounds odd to wish you lots of snow this winter (guess that comes from living in Georgia), but it's better than watering restrictions next summer. :-)

Always so cozy looking in your garden Bernideen and your Queen Anne's Lace is non-stop blooming! Ours is finished so I'm really enjoying yours.

Hi Bernideen,
I love your tea with the birds! Your garden is so beautiful and the bouquet for your friend is very lovely. I also want to wish her the very best for soon recovery. My mother just went through that situation, and thanks to our merciful Lord she is fine now.
Thank you for your invitation and for hosting!
Blessings,
