Welcome to a beautiful morning and time for "Tea In The Garden"! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and linger...

This week our temperatures have gone back to the 80's and
 are wonderful - this is Colorado as it should be.

Recently I happened upon one of those 1950's 
vintage rose tablecloths - 
similar to one I found a while back but lighter in color!

If you have to something to share about tea or gardening.......please link below and join in the fun!
Today is my 34th "Tea In The Garden" and when we get to fall I will return to "Friends Sharing Tea" each week.

I am very fond of Foxgloves - I am sure because of Tasha Tudor - of course mine are very short because I failed to water them with her "goat manure tea" as she called it!

Thanks to the many who asked about my smashed toes - I noticed yesterday that I was no longer limping so I am definitely on the mend.

I have really enjoyed my small flower garden this summer.  I will be taking this bouquet to the lady behind the greenbelt behind our house. She is being cared for now by her daughter and I hope these will bring her some cheer!

I want to especially thank you all for participating.....
I know it is work to set up Tea In Your Garden....
I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Good mornng Bernideen,
What a beautiful tea table! Love your pretty china and table coverings! Your bouquet is lovely too and I'm sure will be much appreciated by your friend.

Your tablecloth is beautiful, and so is your teapot! I admire your QA lace; the ammi majust is much shorter so plant it in the front of your garden. Have a wonderful day and thanks for sponsoring Tea in the Garden!

Always a pleasure to take a walk in your lovely garden. I love the way the sun light flows onto your table. The table setting is so pretty and goes so well with your new tablecloth.

Hi bernideen,
how wonderful is this tea table in your romantic garden. I love the pink petticoat under the tablecloth. What a feast of roses! Love the delicate china with wonderful rose decor and the outstanding shape. All is set so carefully. The Lady will be pleased with this marvellous bouquet. Your foxgloves look really very special, too. I have never seen such before. Thank you for sharing your garden tea and for hosting this wonderful event.
Best greetings, Johanna

I love your cottage garden and the Queen Anne's lace makes me swoon. Your arrangement is beautiful and I know she will love it! I may be mistaken but your pretty tablecloth looks like a Wilendur. Very collectible. Lucky find! xo

Hello Bernideen: Your garden statues are so whimsical and charming--they must make perfect companions for a garden tea! The rose tablecloth is beautiful, and your flower arrangement is just gorgeous.


Your outdoor table for tea is beautiful in the glorious garden, sweet lady. I love the gorgeous teapot, teacups and accessories! Thank you for another great party.

Hi Bernideen,
Beautiufl tea in your garden as usual! Your table looks so lovely with the pink rose tablecloth and the sheer pink looks so pretty. I have the same tablecoth, only a red one and a yellow one. I also have the hobnail vase like yours! We do like the same things! Your flowers are so beautiful and my you have lots of Queen Anne's lace! So pretty! Lovely teapot and teacups, also. I really enjoy having tea in my garden. I look forward to it every week and will be sad when the weather turns cold. We've had such a beautufl summer, warmer than usual which I love. Again, thank you for hosting your lovely tea party!

Sarah said...

I'd love a cup of tea at this garden party in the cool temps of Colorado. ;-) Beautiful, Bernideen.

Betty Stapleton said...

You do make the loveliest flower arrangements and the Queen Annes Lace just adds to them. The teapot and cups n saucers are so pretty and love the tablecloth. We have sold them for years and watching auctions now for them. Now that I am we won't get them. But what really caught my eye was the crocheted teapot coaster. My mom had two of them when I was a little girl-50 years ago, one the same that you have and one green and white. Forgot all about them. Thank you for sharing them...

Rob Hunt said...

Thank you for the invitation to join in. I am following. Today I added my garden flowers plus the repair to a post.

Thank you for hosting.

Hello Bernideen
I like the way the sun is hitting your tea table this week, it really adds a cozy ambience.
Your silver pieces intrigued me, I've been picking up the odd piece here and there, finally found a tomato server that I was happy with.

What a delightful tea you have set up! Your table coverings are dreamy. Love that vintage rose cloth and the sheer underskirt. The setting in your garden is perfection too! So glad you're getting more liveable temperatures!

Jann Olson said...

Bernideen, your garden is so lovely that I could sit and sip a cup of tea for hours. Your table is so lovely. The flouncy pink skirt is wonderful. I am sure that your neighbor will love the flowers. Wish I had a tea in the garden post to share. Beautiful!!!
