LAST OF THE QUEEN ANNE'S LACE for "Tea In The Garden"

Nights are getting cooler and cooler bringing with them the soon change in the leaves.  This week marks the first week of September and change is in the air.  A new tea room opens here at the Lennox House Bed and Breakfast.  Isn't that exciting?  We have had some more rain - welcomed and wonderful but did not cause any flooding problems.  Time for some Tea In The Garden and time to enjoy THE LAST OF THE QUEEN ANNE'S LACE.







Welcome to my backyard garden - 




please come on into my cottage garden:


As you can see, I have set up a little table with a cup and saucer for each of us and since I am taking the photos - 
you can sit in the chair!




If you blog about tea - please join me by linking here at the bottom. In a few weeks, I will be changing this posting party back to "Friends Sharing Tea" since the weather will be turning colder.  Please share anything about tea, collecting teasets, baking, etc.










Asters grow wild in Colorado and I have several types that I dug up years ago in the Black Forest.  They are blooming now:




Today I am sharing my maple leaf teapot and
 cups and saucers with some fallish tabletop decor.  


The purple aster bottom right above is drooping from last night rain but it is more of a "cluster" type.  I will be sharing this post with these blog parties as well:

What a pretty garden, although I am NOT ready for Autumn yet. I do love your door with the Queen Anne's Lace welcoming you to the garden. Love the Staffordshire? pooches too. Thanks for hosting and for coming to tea.

Blessings,

I rarely posted tea in the garden this summer with all the rain and we had another deluge today. I like your tea set with the autumn leaves, so perfect as this season is just around the corner. What I really love are the napkins and tablecloth. I put out my autumn decor today and like the change.

That teaset is so fall-ish!

Rosemary and Thyme said...

What an enchanting garden. I love your fall setting. You have inspired me to start changing my décor. I adore your fall tea set too. It is simply gorgeous.

Thanks for hosting.

Angela McRae said...

Oh, I do love seeing the pretty fall colors making their way onto your tablescapes. I can practically smell the pumpkin bread or other treats I know you will be sharing with us very soon!

Kathryn Ross said...

Bernideen - I just love watching your garden change from season to season. Spring, Summer, Fall, and even the snows of winter - always a delight. Your post title this week strikes an "Anne of Green Gables" chord echoing Diana noting to Anne, "Here's the last of the Queen Anne's Lace" - in addition to the two china dogs which were favorite pieces in Anne's home during her first year of marriage to Gilbert in "Anne's House of Dreams". So - hmmmmm . . . may be the season for some Anne books if not the movie!
Joy!
Kathy

Susan Clayton said...

Such an inviting scene. Thank you for sharing!

Bernideen said...

Yes - I love that line where Diana Barry says that to Anne and puts it in her hair.

Cathy said...

Excited to find your blog. Love you lady of the garden and the garden also.

Jann Olson said...

Hi Bernideen, I love Queen Anne's Lace! It usually grows wild here, but when I tried to find some I couldn't. I will miss your tea in the garden! The tea set and the table linens are perfect for Fall. I will be featuring you at SYC this week.

I am over the top in love with the scene with the vintage door and the table in the background.

You are inspiring me to work in the garden tomorrow.
