NATALIE'S BIRDHOUSE for "Tea In The Garden"

Last week one of my customers gifted me with a 
darling little birdhouse teapot or I guess I should call it a
teapot birdhouse.  Thanks so much Natalie!
  I will miss her but always think of her when I look at it!







I don't want to pretend all these flowers suddenly bloomed in my garden.  Sunday I was at Lowe's and they had their gallon perennials for just $4.00 for the day.  I loaded up the SUV as they were the nicest plants I'd seen in town.  My own delphiniums were coming up nicely but not yet blooming, so now they are multiplied.






There were lots of shadows in the garden
 this morning as the sun came up.



Today I am sharing two of my beloved teapots. 

 I love the romantic floral ones.







I hope you can join me by posting something
 about tea at the bottom of this posting.  Would you be sweet and include a link to this post on yours?


You know that I always love to participate in other blog parties:

Hi Bernideen,
Your Tea in the Garden is so beautiful today! Happy it's that time again! I do love your garden flowers and shadows! Your grass is so green and lush. Mine is burnt from our warm weather. Your teapots are very pretty! Sorry I was unable to link up to your tea time last week but my mother had two strokes and I managed to post my tea time but didn't have the chance to link up to all of my favourite blogs. Happy Tea Day and Thank you for hosting! Karen

The birdhouse was a sweet gift, Bernideen, and it looks so pretty in your yard. Speaking of your tea in the garden, it is so fresh and colorful and a perfect spot for relaxing with a cup of tea. You know that I always appreciate your garden whimsy and your pretty teapots. Thanks for hosting and may you have a lovely week.

Oh, your garden is so lovely, Bernideen! I no longer have one, only the wee bed at the top of the driveway. I have been very busy preparing for my son's visit and didn't have a chance to do a tea out on the deck. The wind has been crazy here too lately. One of these days, hopefully, I will be able to do one outside. The teapot birdhouse is really cute and a lovely reminder of your friend Natalie! Your teapots are both lovely. Thank you for hosting and joining me for tea today.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your yard has really come alive and is so pretty with all the green grass. You have a lot of flowers. Your benches just make the place so welcoming. What a lovely setting for Tea Time. The bird house Tea Pot is very pretty; such a nice gift. Love your Quilt!

The garden is beautiful and that birdhouse teapot is adorable....

What a darling birdhouse. Love the use of a tea pot spout as a perch. Your yard looks beautiful! Now why doesn't my Lowe's ever offer such bargains?!

Margie said...

Your teapot birdhouse is delightful, Bernideen! What a clever way to repurpose old teapots or broken china!

Marilyn Miller said...

Oh your garden is bursting with beauty.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The teapot birdhouse is a nice gift Bernideen, very thoughtful. Good heavens, only $4 for gallon size perennials - I would have loaded up too.
Your tea garden is filling in nicely.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday, it's nice to visit with my tea friends.

What a lovely garden you have! Perfect place for a cuppa. The birdhouse is delightful.
I'm thinking flowers should be on sale now, too; a good time to get some extras.

Beautiful garden perfect for spending great lazy days of summer.
Tending is a lot of work, but fun.
Thank you for the party.
Hugs,

Hi Bernideen! Your garden is looking so pretty. Very different new birdhouse teapot! It looks like mosaics. It's always fun seeing all your neat statuary :)

Nora @ Teacup Tales said...

It's just so relaxing looking at photos of your garden. I'm a bit envious as my garden is suffering from drought and warm weather. Your floral teapot blends in beautifully with your colorful flowers. The teapot birdhouse is such a nice gift. Your friend, Natalie, really knows your interests.
Enjoy your tea time outside this week,
Nora

Lovely blogspot!

Bernideen, my post this week was Chicken Chowder, so I didn't link it. I've been finally doing a bit of planting, but my garden is definitely not up to *your* standards! What a beautiful garden you have! In anticipation of my first garden tea party of the season, I put terra cotta pots of lavender at either side of the entry to the gazebo.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Your tea time in that beautiful garden of yours is lovely, Bernideen!

WOW- you did well grabbing $4 gallon perennials! Well done! Sometimes we must, yes?

Have a wonderful weekend. Sorry I have been absent. Hugs.
