ENGLISH GARDEN STYLE for "Tea In The Garden"

I adore the charming English Garden
style of mixing 
cottage flowers together.



I found this olde English Daintee Lady
teapot in for all places - West Virginia.




Today we are in the garden
and we can all pretend for a bit
that we don't have a care in
the world.


I hope you like scones because 
I baked
you some - please enjoy!




I think this is what I love about
a garden.  "It is a place to escape
and experience something else
than the usual routine."




Last Saturday our subdivison had
 a garage sale and we participated 
which is not my idea of fun but
I was happy to get rid of some 
unwanted items.  How about you?



We have the feeling we always get
which is that spring has gone way
to fast this year since it came late.



On Sunday it rained all day and all
night which was really too much
for my peonies. 

 Below, I am 
sharing a "new to me" teapot
which is called Chelsea Chintz
by Windor - English.











If you would like to bake these
 Lemon Scones
the recipe can be found here.


I hope you can participate in
my tea related blog party!

Bernideen, this is beautiful. And I have to admit that I am obsessed with your beautiful garden. But today, I am loving the blue teapot. All those ruffles really appeal the girly girl in me. Just so pretty.

Stephanie said...

My dear Bernideen, it was such a joy spending time with you in the garden. Oh, what lovely china you have and the lady tea pot is just too sweet. Thank you for brightening my morning. Hugs!

Lovely as usual. Love the new teapot. Wish I was sitting there sipping tea from it and nibbling one of those scones. Yes, neighborhood sales are alot of work. I will do one this summer and have a lot to get rid of waiting for the sale. Everytime I do one I say this is the last time.

I love a cottage garden. Its my favorite, and I love to mix all the flowers into beautiful bouquets like you've done. I'm planning a seating area in my cottage garden and I hope to find a nice table and chairs like you have.

Sweet new teapot!

Patti said...

This is beautiful! I wish I was there enjoying tea with you.

I have been decluttering, and at first I was thinking I would just donate everything. Then I thought maybe I will have a yard sale and make a bit of cash. Not sure if that bit of cash is worth the frustration of a yard sale, though.

Blessings,
Patti @ Celebrating Our Days

Bernideen, wish I'd been there for your new teapot's maiden voyage in your beautiful garden! Thank you for hosting. Your scones look perfect! I make my sausage rolls small, perfect for afternoon tea or hors d'oeuvres.

What a beautiful tea time setting! I'm still waiting for my peonies to bloom. Hope that the garage sale was a success! I would rather go to garage sales than host one. HA! Thanks for hosting!

I wrote a comment, but it's not showing up, Bernideen.
Anyway....I always enjoy your enchanting teas in the garden. Both of your teapots are wonderful, and I'd love a scone to share with you, along with a cup of tea. Thank you for hosting and sharing with us.

Bernideen, it could not be more beautiful than this spot in your yard! I love your gardens and that fence. The tea setting is the icing on the cake!

What a fabulous setting for a tea party.

I love the little tablecloth with the teapots around the edges.

So lovely to be able to visit! And to see you back having tea in the garden. Lovely! Everything is lovely and I can almost smell the flowers. Love the wonderful shadows from the trees. So welcoming and peaceful Bernideen! Thanks so much for hosting.

Oh my word, Bernideen - you've outdone yourself. What a gorgeous garden tea time! And your chintz ware is beautiful!!!!

Did you join in the tea fun at Poofing the Pillows? Stacey was a co-host of a new fun tea blog party.......I had company again all weekend and just couldn't get a tea post together.

And my white peonies are even in bloom. Oh, Lord, grant me Thy Patience!!!!
