Lilac Tea at Ocean Song Cottage




     Hello everyone,

It is lilac time here on the Island so
  I have picked a big bouquet to enjoy
with my afternoon tea at our little
Ocean Song Cottage.




We are having some very cool nights with below
freezing temperatures even one night last week
and since we are in a low lying area some of my
lilac blooms were destroyed so I will have to
enjoy the ones that survived. I think the last
time that happened was over 20 years ago.


I love the fragrance as well as the beauty
of lilacs. 
I am using blue and white as my tea time
theme.


There are still some late tulips
blooming in our garden.



I can no longer send my photos over to my blog from
Picasa so it is taking me much longer to load them
from photoshop as I can only send one at a time from there.
Probably there is a faster way that I haven't figured out
yet though.
Is anyone else having that problem with picasa?

Wishing you a lovely week!

Carolyn

Apple Blossom Tea



Hello everyone,

I hope your June is going well.
June is my favorite month of the
year as the Island looks so lush
green and beautiful!
Also, our garden takes on a
life of it's own with lots
still to look forward to.

It has been quite awhile since I posted
here but there is so much to do
right now that it is hard to find
the time and I confess that the less I
post the less I even think about my
poor little blog.


We have had an unusual spring here as
we had ice in our birdbath a few nights
ago and some of  our trees got hit with
a heavy frost . The buds on my yellowbird
magnolia were froze and that has never
happened to it before. Thankfully,the lilac
buds looked limp but have recovered.
They will soon be blooming and I am
looking forward to big bouquets of
them.


Anyway, it is tea time  and the
apple blossoms are in full bloom
here now so I picked a small
bouquet.



                                                          I see the rain has stopped so my tea time
                                                                     is over as I can get out and enjoy doing
                                                                     some gardening now!

                                                                                    Thank you for stopping by,

                                                                                                     Carolyn
