An Island Autumn Picnic



Hello,
     This past weekend my husband and I decided to take 
a couple of days and enjoy touring the Island.
So,one day we had a day trip down east and the
next it was the western part of the Island~
Prince Edward Island .

                               
                                                We had beautiful sunny warm weather so
                                                we took along a picnic to enjoy outdoors.
                                                 The antique quilt was a $2 find at the 70 mile
                                                 yard sale.


                                               A thermos of tea,some healthy sandwiches
                                               with a sweet treat was just what we needed,
                                               by a small stream in a park.


                                                        We traveled small back country roads.
                                                      And stopped to enjoy a small lake where
                                                      the trees where taking on their autumn colors.
                                                        The last few days have made quite a difference
                                                      in the landscape along the roads but also here
                                                      in our garden.

                                        We enjoyed beautiful sunsets both nights
                                                  on our drive back home.                        


             I hope you enjoyed coming along for the drive on 
         an early autumn weekend.

I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and
Bernideen's Tea Time Blog for Tea in the Garden.



Take care,
Carolyn

Late Season Beauties



                                                             
                                         I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had some summery                                                                 weather here so we made the most of it ~ touring
                                         the Island from one end to the other.

                                         This morning I went out to the garden to pick some
                                          flowers for bouquets to indoors.The roses are
                                          still giving me a few blooms to enjoy.
                                                      I love this late season beauty.

                                                   A few bouquets from last week.
                                                     Even a single rose adds charm.

                                                 My morning beauties are now being enjoyed
                                                 in the kitchen.
                  I am joining Lavender Cottage today for Mosaic Monday with
                           Judith .
                               Well, I have been invited for tea with some of my good friends
                            so I better pick another bouquet to take along with me.

                                                            Thanks for visiting,
