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

Random Bits


 Hello everyone,

  With the onset of spring there is always
      lots to do before my first Japanese visitors
arrive so there has been little time for
blogging or photo shoots.
So today I just have some random
bits to share with you.




                                                                   Tea in the Boathouse sun room above.

                                                                      Love this old soup tureen

Our china cupboard with blue and
white transferware makes me
smile.



                                                                          Pretty teacups

                                                                            A cottage vignette

A pretty tea set.....a gift from a friend.

                                                        And last but not least  some early spring
                                                                   color in our garden.
                                                                     There is so much promise of good things
                                                                   to come in our garden and every day makes
                                                                   a difference!

                                                                          I hope you have a great weekend,

                                                                                        Carolyn
