Just Peachy!

Hello everyone,
    We have been enjoying some beautiful sunny weather here so I want to spend as much time out in the garden as possible so lets enjoy our tea in the garden again.
I am setting the table for you!
A beautiful peach colored bouquet,I picked just for you!

A soft peach teacup with some beautiful Graham Thomas roses.
I love my hats and these delicate gloves belonged to my husband's aunt.

How about a nice light dessert with your tea-it is called Lemon Fool.
Sweet cherubs among the bouquets.

The daylilies are beautiful aren't they?

Lets sit for awhile and enjoy the sunshine in the garden over a nice cup of tea!

I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday today.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Misty Morn and welcome to all my new followers.I hope to have more time for visiting soon. Wow! can August possibly be over already???

Take care,

A Misty Morn in the Garden

Hello everyone,
    I hope all is well with you after Hurricane Irene passed through-here we escaped with only a windy day and some rain but I know some of you were hit harder but maybe not as hard as anticipated.
  One morning late last week we arose to a very misty morn so I grabbed my camera and took a few shots around the garden. I loved the look of the angel above with the mist around giving a mystical look.

The roses look so pretty in the mist.
I will let you wander around the garden -enjoy the soft mystical  look as you go.

 We have seven of our grandchildren here for a couple of days so we are enjoying the sound of giggles and happy excited little voices in our home once again.
 We are supposed to have beautiful weather here all week so we will happily take it!

I am joining Cielo for show off your cottage Monday at the house in the roses.

Thank you for visiting me,

Beach Days

Hello again,
     We have finally had some nice summer weather here so we packed up and headed to the beach a few days ago as we realize that the time for enjoying the beach will all too soon be gone for another year.
We have so many beautiful beaches here on the Island.
Our grandchildren also enjoyed a day at the beach.
This is Northport and was taken a few years ago but it is on my wish list to go back again soon.
A picnic at the beach is always a treat,
And of course, a trip to the beach on a summer evening to watch the sun go down is the perfect way to end a day!
Well, now I think we should head to the beach to watch that beautiful sun go down!

I am joining Hakan for Show off Saturday-pop in and see his beautiful roses and also the other lovely blogs that joined in.

Hope all goes well for all on the east coast as Hurricane Irene passes through.

Take care,

A Splash of Color

Hello everyone,
        I have a little splash of color for you today. This time of year there is lots of color in our garden so I hope will enjoy some vibrant colors for a little change.
  I love the pop of color this obelisk gives the garden and I think the rosy pinks look so pretty against it.
I think this vibrant yellow rose is Golden Celebration.
How about a bouquet of flowers?
Not so mellow yellows
A hint of orange
You might notice I have taken a liking to this blue color!

 Hope you enjoyed a splash of color in your life today.

Thank you Linda at Beautiful Ideas for the lovely features on our garden this past week-your kindness amazes me !
Thank you also to a fellow Island blogger Marguerite at Canoe Corner who came to our garden tour and also did a lovely feature this week!.

Also, as some of you already know Jo Anne Coletti's new magazine The Feminine Home is now on sale here and I am so honored to be included in it.

YES! That last one is me!!!  Don't forget to check it out -I know you will love it!
