A May Day Tea

Hello everyone,
       It is hard to believe April is almost over and tomorrow we welcome May. It is still cool here but the weatherman has predicted sunshine and warmer temps for the next few days so the garden will jump ahead now.
   Anyway,lets enjoy a cup of tea with a pretty garden bouquet.
Daffodils and hyacinths are pretty and fragrant.Did you notice my pretty little vase from tjmaxx? It goes nicely with the pretty mugs from Winners(tjmaxx in U.S.)



Sugar cookies on a pretty plate also from tjmaxx.



Inexpensive china but so pretty together.
My garden bouquet with some faux blue hydrangeas.

I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday again today.

Happy May Day!

Take care,

Carolyn

Beautiful pictures. I just love your flowers, wicker, it is all lovely. I too can't believe how swiftly April came and left. This year is just flying by. Wow. I am ready for beautiful blooms and have planted many flowers this season. Just love how they make me feel when I drive up to our property. Have a lovely week.

It is all wonderful and spring like. Your daffodils and hyacinths must smell delightful.

I love TJ Maxx, too. I always find something that I "need" to bring home with me.

Seeing those cups and how things are prepared makes me nostalgic in the days that I've been living in Alabama.
