Just Peachy



                                                                           Hello everyone,

                                                   I hope your weekend went well. I enjoyed
                                                   getting back into the swing of things as our
                                                   tours with Japan started up again. I enjoy
                                                  their enthusiasm in spite of the damp and
                                                  cool weather we had for all 3 tours.
                                                      This morning I enjoyed a few hours
                                                  working in the garden before the rain
                                                 chased me indoors for a cup of tea.

                                                              I picked a bouquet of peachy daffodils
                                                              to enjoy.

                                                      I love the double peach ones.


                                Thank you for joining me for a peachy tea today.

                                            I am joining Tea Time Tuesday at
                                           Rose Chintz Cottage.

                                                                                                  Carolyn

Hi Carolyn
Love all the flowers what beautiful colours. Sounds like your weather is a bit like ours rain and sunshine!!

Dear Carolyn,

It's a joy to see photo's of the first spring flowers in your garden! What a beautiful variety of Daffodils you have. The colours look amazing! I hope your tours will be a success. I am crossing my fingers the weather will turn and it will become a bit more springlike.

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog too. Such a coincidence you stayed in Chipping Campden as well :-)

Wishing you a lovely week!

Yes, the weather has been so cold and wet lately, hasn't it! I'm glad your tours are going well in spite of it. The double daffodils are so pretty and look wonderful arranged in the pitcher. The Skye McGhie tea things are pretty too. I have the c/s in that same pattern. Have a nice day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Carolyn! These are the most beautiful daffs I've ever seen. The ruffly insides are so pretty! I'm so sure your tourists enjoyed their time at your lovely place. Hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,

Just beautiful! I love your double daffodils. All I ever see are wild yellow ones so now I'm thinking I need to plant peach on purpose! Love your tea pot and cup, too. Visiting from Rose Chintz Cottage - so glad I did!!

Daniela said...

My dear Carolyn, these shades of pink are so romantic, delicate, so elegant and express so perfectly your delightful taste !
Have a wonderful week and thank you so much my dear, to come and visit you is always such a big joy for the soul <3

Loved the peachy daffodils, Carolyn.

Actually I like peach tea, too.

Glad your weekend went well and wish the same for the rest of the week. It's funny because I thought today was Monday and it's already Tuesday!

Take care. Susan

Hello Carolyn,
It's another cool and wet day but it sounds like things are going to warm up by Thursday! Can't wait! Thank you for joining me for tea but I think you forgot to link up as I don't see your thumblink. Enjoy your day and take care, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Everything is beautiful. Those daffodils certainly are stunning. What a lovely color they are.

Where I live, we get little to no rain from May through October. Once we get through winter and early spring, our precip drops to virtually nothing until late fall. So, I am enjoying some beautiful, sunny days right now---my reward for getting through another winter.

Blessings,
Patti @ Magnolia Cottage

Beautiful Daffodils and a beautiful teacups. I remember, when we visited PEI, seeing all the Japanese tourists. I was told they are huge fans of Anne of Green Gables.
