Tea Under the Apple Blossoms

                                                                            Welcome!

                                                 It is such a beautiful time of the year ~ my
                                                favorite time as I may have mentioned once
                                                or twice.
                                                    It is apple blossom time here and we have
                                               a few really old trees that have been here since
                                              our home was a farm.
                                                            Love their delicate beauty and
                                                           gentle fragrance.
                                                         Might as well enjoy them while they
                                                        last and have an afternoon tea break.
                                                        This vintage chaise has a good set
                                                       of wheels so I can haul it anywhere ~
`                                                      might be a good idea for my indoor
                                                       furniture too!
                                                   It is comfortable and relaxing!

                                                         I took out my book for after my tea.
                                                         The book is Cold Sassy Tree and I have
                                                        read it a couple of times over the years
                                                        but am ready to reread it.....love the story.
                                                        I saw the movie several years ago too.
                                     
                                                    A bouquet of apple blossoms with lilacs.



                                                         

                                            Julie at Julie's Little House did a feature on
                                           my blog today if you would like to visit and
                                          check it out.......Thank you Julie for the honor!


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

                                                   Thanks for  visiting me!
                                                                              Carolyn

Carolyn, this looks so comfortable and romantic, with a book and a cup of tea on a lovely vintage chaise in your beautiful spring garden. Just wonderful pictures.

Is there anything more charming than an apple tree in blossom? Your setting is just so pretty and reminds me of my grandparents' apple orchards. I always loved to play among the trees, smelling those sweet blossoms. Such lovely memories! I'm ready for the lilacs too. Pity they only last a short time. Thank you for coming to tea and have a lovely evening.

Blessings,
Sandi

A relaxing place to sit with tea and a good book surrounded by fragrant blossoms. Life is good on a day like this, isn't it?

Your photographs take me back to a time I would have loved to live in. Lace, parasols and tea in the garden. Just perfectly beautiful!

You know that first pic - if you used the pic app called WATERLOGUE it would look like Claude Monet painting! You are so beautiful!

What a fabulous place in the garden to enjoy tea. Your dress and lovely hat plus umbrella are so beautiful. The time to reread and enjoy a love story is so special and this is a tranquil place. Have a wonderful time enjoying your book!

Carolyn, I'm always admiring this post...what is the white linen in the chaise? Is that just a throw? It is beautiful. Funny, the little things that catch our eye :)
