A Pink Tea



                                                                        Hello everyone,

                                                 It was cooler here today but still a beautiful sunny
                                                 day and I planted a few hundred bulbs in the garden
                                                 today~ imagining the beauty they will create come spring.
                                                 After,working in the garden it is nice to enjoy a tea
                                                 time break.

                                                                  I found this sweet pitcher at the
                                                                  thrift store this week and filled
                                                                  it with a mix of Royal Bonica
                                                                  roses from the garden and some
                                                                  grocery store roses.

                                                                A box of new teas to enjoy.

                                                                    A pretty pink teacup `' Tuscan'
                                                                    made in England.

                                                               An African Violet in
                                                               a lace wrapped pot.

 Just a short little tea break today as there
is lots going on here today.

We have started the fall cleanup in the garden and I
always have mixed feelings on seeing all the plants
getting chopped off as we get ready for winter.
However, it is good to get it done before the cold
sets in.

I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage and
today.

Thank you for visiting,
Carolyn

Oh my, Carolyn, your florals are gorgeous! The pitcher is perfect for them and your teacup is very pretty. It is sad to have to put the garden to bed for the winter. But with hundreds of new bulbs planted, I can imagine your delight at seeing them pop their pretty heads next Spring. Thank you for sharing your pretty post with us and joining me for tea. Have a lovely week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your tea is absolutely lovely, Carolyn.

It's been cold and rainy the last few days - I soo need to get my garden ready for it's sleepy winter.

Your pink roses are perfect for your tea - and that teacup is gorgeous!

Your new "old" pitcher is wonderful and your florals are always lovely. I love your style. You teacup reminds me of Rosina's or Tuscan's or ???? Very pretty!

All very pretty, Carolyn! It is hard to say those last goodbyes to the warmer months ... but they will return, and we'll get to enjoy the results of your labor of love in planting all those bulbs. Be blessed, Bess PS: Your comfort food in the next post looks delicious!
