A Spring Tea



                                                                       Hello everyone,
                                                          I hope you all enjoyed a lovely
                                                          Mother's Day weekend.

                                                          It was my first time to not be able
                                                          to celebrate with my own sweet
                                                          Mama but I was happy to spend time
                                                          with each of my own children.......and
                                                          they came bearing garden gifts~ they
                                                          know what makes me happy!

                                                                   So, it is a spring time tea today in
                                                                   the sun room with lots of pretty
                                                                   tulips.
                                                                This teapot is called Blushing Beauty.

                                                                      You can never have too many tulips.By next
                                                                      week I should be able to pick tulips from our
                                                                      garden again.

                                                         I just came in from the garden for
                                                                  a short tea break so I better get back
                                                                  out there as it is nice and sunny today.

                                                                    I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage
                                                                    and Bernideen's Tea Time Blog
                                                                    for their tea parties today.

                                                                             Thank you for stopping by!

                                                                                                Carolyn

So glad you had a nice Mother's Day with your family. I thought of my Mom too. I am sure you are very excited to have your upcoming garden. You could even name an area for your Mom as a tribute!

Spring is always the season of rebirth and your blog is a perfect visual of that process. Glad you had a great Mother's Day.

I'm so glad you had a nice Mother's Day with your lovely children, Carolyn. Your tulips are so perky and pretty. I love the ones my son brought me too. Your garden is no doubt coming along very nicely right now. I think Bernideen suggested a lovely idea. Thank you for joining me for tea today and have a wonderful week puttering in your garden.

Blessings,
Sandi

You and your children are lucky to know the value of appreciation and love. Happy you enjoyed your Mother's Day. The blushing beauty tea pot is gorgeous. My husband and I have been working in our garden and so many times I have to think of you because you were my inspiration that gave me courage to "plant a garden". Thank you for sharing and being so kind. Happy Spring!

Love that nice plump teapot, Carolyn. Reminds me of the one from Beauty and the Beast. Will be eager to see the photos of your tulips. I know your precious mother was with you in your heart and thoughts. Such a comfort to know we will see our mothers again. Have a blessed week! Bess
