On the Porch




         Hello everyone,

   I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
       We have been busy getting ready for our
'Open Garden' tomorrow.
So, I haven't been relaxing on the
porch much but I thought I
would share a few photos of
it today.
On one end we have a table
        where we enjoy our meals in summer.

On the other end we have a
good place to relax and
enjoy the view of the
garden. This porch is
screened in.

It has a similar look to last
year but as always I made
a few little changes.
           
                                                                    We still have some peonies
                                                                    blooming in the garden but
                                                                    they will soon be gone.

                                                                          A pretty bouquet of
                                                                          English roses and
                                                                          Multi Blue clematis.

                                                                           Tea Time on the porch.

                                                                          Pretty sandwiches on a
                                                                          transferware plate.
             




                                                     Just want to remind anyone close by
                                                                that would like to tour our garden
                                                                tomorrow is the day!
                                                                There are a few other gardens on the
                                                                tour as well.

                                                                You can email me if you need directions

Hello Carolyn,
Everything looks just perfect.
Hope the weather is kind to you for your 'Open Garden' and it all goes well. Wish I could be there, but I can always call in via your lovely blog.
It's cold and wet here in Melbourne, so I'm enjoying your lovely summer flowers.
Thank you for sharing the beauty. I'm sure it requires much preparation and maintenance.
Best wishes,
Betty

What a treat your visitors have in store. How I wish I could be one of the lucky to stroll your beautiful garden and enjoy tea on your delightful porch. All the best for a lovely day.

Tasty looking sandwiches. Would like to know what type of sandwich is the one in the middle, the one that has color to the filling.
Looks so luscious.
