You're Invited to a Victorian Garden Tea Party

                                                                             Hello everyone,

                                                     Yesterday was a busy day in the garden as we
                                                      had a big bus load of gardener's from Nova Scotia
                                                      arrive in the afternoon as well as our "open garden"
                                                      visitors in the evening and a lovely couple from Montreal.
                                                       So, I had lots of fellow gardeners to chat with!
                                                            Now, I am looking forward to hosting a
                                                      Victorian Garden Tea soon......Saturday, July 21th.
                                                            There will be 2 seatings 10 to 12 am and 1:30
                                                       to 3:30. Tickets are going fast go so if you would
                                                        like to come you can buy your ticket online from
                                                        Gaylene Smith.
                                                        This is a fundraiser for Mikinduri Children of Hope
                                                         and the tickets are $25 each. I am happy to be able
                                                         to support this great cause .





There will be tea and scones with devonshire cream
and lemon curd.






                                                             You can enjoy a stroll through the garden.
                                                              You can check out the photos from my
                                                              Downton Abbey Tea a few years ago here.



Our late July garden a few years ago.

Take a tour of the Gardener's Cottage

Enjoy our little Boathouse that my husband and
son built a few years ago using recycled windows
doors etc.

The Boathouse is a favorite spot with
many of our visitors and I have enjoyed
sleeping in here on warm summer nights.




I love being able to use my rather
large collection of  pretty china.




                                             My friend Janice on our screened porch ,giving the bouquets a final
                                              tweak. I love picking bouquets for the tables
                                             from the garden .

So, if you are free and this looks like
something you would enjoy and support
a very worthy cause at the same time you
can contact Gaylene Smith  for tickets.

For more info on getting your tickets

Hope to see you soon!
Carolyn

How fabulous. I am sure you will have to turn them away. What a special time and to see your gardens would be so special.

I meant turn them away because it fills up of course!

I was going to ask where you were located, but when I scrolled down to the bottom of the page I seen Prince Edward Island. My heart sank! I am a big fan of Ann of Green Gables. I would dearly love to come there. But alas I am too far away. Everything is just beautiful.

Your boat house is just enchanting, I'm sure I could curl up on that bed and have the most magical dreams.

Olá, uma bela iniciativa. Estou torcendo pelo sucesso. Já fico imaginando sua bela decoração. Gostaria muito de estar presente, mas a distância impede. Sucesso.

Lauriane.
