Coming soon.....!





Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.

There is lots going on here this
summer but one of the biggest
changes is that a blog friend from
California is living in our house for
the summer. I met Barbara and her
family a couple of times as they came
to tour our garden. It seems Barbara
and I are kindred spirits as we both
love gardening, pretty china,tea times,
and of course Prince Edward Island.






So as we were chatting and working
in the garden yesterday I asked
Barbara if she would like to
host a fundraiser tea with me
and she jumped at the idea.
So, we immediately started
planning menu,flowers,
china etc.


We are planning on a late June garden tea. 






The photos above are from my
Downton Abbey themed tea
a few years ago.

Barbara and I will be happily planning
this over the next week and I will keep
you posted. We have decided on donating
the proceeds to benefit the people of
Ukraine .....a very worthy cause.

I will have more details soon so check
back as there will be a limited number
of spaces available.

I have met so many lovely people
from all over the world
 through both the garden
and my blog.....never
realized that would
happen when I first
started blogging over
fifteen years ago!

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Spring Around our Pond




Hello everyone,

We have had some beautiful sunny
days here on the Island so nature
is putting on a good show.
I love all the fresh green colors
of the new growth.


It was a beautiful calm sunny evening
so I love the reflection in the pond.


Our little Boathouse is a
sweet little escape .


The serviceberry trees are in full
bloom now.They grow wild around
the pond,ditches etc.


Relax




Watching the ducks
