Peaches & Tea





Hello everyone,

We had a lot of rain today so we
postponed our afternoon cream tea
until next Tuesday at 2 pm.




However, I have made some peach
preserves for the tea to go
with the scones and devonshire
cream.


We are going with a blue and white
theme and our teacups are ready.
I do love blue & white!






This teapot is special as it belonged to
my Dutch Mama.



An enamelware tea set from
the 70 mile yard sale a few years ago.




We are hoping for a nicer day next
week but we did need the rain.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

We have been having lovely sunny days
here with enough rain to keep our garden
happy.

The garden has lots of  a
Annebelle hydrangeas
in full bloom now.



We have hundreds of daylillies
in bloom as well in all different
colors.

                                                             As we say goodbye to July
                                                             the garden will burst into
                                                             it's most colorful time with
                                                             phlox, hydrangeas,day lilies
                                                             clematis etc. in bloom.

  



                                                 If you read my previous post
                                                 you know we are hosting
                                                 an Afternoon Cream Tea
                                                 next week. All our tables
                                                 are already spoken for and
                                                 Barbara and I are looking
                                                 forward to it. Our theme this
                                                 time is a more casual Blue &
                                                 White theme so we have been
                                                  gathering up all the blue and 
                                                  white china, tablecloths napkins etc. 

                                                 This time we are happy to have a young
                                                 harpist in the garden as well.

                                                As with our previous tea all the money
                                                will be donated to the people of Ukraine.

                                                            Thanks for visiting,
                                                                   Carolyn
