A Garden Tour

The garden is full of blooms now so I thought you might like to take a tour with me.

I have several Annebelle hydrangea in the garden. I love how easy care they are as well as beautiful and long lasting.

Jackmani clematis with Mary Rose.

I love this yellow rose but I don't know the name of it. If I had more time I could maybe find a record of it.

We have so many daylilies in bloom now-I will share some photos of them later.

It is a just a quick tour today as we are taking our grandaughter Jessie out for a fun day-you will probably see more of that too as you probably know I don't go far without my camera!

Have a good day!

Garden Tea

Today I thought we could have afternoon tea in this corner of our garden. It has lots of pretty flowers bursting into bloom so it is a cozy corner to sit for a spell.

I hope you like peach cream crumble pie-it is one of my favorites.

I collect red and white transferware dishes-so I have quite a few dishes in different patterns so I mix and match.

Today I am joining in on Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps on the Porch. This is always a great event so a big thank you to Susan for hosting and enjoy checking out the other participants.

I hope you enjoy your tea in the garden and thank you for visiting me,

Take care,

It is a beautiful day to be in the garden today so I hope you can join me for a spot of tea and some strawberry shortcake.

I hope you can sit for a bit and enjoy all the beauty of the garden because this is probably the most colorful time in our garden. Later ,we can take a tour around the garden.

Hope you enjoy this beautiful day!
