For the Love of Aqua Green and Pink

          I hope you all had a good weekend-it was a hot one here! I am happy to have it a little cooler here today and as I type this there is just a little breeze carrying the fragrance of the mock orange shrubs blooming just outside my window.
   On Saturday,I picked a big bouquet of Sarah Bernhart peonies to enjoy as the season is almost past for another year and I will enjoy the bouquet photos long into the winter.
                                   I think they look pretty in the green watering can.
                                 Our little conservatory got a boost with a few bouquets too.
                           Andrew built the little picket fence in behind the conservatory.

                                  I so enjoy  going around the garden and picking flowers for indoor bouquets.
                                    Aqua and pink,look so pretty together.

               You might remember that I talked about a Downton Abbey Garden Tea as a fundraiser so the date is now set for Saturday August 3rd. Tickets go on sale shortly and there is a limited number to be sold and all by advance booking ~ more info coming soon so please check back if you are interested in coming.

Hope you all have a good day!

Take care,

Hello, Carolyn

Each season of the year has its own bits of beauty, but you have me missing my peonies.

Yours are beautiful with the aqua accents. The various bouquets are breathtaking; I must go into my own garden and see what I can bring indoors to enjoy.

Best Wishes with the upcoming tea. If you weren't several provinces away, I would enjoy attending.

Hello Carolyn,

Spectacular as always. I love the aqua and I especially love the peonies.

I would love to join you for the tea party but I am afraid I live a bit too far.


Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Ooh, how gorgeous! My favourite colour combo! Such a pretty post and the little bouquet hanging on the chair is so sweet! Enjoy this cooler day.

Lavender Cottage said...

Aqua and pink are pretty, and Sarah Bernhardt is a lovely peony to feature.
Good luck with your tea, I know you'll sell out in no time.

Oh my, so beautiful!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Your pink peonies with the beautiful aqua things = GORGEOUS!

Your Downton Abbey Tea? Is it at the Aiken House?

Oh I waaaaannnnnnnaaaaaa come!!!!!

Oh my goodness how much I want to do that! Carolyn, it's killing me I live so far away from you and Sandi!

That pic of you is breathtaking - though your beautiful face would make it even better, of course.



Olá Carolyn,

As cores do verão são maravilhosas aí. Estamos viajando semana que vem para Orlando/Florida e vou fazer de tudo para ir até Mont Dora, no The Garden Gate Tea Room, lugar que me encantou desde a primeira vez que visitei seu blog. Se tiver algum outro local interessante, me informe. Vamos percorrer os parques da Disney com nosso filho Pedro, um casal de amigos e filho.

Um abraço.

Sempre que venho lhe ver, fico encantada com as fotos que você nos mostra, tudo muito lindo. A minha flor preferida é a margarida e cá está ela entre outras.

How lucky you are to have peonies and daisies blooming in the same time.
Aqua and pink are exquisite.

Carolyn, your blog is pure joy in my day! What an exciting event, a Downton Abbey tea! The series inspired me to make white flag buntings on my Downton Abbey era sewing machines. The buntings are on my Etsy shop, Treadle Lady.
Thank you for the beautiful photos and blog.

By investing once in chicken coop, you will become free for always.
