Garden Roses & Tea

                                                                   Hello everyone,

                                       It is a beautiful sunny day here today so I
                                      took advantage of it and had tea on the porch.

Still hanging onto summer here.I

                                                      Love these English roses!

                                                          The Mary roses is blooming again.

Teacups & roses.

                                                          Now ,in case you are ready
                                                         for fall I did an autumn tea
                                                          for you.

The yellow roses are so sunny! It's wonderful that summer is hanging on for you. I'm sure your garden is still quite beautiful to visit. I can't think of a better way to enjoy the last warm days than lunch out with friends!

Oh, I'm still in summer mode, Carolyn. I really don't like to see summer coming to an end. Your English roses are gorgeous. I think they may be my favourites. Pretty teacups too. I have a couple in blue like your pink one with the roses. Hope you had a lovely lunch.

Beautiful photographs ... and your new header is lovely too. I am in Spring mode here as I'm in the Southern Hemisphere and we're heading into the season of roses and cicadas and long, long days.


Lovely roses and gorgeous tea china! Love your new header, it's just beautiful.

Your roses are magnificent! Love your teacups as well. Your posts and photos are always a joy! I'd love it if you would link to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

You are right, Old English style roses are the absolute best. I am especially partial to the Mary Rose. Mine is the last to bloom in the autumn. And, I'm Mary, ta da!

Hi Carolyn,
I always love seeing your lovely afternoon teas. :)
Thank you for sharing.

Bernideen said...

I love your beautiful cups and saucers and always appreciate your lovely photos and bouquets. I am really enjoying your lovely Afternoon Tea book.

What a beautiful mood you've created with those soft yellow tones!
Is it Golden Celebration?
I also love the last tea cup, it has such a lovely pattern.
I'm somehow in summer mood, although it's my son's first year at school and school equals autumn.

I enjoyed seeing your beautiful roses and china. I am pretty much in the fall mode. The fall colors are arriving and my garden is doing a final show with mums and rudbeckia.
I like that blue floral teacup you showed.

Stunning images, Carolyn. I do love the autumn vignette, although I hate to see summer come to an end. ~ Nancy

Hello Carolyn...Slowly and reluctantly, I have released summer and am welcoming fall, inch by lovely inch. Susan p.s. LOVE the yellow roses! So pretty.

Lovely photos, as always. I've been a follower for a short time and I have a question for you. Is Aiken House some kind of public space where weddings and tours are held? Just curious.


Carolyn said...

Hi Marrianna,
Our home and garden are our own private space but I do have a little business doing tours through a local tour company to pay for my gardening addiction but we don't do weddings.

Thank you for your visit.
