Tea in the Garden

     Hello everyone,

It was a beautiful day here today
and I finally had time for tea in the
                                                                       This little enclosed garden is
                                                                       my favorite part of the garden
                                                                       in the spring so what better place
                                                                       to enjoy a relaxing tea and enjoy
                                                                       the song of the birds and the beauty
                                                                       of nature all around us.
                                                                      I picked another big bouquet
                                                                      of lilacs and am using blue
                                                                      and white transferware.
                         Martha (the statue) is an elegant 
                            addition to this space and the mirror
                           behind her adds interest and reflects
                             the garden. It is shaded by the trees so
                                   the sun doesn't shine on it ( a fire hazard).

                                                                         Spode teacups

                                                         The lilacs are so beautiful now but
                                                                    the first of my peonies have started
                                                                    to bloom as the garden is progressing
                                                                    quickly ~ such a beautiful time of the

                                                                                Take care,
