Sunday Afternoon Tea in the Terrace

                                                                                   Hello everyone,

                                                                    We are having a sunny but windy day
                                                                    here but it is lovely in the terrace today
                                                                    so it is tea time among the peonies for us.
         The peonies are in full bloom now
          along with roses and the late lilacs
     so the garden smells wonderful.

                                                                         Lots of pink for today's tea.
       I love peonies of all colors
                 but these big pink Sarah Bernhardt
are one of my favorites.

                                                                  Have a seat and I will pour
                                                                  the tea. The pretty patchwork
                                                                  pillow was a thrift find.
                                                                        Pretty pink teacups.

                                                     I hope you are enjoying a relaxing
                                                                afternoon tea.

                                                                                Thank you for visiting,

what you do to scare the ants of your roses and all your garden? They end with my roses

Carolyn said...

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for your visit. I don't notice a lot of ants in the garden. We grow organically and I don't worry about perfection so it all works out. We have a lot of birds in the garden and I hope they are busy eating insects and keeping a balance in nature!

Enjoy your day!

Ahhh, sooo very wonderful, Carolyn!
And, my favourite colour is PINK, of course. Lol
EnJOY this day, my friend. Love the happy tablecloth.
Wishing you a beautiful start to a brand new week.

What a beautiful way to start my day.... with PINK! I love love love pink.... and I love everything about your table setting and garden setting. That pitcher is beautiful. I want to "pin" every photo you've shown here. Wish I was close enough to come for a visit and share some afternoon tea (and desserts!) in your enchanting garden.

You have the most beautiful china collection I've ever seen. And your peonies. Oh my gosh. Perfection.
