Cottage Garden Tea

         Hello everyone,

       I can't believe a week has gone by since
      my last post. There is always so much
            going on at this beautiful time of the year.

    Since, the weather was so beautiful
we spent some time at our little
cottage and were able to enjoy
having our meals outdoors.

    Last fall I planted a few batches of tulips.
I am trying to refrain from adding too
     much of a garden since it has a wonderful
view to just sit and enjoy......but I am
not very disciplined and enjoy having
bouquets to pick .We are fortunate
that there was already a border along
the fence though and a hedge of old
roses soon to bloom.


Our lilacs are in full bloom in
our garden now. .

After enjoying a beautiful day in the
sunshine we enjoyed watching the moon
reflect on the water from the windows
of our cottage.

Thank you for visiting!

Ahh. What a beautiful setting, I can just imagine sitting there with my sister drinking lemonade or iced tea., and having the windy breeze blow while we talk. :) It would also be perfect to relax there while reading a book, journaling, or coloring. :)

Thank you for sharing so many pictures of your beautiful home. You are so blessed to live in such a pretty and relaxfull place. :D

I am obsessed with the beautiful needlepoint pillow of the sail boats. Did you make this? I love it! Everything looks beautiful, Carolyn.
