A Summer Garden Tea

Hello everyone,

It has been hot here lately so it is
a good time to enjoy tea in the garden,
especially in a  nice shady spot.

So today we are enjoying our
afternoon tea in our garden
terrace. The terrace is covered
with virginia creeper which
makes it shady and cooler.

Shades of pink for our
tea today.

A pretty pink quilt covers the
table and of course I picked
some flowers from the garden
for bouquets.

I love these garden chairs that I
bought at Winner's several years

I almost forgot we to bring out
some sweet treats for our tea.

                                                               I hope you are enjoying your summer.

                                                                    Thank you for joining me for tea
                                                                    in the garden today.

Hi Carolyn
it sounds like you've been having great summer weather which is great. I live in Southern Ontario we've had so much rain this summer it feels like we haven't had much of a summer here and it's the middle of August almost!
Anyway your garden is stunning I hope this Covid scare is over soon so we can travel again, love to go visit PEI again and go visit your garden.

I love the beautiful quilt for the table covering!
Tea anytime it isn't rainy is gorgeous in the garden.

Carolyn said...

Thanks everyone for your kind words....I appreciate them.

Lisa D. , The large pitcher was a gift from my daughter several years ago.It came from Winners.
I love it still and have had many compliments on it.
Sadly, the rose is a climber that I have forgotten the name of.

Maria B. I hope we can all feel safe travelling soon.

Take care,

Everything looks very lovely and inviting, Carolyn. I just love pink roses. Unfortunately, here in western Massachusetts, the mosquitoes are very bad this year. I cannot sit outside at all. Take care and have a great rest of the summer. I always love visiting your blog! Susan

What exquisite images. Such beauty is a balm for my weary soul. Thank you, Carolyn, for sharing this beauty with us. Today, when there is so much ugliness in the world, it seems almost an act of defiance to focus on the beautiful and good. God bless you. <3
