Coming soon.....!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.

There is lots going on here this
summer but one of the biggest
changes is that a blog friend from
California is living in our house for
the summer. I met Barbara and her
family a couple of times as they came
to tour our garden. It seems Barbara
and I are kindred spirits as we both
love gardening, pretty china,tea times,
and of course Prince Edward Island.

So as we were chatting and working
in the garden yesterday I asked
Barbara if she would like to
host a fundraiser tea with me
and she jumped at the idea.
So, we immediately started
planning menu,flowers,
china etc.

We are planning on a late June garden tea. 

The photos above are from my
Downton Abbey themed tea
a few years ago.

Barbara and I will be happily planning
this over the next week and I will keep
you posted. We have decided on donating
the proceeds to benefit the people of
Ukraine .....a very worthy cause.

I will have more details soon so check
back as there will be a limited number
of spaces available.

I have met so many lovely people
from all over the world
 through both the garden
and my blog.....never
realized that would
happen when I first
started blogging over
fifteen years ago!

Thank you for visiting,

Good Morning, Dear Carolyn!

What a beautiful idea; that sounds so wonderful! I would love to be there to help you & meet Barbara. It makes me want to hop a plane to join you. It is a great thing that you are doing; & even though I can't be there in person this year, I will be there in spirit. And, so, I would like to make a donation to your afternoon tea fundraiser to help the people of Ukraine. I pray that you raise a lot & you have lots of sunshine on the day of your event. I will be in touch soon!

Wishing you a beautiful day,

It sounds wonderful and fun! I wish I could be there too, but live way across the US on the west coast. I'm sure you and Barbara will make it a beautiful time.. and how generous and good of you to donate the proceeds to the Ukraine. I'll love watching you prepare! Marilyn
