I'm In The Garden

Hello and welcome!
Today I thought I'd share some pictures of my flower gardens that I enjoy so much.  Help yourself to a cup of tea from my tea set I got at Cracker Barrel a few years ago and enjoy!










Flowers in the front of our home















The above picture and the one following are of my greenhouse and four square garden.



I'm so glad you came for a visit!  Hope you enjoyed  having tea with me and the tour of my flower gardens.

This week I'll be joining the following lovely parties:  Tea Time Tuesday, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Tea In The Garden, A Return to Loveliness, Cottage Garden Party, Share Your Cup Thursday, Teacup Thursday, Feathered Nest Friday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home and Show and Tell Friday.

Hi Nancy,
Your tea set is so pretty sitting there in your garden. Love the birdies on it and the tablecloth! And what a lovely garden you have too! I love the little cottage with the fairy table sitting beside it and your greenhouse is cute as a button. You certainly have a green thumb! Thank you for coming for tea and have a delightful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

I too love spending time in the garden. Yours is so gorgeous that I would linger there for hours. Love the birdie tea set. I go to Cracker Barrell now and then. Did not see that. I would have snatched it up in a hurry if I had. I always love for you to share with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann

Yarrow, Black Eyed Susans, Daisies! What a sweet tea set. I LOVE Cracker Barrel....so sad that we do not have them in Ca! I love the pancake mix from CBarrel but would have to drive several states over to get it, and Shipping is more than the mix so I go without! Thx for visiting my ALice & Rabbit Tea. :)

It looks like you have gotten rain in Michigan. So much of the midwest is in a drought. We had buckets full last night and there were some issues from the "burn scar" from the mountains and people were very concerned but mostly it all was ok for the most part. I haven't heard it rain like that for years.

Bernideen said...

i am back again - I forgot to say how perfectly beautiful your garden is - just lovely!

Lavender Cottage said...

The tea set is charming, I wish we had Cracker Barrel in Ontario. Is that a fairy house with tiny furniture out the front of it? So sweet!

I just came across your blog and it's wonderful! I have a "tea garden" in our northern Michigan cabin that aspires to be like your tea garden! Gorgeous and inspiring! I have family in the UP and visit from time to time. Have you ever been to Houghton's tea room? I look forward to seeing more tea parties in your lovely garden. Barb

Cottage and Broome said...

Love your garden, it looks like a lovely place to have tea. That little house is so sweet too, it would go good with my fairy garden. I'm from northern Michigan too, but below the bridge. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

I am here from Fishtail Cottage's Party. What a truly lovely garden you have! Thank you for sharing.

Larry said...

You have such a lovely cottage style garden and live in such a beautiful part of the country! We often take treks from our east central Wisconsin gardens to the upper peninsula... the most recent being to Copper Harbor for a few days. I hope you are having more rain and lower temps than we've been experiencing... your photos give me the impression that that might be the case.... enjoyed my visit... Larry
