Patriotic Tea

Hello, hope you all had a good week!  We have been having beautiful summer weather.  Seeing that the fourth of July is in a few days I thought I'd do a little patriotic theme tea this week on my deck.








I'm using my blue and white teacup made by Churchill and an old blue creamer I've had for years.  All of my white flowerpots are at the farm cottage, so I wrapped the petunias in a doily.











The roses in the background are called Ramblen Red, another Explorer rose.  My deck is two stories high and it reaches the top of the railing.  In the background you can see the gazebo covered with hops vines and bittersweet vines.  Also you can see my four square garden below the deck and my green house.








Thank you for stopping by today.  I always enjoy your visits and comments.  Hope you have a wonderful safe holiday!

I will be joining the following blog parties:  Seasonal Sundays, Make It Pretty Monday, Time Time Tuesday, Tea Cup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa T ea, and Tea Cup Thursday.

Beautiful teascape you have created on your porch. Your yard is just lovely, so much green, you must be getting rain or watering a lot.

What a pretty patriotic table setting. I noticed the little blue cream pitcher right away. We had one just like it when I was growing up many many years ago.
I like the view from your deck too.
Happy 4th!
