Tea In The Garden

Hello, hope you all had a good week and thank you for visiting.  My flowers are blooming away and I'm enjoying them so much.  For tea this week I placed a table by my border of flowers.





 

I'm using a baby quilt I bought from a friend when I first was to become a Grandma.  My Mom gave me the teapot (no markings on it), it makes a good pot of tea.  The teacup I recently bought at a antique shop in Niagara Falls, Canada.  The marking on the back is Colclough, made in England.  All of the teacups were reduced to $5.00, so I came home with six different ones which I'll share with you another time. I've had the pretty sugar bowl without its mate for a long time. No marking on it either.

  





Lots of blooming flowers - Lithrum, phlox, daisies, mallow, day lilies, yarrow, lambs ears, and bee balm, etc.







Thank you so much for joining me in my garden for tea and please stop by again.

I'll be joining Beverly at Pink Saturday for her special birthday celebration and these other lovely parties:
Tea Time Tuesday, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Tabletop Tuesday, Tuesday Garden Party, Tea In The Garden, A Return To Loveliness, Cottage Garden Party, Share Your Cup Thursday, Teacup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home and Feathered Nest Friday.

I love to see quilts used at tablecloths -- especially with tea! There is something so welcoming and old-fashioned about it! Lovely teacup and teapot. Your garden is lovely and I like the hat!

Hello dear Nancy,
Your tea in the garden is so lovely! You just have the perfect tea spot outdoors!
I can only imagine how peaceful it is out there when you have your tea.
Your new Colclough looks so very pretty! Lucky you to find it for so little! Can't wait to see the rest of them : )

Wow, how do you ever leave there? I guess the tea gets cold after a while and you have to go warm it. But I am just loving the garden and your table setting. I would sit and wait gladly while you refilled the tea. Ha!

What a charming setting for afternoon tea! I really don't envy anyone the THINGS they have, or any kind of possessions, but I DO covet such a beautiful garden.

Yours is simply splendid, and I know you enjoy it so much. Thank you for my own stroll through such a lovely place.
