Tea With The Purple Phlox

Happy tea time this week!  My creeping Phlox are blooming at the farm cottage, a pretty setting for a outdoor tea.









I've set the little side table on the path of my flower bed.  I chose one of my favorite teapots and filled it with Twinings Lady Gray tea.









The sweet teacup is named Victoria, marked C&E, bone china, England.  Whenever I use it, I think of my dear niece Vicky.









Enjoying a book about garden fairies.  I like to think I have them living in my flower beds.









My little cherub birdbath that the birds and other tiny creatures enjoy.









My lilacs are just starting to open.  Next week I'll share another lilac tea at the farm cottage.





Thank you so much for stopping by!  Wishing you a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following  parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Tea In The Garden, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, and A Return To Loveliness.

How lovely! Your flowers are beautiful! What a delightful setting! I know how much you must be enjoying the beautiful weather and your flowers after such a long hard winter in the UP! I love to think of fairies in the garden too.

What a gorgeous setting for tea, Nancy! Phlox is lovely and I adore lilacs! Your book sounds really sweet and the teapot and teacup are very pretty. I believe fairies do live among the posies! Thank you for joining me for tea today and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,

Ooh Nancy, I always love visiting your outdoor teas. I can almost smell the lovely flowers. I wish I could be there to sip some tea with you. Your cherry blossom tea is beautiful, too. The red transferware is a favorite of mine.

Now this is tea in the garden. I love the pink phlox and blue forget-me-nots that are sprinkled throughout. A beautiful bouquet of lilacs that will get even better as the buds open and a sweet fairy book. I'm sure there are fairies in your garden, you only have to believe. :-)
Have a great week.

Your phlox is so lush and lovely! Perfect spot for tea. Love the fairy book ... perhaps the fairies in your garden are reading over your shoulder. Lovely teapot and teacup. Happy Tea Day!

Fabulous! The phlox are just the perfect spot for a tea setting. Your garden of flowers is stunning. The sweet pattern Victoria is the perfect cup and saucer for this garden tea party! Have a wonderful week in your garden with the fairies for I believe they live in mine, too!

Your tea is beautiful, with the purple Phlox and lilac. The picture with the statute in front with the trees in the background is such a lovely shot! That book looks like an ideal read in such an idyllic setting.

Oh Nancy,
Where do I begin? Such beauty! I love your white ironstone bistro set against the greenery and Phlox. The Lilacs in the white pitcher look so perfect with the pretty teacup and dear teapot. These pics should be in a magazine! Thank you for visiting me! Happy June! Karen

Oh, so lovely! Your teapot and teacup compliment the flowers so nicely, too. I love the purple phlox and lilacs, but the little blue flowers are sweet, too. A beautiful setting for tea!

This is such a beautiful setting for tea. I love the purple that you used including the lilacs. Very sweet and charming. The tea cup is so dainty and delicate. I may have to look up that pattern. Thank you for sharing such a pretty post.
