Tea With Rose And Garden Rabbits

Hello tea and garden friends!  Last week I had tea with Rose that lives in my front yard.  Today I had tea with Rose in my side yard, also named Ramblin Red.  Both are Canadian Explorers that do well with our sub zero winters.







As soon as I got the table set  my garden rabbits came for tea.  I guess they heard there was a Beatrix Potter celebration going on at Bernideen's Tea In The Garden party!












Peter Rabbit was interested in the fairy house!








My teapot and creamer are made in Japan, and at $3.98 I couldn't resist bringing them home.








The  orphan teacup and dessert plate are marked Meakin, and the saucer is marked Japan.








It is a beautiful day again for tea in the garden.











We are still having rhubarb from  the garden.  Rhubarb pie a favorite!











Thank you for visiting me for tea in my garden and celebrating Beatrix Potter 150th anniversary!  Have a wonderful weekend and next week too!

I will be joining Bernideen's Tea In The Garden, TTCG blog party, and Sandi's  No Place Like Home party.

Oh my Nancy:
Look at all those bunnies. That is darling. I have real live ones in my garden every morning and evening and they are actually naughty. They think I have a salad bar here. When they get tired of the birdseed that falls on the ground they mosey over to the coneflowers, babys breathe and daisies. I planted a wildflower and they loved that one! Your table sure looks cute with that little house and bunny. I love your roses. They are amazing. Thanks for participating, linking and inspiring.

What a joyful birthday celebration! Your garden is just beautiful! So nice to see flowers and greenery as we are still in the midst of a drought. So glad the bunnies joined the party too. How could they not? It's Beatrix Potter's birthday after all! What amazing finds you discovered with the Japanese teaware. The coffee pot is quite lovely. Thank you so much for sharing this happy occasion!

Oh Nancy, more spectacular roses in your cottage garden to enjoy! You know how much I love your pretty garden settings, and this one is so sweet to honor Beatrix Potter's birthday. Isn't your vintage tablecloth a beauty? Peter Rabbit and I both are loving your fairy house and of course your tea service is so pretty, along with your lace trimmed napkin. Happy tea in the garden, sweet friend!
