Tea in Martha's Garden



           Hello everyone,

After spending several hours working in the 
garden on this beautiful day I decided it was
time for a tea break.

This secluded spot in our garden is
my favorite place to have tea at this
time of the year as it has lots of color
and fragrance along with bird songs.
The garden statue was named Martha
      so this little garden was called after her.

Tulips, daffodils,virginia bluebells,
hyacinths,violets are the main show
in here now.

                                                                           Peeking over the old picket fence.

                                                                               The Star Magnolia has been
                                                                               blooming for awhile now.
                                                                               I picked a colorful bouquet.

                                                                             Tea Time.
                                                                                   


                                                               Well, now that I am rested up (almost)
                                                                          I have a few more things to do in the
                                                                          garden if I can get my back to cooperate!

                                                                                                    Thank you for stopping by,

                                                                                                                       Carolyn

Sunshine Yellow Garden Tea




                 Hello everyone,

               I hope you are enjoying a beautiful
          sunny weekend as we are here.

               This afternoon I set up for tea in the
               garden as it has warmed up here and
          all the spring bulbs are blooming.
                                                                                   
                             The Hillside Garden is awash
                                            with color.....mainly a mix of daffodils.


There is no shortage of blooms
           for bouquets from now until October.


                           Sunny yellow china for our tea.

                            It is so nice to be able to have tea
     in the garden again.

An old garden chair holds
my bouquet of daffodils.


                        Well, I am off to enjoy a lazy afternoon
                   with a book and another cup of tea.

                   It is our Victoria Day weekend here so
                     I hope my fellow Canadians enjoy their
long weekend.

Take care,

               Carolyn
