Early this morning we were 
out in the garden early.

My garden is now just short of one year
old so I am not expecting too much but I
love it.  Of course, I am still buying plants
instead of depending on maturity on 
my own.

Everything was quiet in the garden....the squirrels were busy eating...we spoil them with walnuts...all 8 squirrels......yes I count them every morning.  Actually, when we get up at 6:30 AM there are always 1 or 2 waiting at the back door.  When I open the door I have to stop them from coming in the kitchen.  Have you ever heard that song "The Day the Squirrel Came to Church"? I can tell you I don't want a squirrel running around my house!

Bernideen, what a nice idea to treat the squirrels. Mrs. Tabitha and Jeremias Fisher will love to dine with them. Thank you for the nice phtotos, I always adore this crocheted pansy doilies. The china is lovely as always.
Greetings, Johanna

Hi Bernideen,
What a lovely tea with the little squirrels as guests! I so enjoy watching those little critters. Your pansy tea set is so pretty and your linens are lovely. Thanks for sharing and for joining me for Tea Time; always a pleasure!

Love the vintage linens. Now how do you know there are 8 squirrels? That made me smile. I have lots of squirrels in my yard, but I couldn't possibly know how many. I know each looks alittle different, but how to remember and count them is so cute.

Your garden tea is precious, Bernideen! Love the little animals and the foxglove, the wreath on the bench. You have such attention to detail and it makes for a truly lovely post!
Hugs and blessings, Beth
