Yesterday I accidentally pushed one little button the wrong way on my camera and it makes such a difference when it is in the correct position!  Welcome, to my Tea In The Garden -  the second time around.  

Today is a redo of yesterday's Tea In The Garden!

 If you haven't linked yet,  please scroll down and link below on yesterdays post where I featured 3 blogging friend's beautiful garden teas from last week:  

Artful Affirmations
Lavender Cottage
Karen's Cottage and Castle

I had company till yesterday so it is quiet again at my house this morning.  Please pour yourself a cup of tea in one of these English Teacups and stroll around the garden. I love this morning time as the sun rises.

We had some rain here this week which was good but sadly, some mud slides and Fountain Creek filled with mud and ashes from 
last year's fires and debris. Manitou Springs is a muddy mess but they are cleaning it up.  It's charming to have a building right beside a mountain stream - until something like this happens.

I  recently found this little pitcher and the heart plate while out antiquing:

A lovely table setting with some pretty roses. I see the white swan has appeared again, it adds an elegant touch and I like your newfound treasures.

Great find on the pitcher and heart plate Bernideen. 2nd time around was a winner. The photos are fab! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Kathy said...

this is exquisite, Bernideen. The effects of the fire and then rain can be devastating - people do show their resilience and determination to make a go of living in these beautiful places. So love your new pitcher - your tea in the garden looks so inviting! I am delighted that you shared with A Return to Loveliness,

Angela McRae said...
