People have told me for years how there are many hummingbirds here along the front range of the Rocky Mountains. I just never had them in my yard. Well, actually, last summer I saw one on Mother's Day and then never again..... until this summer!
It took me a while to understand that
underneath the huge Colorado Blue
Spruce, they can't see the feeder from
up above so this was my problem.
I have a couple of pairs coming and going to the flowers and the feeder (two different sizes of birds) and it is so fun to watch them about the garden.
Last Sunday afternoon I found my first Shelley English teacup and saucer at an indoor flea market in Longmont, Colorado. The pattern is called "Maytime". I thought it was a bargain at $10.00 because Shelley tea cup and saucer sets sell for $50.00 - $60.00 at the antique malls and I saw this one on ebay for $99.99. Oh my!
WELCOME TO TEA IN THE GARDEN!
Come on in the garden and pour yourself a cup of tea please! I hope you can relax for a few moments before your day begins.
I also found this sweet topper that I loved with 4 napkins. I can't decide if it is dogwood or cherry blossoms or ? What's your vote?
We have had more rain lately than in a very long time and we feel very blessed as this will help our drought situation. I am thankful.
