A PEACHY TEA for "Tea In The Garden"

I do hope your summer is going along splendidly.
Yesterday I made some Peach Tarts
 (instead of a pie)
for my "Tea In The Garden" so I hope you
are hungry.

We had a very hot day yesterday and in fact, they are saying this summer has been hotter - our first summer here too!
Please take a seat and pour yourself some tea:

I was so excited Monday morning when I noticed there were no more June Beetles or Japanese Beatles on the roses.  Maybe now I will actually get some to come to full bloom.

The bunnies are having a feast
 with the peach peelings:

I love this old teapot!

I love little drip catchers like these:

I used my Peach Pie recipe but instead of a pie, I cut out 3" rounds of the pastry dough rolled out and pressed them into a standard size muffin tin.

Bernideen, I should've been there! Peaches (yellow peaches) are my favorite fruit, and your tarts look like peach perfection! I just made and froze (unbaked) a batch of fresh peach scones I'm going to post next week. Glad those bugs are leaving your roses alone!

We've had a hot and dry summer over here too! Every August, there is a peach festival held in a nearby community. It's so popular that last year, they ran out of peaches for their sundaes! Your peach tarts look yummy and I'm admiring your brown transferwares. I'm also a fan of drip catchers. Thank you for hosting and have a great weekend, Bernideen!

Yum those peach tarts looks so good, Now I'll have to make a peach cobbler tomorrow instead of a blackberry cobbler I was going to make.
Your little tea table always looks so pretty Bernideen

I so wish I could join you for a peach tart and a cup of tea in your pretty setting, Bernideen. I'm in love with your tiered stand and your teapot, and teacup. The drip catcher is adorable. Thanks for hosting and happy weekend!

Is your pretty tea pot being held together by a string and a prayer? =D

Oh those peach tarts look so yummy! I must remember that idea!

Bernideen, oh my! I do love peach anything. Love your little tarts and your table is so pretty. Have a lovely weekend!

Your tea time is lovely as usual, my friend!

You know I have two of those wee birdie drip catchers - mine is tea stained as yours - means we're using them often (or catching drips too often most likely, eh? LOL.)

Very pretty outdoor area - makes for the perfect respite, indeed.

Have a wonderful weekend, Bernideen! Hugs! ♥

Those tarts look just scrumptious! I just made a peach pie today but your tarts look so good! It has been quite warm here also. Hoping for cooler temps next week! Have a wonderful weekend!

Your tea is lovely, Bernideen. I love your teapot and the tarts looks wonderful! I didn't do a tea post this week because of the rain and then we weren't home much. I did however make a peach cake which I may share next week. It depends on how things go. Waiting for some news; sad news. Hope your weekend is going well.

Hi Bernideen,
I love your transferware and teapot today. I have never seen drip catchers before and it is so dear with the wee bird. It has been very hot here too and I haven't been able to go outside much. Thank you for hosting Tea in the Garden. Blessings, Karen.

Everyting looks lovely. Your teapot is beautiful. I have never seen a tea drip catcher like that. Only some paper ones it is very interesting. The two bunnies are sweet. And the individual peach cups are nice idea.. Lovely post. I think we might have some sun today.. Have a great day Benideen, with love Janice

Bernideen, what a lovely spot for tea. Those little bunnies are so cute but I know they can be little rascals too. Do they eat anything besides the peach peelings?..Have a wonderful week..Judy

Your roses are lovely. I also like your sweet teapot and the Hummel figurine is orchestrating it all just wonderfully! This week, I am just dropping in for a visit. Jill

Such a lovely table for tea in the garden. But I think my favorite photo was the bunnies enjoying the peach peelings. What fun!
