A LOVING BIRDS TEA for "Tea In The Garden"

Sunday on Mother's Day - we had our
very first Hummingbird arrive by our deck.

It seems like a good time to celebrate
all the wonderful birds we love!

We have lovely singing house wrens
 in 3 birdhouses hanging in our yard
 and there is a Nuthatch in the teapot
birdhouse......I can hear tiny babies inside.

The Spider Wort was from my
 Daughter In Law last year.
All the flowers she gave me to
help me get started in a new
garden - are doing well.

I am happy to report there are no 
screaming "Chorus" frogs in
our pond right now. 

If you would like to join me by posting a link
to your tea post - just link at the bottom.

I always enjoy sharing at:


  1. Your teapot birdhouse is adorable. Maybe my favorite thing spotted all week! Glad the birds are all hanging with you and not here in NE Texas trying to make a nest on my front porch.

  2. Your garden is looking lovely Bernideen! A perfect spot for tea!

  3. I always love seeing pictures of your pretty yard, Bernideen, and your lovely bouquets that you fix for teatime. How sweet to hear the birds chirping and seeing hummingbirds coming to your garden. Thank you for hosting and enjoy the rest of the week.

  4. I am delighted with so many beauty!Love everything but especially the wonderful teapot!Thanks for sharing and hosting !Hugs,Maristella.

  5. There is always so much "pretty" to look at that I hardly know where to look first. LOVE all your pieces and that bluebird tablecloth is just lovely.
    Are you SURE you aren't missing that frog chorus? lol xo Diana

  6. What a delightful garden tea! I always enjoy seeing your gorgeous flowers and charming birdhouses. Thank you for hosting and enjoy the rest of the week!

  7. Absolutely beautiful, as always Bernideen! You are such a good floral designer!!So glad you had your first hummer visit, they are so cute! Spiderwort can really take over if you don't watch them, but they are unique.
    Talk to you soon,

  8. Bernideen, I'd so enjoy a nice sit in your garden, listening to the birds, looking at the flowers, sipping tea ... aaaaaahhh. (My cake today pairs beautifully with a strong cup of Assam with a tiny splash of milk.)

  9. Hi Bernideen. I just love having nesting birds...we have some in a birdhouse too and some swallows under the eaves. We should move them, but don't have the heart to! Love your peonies and pretty linen topper. Your garden is amazing! We have just spotted hummingbirds this year in the lilacs, so that is always wonderful! Have a wonderful week and thanks for hosting.
