OUT ON THE PATIO for "Tea In The Garden"

We have enjoyed a lovely summer in
 Missouri and now the nights are cooling off.  
Over labor day we made a quick trip to
Des Moines, Iowa but mostly this summer,
we just enjoyed being home.  Here is a little
tea table I set up for us outside by the Koi pond.

 I thought I'd share the teapot
 I found in Valley Junction in
West Des Moines.

It is called Canadian Rose by Royal Albert.

As you can see we have had very little rain lately!

I love that the robin's won't be
leaving for winter but the hummingbirds -
which have been so fun - will be going
south soon.

Miss Tabitha is especially proud of the foxgloves
she has been growing from seed this summer:

And now back to our tea on the patio.....

Here is a closer view
 of the

I have been learning to sew tea cozies and
this is one I made last week for myself - it
is on the teapot I showed you above.

I have been praying for all the people
who have experienced these tragic
hurricanes down south. 
 I hope you have too.


  1. Bernideen, your new teapot and tea cozy are gorgeous! I really like the shape of that teapot, and the spout looks like one that would pour properly. Today I linked a cookie from last week, and tomorrow I'll come back and link this week's post, another teatime treat.

  2. Bernideen, you have such a beautiful garden and I love your white picket fence. We are not allowed to have fences here in our neighbourhood unfortunately. Your new teapot is lovely and it's wonderful that you were able to visit your family over the long weekend. I have shared this week's and last week's post. Hope that is OK. Thank you for inviting us to tea.

  16. Bernideen, I'm so happy to have a post to share with your garden tea party theme :) I just love your garden, and the delightful garden tea party that you had! And what a neat idea to make such a darling tea cozy! For you know, sipping tea in the garden, it does get cold quickly, so a tea cozy really a necessity for these garden parties, lol!
