A HAPPY SUNSHINE DAY for "Tea In The Garden"

It's a wonderful sunshine day and time
to celebrate the absence of continual
rain.  That rain did cause things to
grow though and the garden is
moving along with color.  So due to
 all the rain, today is only my second
tea in the garden for this season.

I hope you came prepared to be enjoy
 tea time because we are ready and
I will let you pour yourself a cup of
tea and please help yourself to
some Strawberry and Cream Scones!

Last month, when I had my first
tea in the garden this year, I shared a
purple butterfly quilt.  Today I am sharing
 another Butterfly one that I love.  

If you would like to make
 these scones
the recipe is here!
I used 1/2 cup milk and
1/2 cup heavy cream because
I did not have any buttermilk.

I found this sweet teaset
at a favorite antique mall
in St. Louis.  (Warson Woods) 
 It is English Chintz.  
The spout is chipped
and it shows lots of wear but
I loved it just the same!

I hope your springtime is coming
along!  I am very happy
to see sunshine again!

My tea cups are English!  

This is my 9th summer to share "Tea In 
The Garden" vignettes with you.  I no longer
 have a linky party but will continue sharing my own posts throughout the summer.

Your garden is looking lovely! I love a good tea time in the garden. We had such a rainy year, last year, and this year has been pretty rain as well. Hard to squeeze in tea in the garden, but I'm hosting my mother and her friends on Friday, and I'm hoping to host it outside under the maple trees!

This is lovely, Bernideen, especially the butterfly quilt! I have one made by my mother and cherish it, I think it's an unusual pattern. Can you please share where you sourced the warmer under your teapot? I have looked for one for some time, and the only things I can find online are too modern-looking. Thanks! Cheryl King

Hi Bernideen,
I love your Tea in the Garden! Oh my that Chintz teaset is amazing! So gorgeous! I'm so glad that you are still doing a Tea in the Garden. I had hoped to do one too but the rain has stopped me today. Take care! Karen
