I am so glad to be back for Tea in the Garden on Saturday and as usual my garden is a bit shadowy in the mornings....actually the steam was rising off the fences as the air was cool as the sun was rising.

I gladly accepted the assistance of my "maid" in setting things up.

We have had rain almost every day lately which is amazing and it is in the forecast for the next week.  The tourist aren't really thrilled about that but they love our cool nights in the 65-70 degree range. 

I hope you are enjoying your summer with tea because it is passing by quickly!

Peter Rabbit wouldn't miss my tea for anything and always loves to show off his prize winning cabbages that are forming nicely - well maybe the one in the front has a few holes in it from "someone".

I wish you a lovely tea filled weekend!

Hello Bernideen,
I always love to have tea in your Beatrix Potter garden. It is like a fairy tale with the little squirrels. Your new tea pot is so charming and the tea trolley is fabulous. Thank you for hosting this nice event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Bernideen, your garden teas are always beautiful! I wish that the temps would drop down at night here. We are still roasting.

I am amazed at how creative you are to keep coming up with these beautiful "Tea in the Garden" posts. And by the way, if you'd send some of that rain over to Georgia we'd be much obliged!
