Morning moments in the garden are wonderful
......especially with a cup of tea!

And time to leisurely flip  through a few old Victoria Magazines to find some inspiration.....

Some lingering flowers in the garden mixed with 
herbs make a scentful arrangement combined with the smell 
of basil and dill nearby:

I have invited one of my dolls to join us!

Please pour yourself some tea and relax a while!

Our forecast today is for 80 degree temperatures getting cooler the next few days.  Lovely weather to sit outside and daydream.

I am joining with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday and also with Kathy at A Delightsome Life today!

Have a delightful week!

Hello Bernideen
You've set a nice autumn tea outside - I can't imagine an 80 degree temperature at this time of year.
The bouquet you put together is delightful and I would really like to sit and relax over tea with you right about now.

Hello Bernideen,
once more you set a table with love. Such a nice spot to sit and the china is again breath taking. I love the pumpkin cushion and the little doll is so sweet made. Thank you, Bernideen, for having me for this pretty tea.
Best greetings, Johanna

Good morning Bernideen,
Your garden looks so lovely and peaceful. We are having a doozy of a storm right now with heavy rain and very high winds. It's supposed to get worse too.
Sitting outside and sipping tea in your garden would be so lovely. Your linens are lovely and the tea set, beautiful! Thank you for joining me for tea and have a delightful day.

Beautiful photographs... love the floral bouquet! Your place is so inviting.... I would simply love to sit down and enjoy a morning with you accompanied with a cup of tea of course. Our temps are a chilly 50 degrees right now, but hoping to warm up a bit in another day or two.

What a delightful way to enjoy tea! Such a beautiful setting. So elegant and inviting. I just want to pull up a chair and pour a cup for myself :-)
