Welcome to "Tea In The Garden" which I host for those who love tea time. Do you?
Like many other bloggers who work, I have found it difficult to spend time blogging this summer. There seem to be so many things to do and directions to go.
Last weekend we went for the first time to the huge Denver, Colorado Flea Market. It was very hot and sunny and of course we got sunburned. Many people carried umbrellas for protection from the sun - but not us. I found some fun bargains.
Queen Anne's lace I have from
seeds I picked in Missouri. We just
don't have this here in Colorado.
I brought out 4 teacups so that you would have a nice selection from which to choose the one you would like to use for your tea.
As I was taking pictures a hummingbird was here but he was also gone every time I tried to take his picture.
I think he was camera shy! I have a lot of silver artemesia this year (silver tall plant). Years ago I used it in dried arrangements and after throwing pieces in the garden it seems to be everywhere.
I made a bouquet last night and put some Rowan berries in it. It is a secret message that fall is coming.
The yellow flower below is tansy (herb family) which also came up after I threw some in one of the front yard flower beds years ago. I had used these dried flowers in arrangements for years. I will warn you the roots are very hard to get out so don't put it anywhere you don't expect to to spread. I don't want it anywhere else than that one spot.
