Tea in the garden






This tea isn't quite in our garden, but in a nice shady & cozy favorite outdoor spot at the nest.


A loved one made the rose chintz apron for me as a surprise! (hanging on chair on right)





Raspberry powdered tea cookies and a simple black tea await.

The teapot, teacup and cookie platter and cake plate is all rose chintz as well.

This pic was taken a few years ago - way before blogging and better camera. Apologies.


Please join in for Bernideen's tea in the garden linky party.

  13. This is a darling place for a simple but oh, so elegant tea! Sitting outside and having teal al fresco with that billowy sheer curtain would be the perfect way to spend a couple of hours!
    Isn't Chintz the most girly pattern! It is perfect for tea! LOVE the apron. I am such an apron gal!
    I love to visit Finch Rest!
