Summer Tea

Summer is here and once again our garden is yielding beautiful surprises. This will be our third summer in this house, with a garden that is nearly at the half-century mark. I can't boast of being an excellent gardener, but someone who once lived here surely was. Every day, M-girl and I like to stroll around our property, seeing what delights are popping up.

Yesterday, she asked if she could cut a bouquet. Her stems were on the short side for the vases we had. She rummaged through the dining room hutch and decided to create a trio of sweet summer tea cup bouquets.



Now we have refreshing summer tea to enjoy!

    P.S. Those are the top two of my favorite flowers! Roses and hydrangeas, sigh…

    1. I've been dropping little hints to her that some people grow up and become florists. I could see her doing that!
