Romantic Rose Garden



   Hello everyone,

I love when the roses burst into bloom
in the little enclosed garden at the south
end of The Gardener's Cottage.
So now is the best time for this little
garden. The roses are mostly Therese Bugnet
which is a good hardy roses for our climate.


                                                                      This is shot through the screen from
                                                                        inside The Gardener's Cottage.
                                                                           This garden angel was a gift
                                                                           from my children a few years ago.
Would you like a cup of tea surrounded
by the beauty and fragrance of roses?



                                                                    A bouquet of roses in
                                                                    the Gardener's Cottage.

                                                                     of the Gardener's Cottage.




                                              This morning I was taking some pics
                                                         in our Allee Garden which is pretty
                                                         now with the later lilacs etc. blooming
                                                         and the fragrance is incredible!

                                                               Just a reminder .....we are having an Open Garden
                                                         on July 4th between 6 and 8 p.m in case you would
                                                        like to visit our garden. It will look completely different
                                                        by then!

                                                                              Thanks for stopping by today!

A Summer Tea




       Hello everyone,

With the beautiful weather we are
having I am enjoying being out in
the garden as much as I can.
However, I did take time out
to enjoy some fresh biscuits
with rhubarb jam today.

                                                                           I have had these Florence  dishes
                                                                           for several years now and use them
                                                                           quite often.This is another set by
                                                                           Skye McGhie
                                                                         
    I lucked in to several of these
       cups and saucers at a thrift store.

                                                                       A bouquet of peonies and
                                                                       roses from our garden.
                                                                       Ah! peonies and roses.....
                                                                       two of my favorite flowers.




We have rhubarb in our garden
so I always make some  rhubarb
jam with it for our biscuits.
Perfect with a cup of tea!


       I took lots of photos in the garden today
 to capture the beauty for those long
winter months. 

         In a few days I will have hundreds of peony
   blossoms to enjoy in the garden or pick
   for bouquets. I better not go far without
my camera!

Thank you for popping in for
a summer tea!

Carolyn
