Afternoon In The Garden

Happy Sunday friends.  I hope you are all having a restful day.

Today, I am sharing a few photos that I shot in our garden last month when the temperatures were in the 70's believe it or not.  I was so excited about the spring like weather that I rushed to our garden to set-up a pretty table to enjoy a cup of tea and a few sweet treats with my husband.  

Even though there were no pretty flowers adorning the landscape, it felt wonderful to be able to spend an a few hours in the garden.  Having clear blue skies and feeling the warmth of the sun was plenty for this gal to be grateful for.  
What is it about the spring that makes us so excited???  I guess it is the promise of natures rebirth and the warm sunny days that makes everyone smile....





















Days after these sweet photos were taken, we were hit with a winter blizzard. The ground is still covered with snow even though spring begins tomorrow.  Like it or not, we must respect mother nature's will and so we begin dreaming of spring again.

Thank you for being here today.  I wish you a lovely week.


Janet

  4. Dearest Janet
    Your pictures are so lovely. And what a wonderful afternoon you and your husband had. It's so crazy that one day you sit in the garden and think it's spring, the next day you have snow...
    But it's so good you enjoyed the lovely day.

    Wish you a wonderful new week.

  5. Dear Janet,
    glad to hear that you had a spring-like day in your garden! I am also looking forward to spring, being happy for every warm day. I really enjoyed your pictures of this lovely decorated table! I especially like your tureen filled with these beautiful roses. I have a tureen similar to yours and too love using it as a vase. I hope the cold weather will soon pass, and you can enjoy more lovely warm spring days!
    Best wishes,
    Lisa

  6. Such a pretty spring table! We had spring-like weather a couple of weeks ago, then snow and cold again - I think spring may really be on the way now.

  8. The weather has been a fickle ....! This spring has certainly tried my patience, but then it is only the middle of March so what do we expect---tea in the garden, that's what. Such a pretty setting you have made here, sigh. Soon we need Spring Soon! Sandi
