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.



  1. Dear Janet:
    Out in the garden - a real garden already? That's wonderful and it does look so pretty with the rose bouquet!

  2. Wonderful roses! What a such beautiful table! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh wow, my friend! Last month it was 70°!! Oh well, soon it'll be great again for a lovely Spring, para que mi amiguita preciosa haga mesas tan soñadas !
    You know, you always make me want to go thru the computer and have a cuppa tea in your beautiful settings with that gorgeous china, how elegant!
    Have a wonderful week sweet 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,

  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.

  7. Just pretty !!! Here in France Spring want to be desired but is in the air !!!

  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

  9. Janet, I so want to come join you in your lovely garden. How beautiful! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  10. This setting is very calming and I can imagine sitting there with a friend sharing quiet conversation with a few laughs thrown in.

  11. Oh how I would love to enjoy an afternoon in your gorgeous garden!!! So beautiful! Happy Spring!!

  12. This is an absolutely beautiful Tablescape perfect for a fun ladies luncheon! The attention to detail is so welcoming! Love the pastel colors!

  13. So sweet and serene...beautiful!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  14. Janet this table setting and scene is oozing with cottage romance. It looks like something out of one of my favorite period style TV series.

    We were hit yesterday with about one foot of snow again. Just when it was starting to melt... boom... We have several feet yet, so spring blooms is a long way off for us.

    Today your post was featured on my features for Thursday Favorite Things. Just a note about the link party- Our scheduled time for going live is now at 7 a.m MST instead of Wednesday evenings.

    Thank you for sharing with us. Your post is Pinned in our Thursday Favorite Things group board.


    1. Hello Olivia,

      Sorry for my delayed response. I have been so busy lately... I am just catching up with my emails.

      Thank you for paying me such high compliment. To be compared to a TV series is truly an honor. I hope you are all done with the snow by you. Spring is still on and off here... I am definitely looking forward to warmer days in our garden.. I have had enough o f the cold and gloomy days already.

      Thank you also for the feature.. I am very grateful.
