Tea On Tuesday: Blue And White Garden Tea

This morning I had tea in my cottage garden with my darling Rachel.  She is off to school at the end of next month, working a lot, and getting lots of friend time in.  I was happy to have time together, talking and enjoying the lovely scones.  Rachel is a coffee girl but she loves a good scone.

This was one of the dreams I had for my little sitting spot in the garden, to share tea and conversation amidst my lovely flowers.

  4. Your charming outdoor tea has me singing the blues!

  5. What a lovely summer moment! And blue and white are becoming one of my new obsessions, too. It's so fresh looking, isn't it?

  6. Tea is such a beautiful thing. I love it ! But when I see tea I get so happy. Enjoy those moments, how quickly they fly away. Lovely garden too. HUGS

  7. Of course I love all the blue and white. It must have cooled down a bit in order to have outside tea. The scones look yummy. Best of all time with your daughter.

  8. I think I can smell the scones! Yummy! And blue and white is a top fave colour combo! I'm sure you both had a wonderful visit over that charming tea table!

  12. Deanna, that is so beautiful! I have a love of blue and white china that must be genetic--on my mother's side.

  13. Hello! I could have sworn I've visited your blog before but after going through many of the posts I
    realized it's new to me. Anyhow, I'm certainly pleased I stumbled upon it and I'll be book-marking it and checking
