A Gardening Tea for Mom's Day


When I asked my Mom what she would like to do for Mother's Day
she said she would like to spend time planning the new garden in 
her side yard.  So instead of going out for a Mother's Day brunch ...




we will be visiting nurseries, garden shops, pouring over garden
books and magazines and maybe even getting our hands dirty.  
But we have to have some festivity too, so I have planned a tea party
and we will have a garden salad, some little rolls and of course tea.



We both like to work in the garden, so it should be a fun day.




The weather has been so beautiful that it is hard to stay inside.




I hope that you are enjoying beautiful weather too!

Bentley and I are joining ~

  7. Oh this sounds like a perfect Mother's day to me, if i were the mother or the daughter. My mother is dead, and mother's day is still a bittersweet day for me, but what a lovely day you have planned. I love the pictures too, they inspire me to consider gardens I am in the midst of re-designing and working.Happy Mother's day!

    do wash your hands before you sit down to tea.
    dirt would not look nice on the shortbread for heavens sake.

  36. Hello Susan! Thank you for visiting and becoming a follower. From what I've seen here it looks to be a bit of country cottage, how pretty. I see you have a Yorkie too, aren't they the sweetest little dogs, I have two. I will be sure to come back when I have more time. Your plans on how to spend Mother's Day with your mom sounds perfect.

  41. What a beautiful setting! I have a similar teapot and you have inspired me!

    I have a praise in that our home has officially sold. I now have just 32 to days to find a home, pack and move. A little pressure? :) We put a bid on a home yesterday that will give "The Money Pit" a run for it's money.
    I wanted to let you know that I so appreciate all of your support and kind comments and if I am absent the next few weeks from your blog please know I will return soon.

    For whomever you nurture, have a happy and blessed Mother's Day.

  53. This is a wonderful way to celebrate the day with your mother. My husband has always, instead of just buying me a bunch of flowers, planted a garden of some kind for me. He says, "That way, you have flowers all the time!" Smart guy, don't you think?

  54. Looks like a beautiful day. Happy Mother's Day to both of you.
