Tea and tarts by the flower bed

Tea before planting

Tea on the grass
Peonies make the best centerpiece

Pink watering cans make garden work more fun

Yum-- tarts and bunny cookies--someone bit the ears off!

Pink roses greet you at the gate

Tarts for moi and Pink Boy

In the flower bed another peony

I bent my rules we used paper napkins

So many things to plant yet

Tin plates are great for picnics--they look like Sevres china

Fabric covered tray and jacquard francaise linens

Sweet peas on my picnic baskStill like to use napkin rings

Tablescape Thursday

join Susan at BNOP:

The weather is so mild and the flowers are just bursting open all around my house I can't bear to be inside on days like this. I had some planting to do so why not make it fun?!
Pink pentas and some other little annuals to fill in color areas will not take too long to plant.

In meantime I made a pot of soothing jasmine tea and some strawberry tarts found their way into the house. We had some leftover bunny cookies too--someone bit the ears off before I took the photos! Hmm

Have a Pink day!

Pentas to plan

Another view of the boarder
