hens and chicks tea


I'm taking my tea in the company of hens and chicks
the weather has finally turned summery
and the garden is where we all want to be

august is a special time for us
this year we will have been married a sweet sixteen years
and it's been eleven years since we moved to the pacific northwest
it seems that we mark the years with months of august


a life without love is like a year without summer
- swedish proverb


what is your tea today?


thank you, as always, for stopping by!
happy tuesday and happy august too!

Happy Anniversary this month! And I'm happy to be sitting down and visiting you for tea -- I'm just home from a brief vacation and you're the first I'm visiting!

Hi Kimmie, those hens and chicks would actually survive in my part of the world. They look so sweet in that teacup. Unfortunately, it likely would not fare as well with all the dust and dirt and grime that we deal with. :/ Can I come live in your garden?

Join me for strawberry tea and dessert.

Gotta love the summer of love. 16 of them, even. Unless of course you are from the middle of the country where it's steaming. Sorry I haven't been around this week. I've been busy trying to make art instead of sitting in front of my cool computer. Gotta love the hens and chicks. They are quite lovely and would be a nice touch for your garden blog, too.

My tea is old this week:

I love hens and chicks! But alas, they don't grow well here in the heat. I do have a couple, but they usually don't last. Happy tea!

I love hens and chicks. I use to grow them when we lived in N. Dakota!! I was amazed that such a plant could survive in the harshness of that northern climate but they always grew so beautifully there.
Happy late T on T!! I didn't have tea yesterday but I have other things to share if you want to pop by for a quick visit.
