twilight tea

take a twilight tour around my backyard with me



these are the sweet peas
.... still blooming ....
their fragrance fills this corner of the garden





the grass is beginning to brown
these september days are warm and dry
we enjoy relaxing out here on a sunny afternoon





this is my favorite spot
under the maple tree
my weathering chair in the winter time .... a reading nook in the summer





evening is here now
my red clover tea has cooled
I think I'll go in now ... thank you for stopping by!







enjoy your tuesday!
are you having tea too?
tell us about it :)

Your teacup looks a bit Alice in Wonderlandish -- like you could jump right in!

Enjoyed the visit. I always enjoy getting out early in the day. To me it's the best time, especially now during the harvest moon. Happy tea day.

Lovely tour Kimmie! Thank you! I love your garden... Sweet peas are my birth month flower... My mom and I have tried to grow them here, but they don't do so well in this heat. Love your happy cup too! Red clover tea... sounds yummy! Happy Tea Tuesday!

I had a good chuckle at the close-ups of your tea cup touring the gardens. it reminded me of the traveling knome (sp??) from the movie Amelie.

I really enjoyed your twilight tea tour. You yard still looks SO glorious, even in the sunset. I see lavender and roses still blooming along with the sweet peas. If you took a look at my garden, all you would see is brown. Not terribly enjoyable after the summer we've had here in Kansas. It's nice to see lush, along with a bit of brown spots in your grass. Loved the tea cup as it traveled through your yard.

oh what a lovely tea and tour AND your tea cup is absolutely charming too...twilight is a magical time when light plays and things take on a different look and feel entirely

Sweet Peas are something I would really really like to be able to grow...it gets too hot here...I have fantasies about a BIG bouquet of those...I know they don't last very long in water...but well you know

Happy T to you dear Kimmie

I'm reminded of Pennsylvania Dutch art by your teacup and love red clover tea...

It's hard to fathom September is upon us and rapidly passing away...

Happiest of tea days to you.

This is my favorite time of year (and I love your rooftop sunset photo too!) Thank you for the tour! Clover tea sounds yummy (even cooled).

I am having tea today. Be prepared to practice extending your pinkie!

I love sweet peas...well the ones that have a perfume anyway, some of them don't smell at all. Your garden tour at dusk was just delightful. Love that tea cup. xx

Such a lovely tour!!! The garden DOES have a wonderful scent at twilight, and Mother Nature colors the sky so beautifully! Hugs, Terri xoxo
