Tea in the Garden: A Collection


A fun time spent setting up tea in the Garden for Bernideen's Tea Time Blog. Life has been just a little bit hectic this last month, taking up time, and yes, causing immense amounts of stress. So this moment, a single moment taken in a single day, really shows that life goes on, and that God is still not only faithful, but also good. Time spent outside does such a world of good.


One of my favorite flowers is the Iris. You know, people think they come in just a few colors, mainly shades of purple and possibly yellow, but there are so many different possibilities. For the purpose of this photo shoot, of course, I placed the tea table where we have purple irises, but I may do one with the others in a week or so.



Did you know that chive plants actually blossom? And they don't smell like chives! Those are the lovely little purple blooms you see on the left.


Such a beautiful chive blossom.


Caitlin made this lovely little wreath out of some of our dried flowers last year. It held up really well, and and I love that long shot down to the end of the yard. Don't you just love the green from all the rain?



One of my favorite teacups. I didn't always love purple flowers, but I really do now.


And blessings to all of you during this beautiful June!

  1. This looks absolutely lovely! Great pictures. I am now inspired to do a tea party... I found a pretty tea set at a thrift store, and I've been dreaming of a tea party.

    1. Thanks! It was a fun way to experiment with my newish camera. It took superb photos, better than I ever expected! I'd love to see pictures of your team if you ever set it up, Lizzie!

  4. I planted 57 irises last fall, and I'm happy to say they mostly came up! And most of them bloomed! I thought from the packaging they would be a mix of colors, but they're all deep purple with yellow accents. As purple is my favorite color, I'm not disappointed :-)

    Looks like your new camera works well!

    1. Yeah, the camera does work really well. I'm not comfortable with all the settings yet, but I'm getting there!

      My mom belongs to a local Iris society and so we go to the Iris sale every year. People separate out their bulbs and bring in the pups with photos of what the plant looks like. We have one that has been around since the 1940s! Such beautiful flowers, I love them. I'll do an Iris post sometime this month so you can see the various colors we have.
