Patio Tea and Roses

My roses are doing so good this year,
it must be due to all the rain we've been
getting and maybe by cutting them back
in the early spring, helped too.

 I am really enjoying them. I cut a few and
made an arrangement for my tea on the Patio.

 Last year they had single petals, but this
year look how many there are on that rose.

 I was in Hobby Lobby the other day,
   looking for material to cover my dining room chairs, look what I found!

 I didn't get any fabric for my chairs, but I did 
buy this.

 I was so excited.
 I got a yard to use as a table cloth.
Maybe I should have gotten more! huh!
It would make pretty throw pillows.

 These nice days with warm air and a cool breeze, 
I sat up my tea on the patio.

I love to eat at Panera Bread, while there (the day 
I found the fabric) I bought some extra scones 
to bring home with me.

Blueberry, Triple Berry, Orange, and an
Apple Cinnamon Muffin. 
That muffin was so good I couldn't wait to
take a bite out of it.

My hubby loved the Orange Scone the best, so
he got them.

Have a Blessed Day!

  2. Very pretty Roses, mine aren't doing so good.. I think the dirt isn't good enough.. so I believe I need to fertilize them.. I love love the fabric.. it's adorably cute.. Happy Monday with love Janice

  3. Your roses are beautiful, and I love the tablecloth. It frames the tea and scones. I would pick the orange one too, but am sure they were all tasty!

  4. Your roses are beautiful and I love Panera Bread. Their desserts are the best. Your tablecloth is lovely and perfect for tea. Have a wonderful day... :)

  5. Such a lovely tea time, Syl - and I adore your new fabric made into a tablecloth - makes such a pretty background for your lovely roses and china. I am just now getting the red leaves that turn into buds on my roses. We cut them way back in early spring too and it looks as though that's just what they needed. I am excited as we learn to become better gardeners and see results fast.

    Hope you had a nice holiday weekend. Have a great one going forward too.
