Welcome friends to Tea in the Garden on Saturday hosted by Bernideen at her Tea Time Blog.
This bench backs on to the garden shed and faces the pond. It is a quiet corner and shady until late afternoon, the perfect place to relax with a cup of tea, scone and magazine.
We are fortunate to have a farm not far from us with a huge blueberry patch and I pick enough each fall to last us through the winter. The berries are so sweet that many don't make it to the pail and every customer has their fill while picking.
That's a nigella flower on my teacup, a sweet plant to have in a cottage garden and this variety is 'Gertrude Jekyll'.
