Today, I'm sitting out the front on our bench and using a teacup by Colclough that has blue cornflowers on it.
The grocery store had a 2 quart container of blueberries on sale this week so blueberry coffee cake it is with our tea.
A tiny bouquet of clematis flowers from 'The President'.
As the evening is cooling off it's the perfect time for tea and cake after dinner.
Just beside the bench which would be behind this photo is the butterfly garden that runs down the side of the driveway. It contains larval host plants such as pearly everlasting for the American lady and two varieties of milkweed for the monarchs. The nectar plants are different types of echinacea, bee balm, butterfly bushes, garden phlox, liatris, lavender, many asters and some daylilies.
