Peach Shortcake and Tea...

It's Tea Time...

(click photos to enlarge)

and it is a beautiful day,
filled with dappled sunlight ...


These mild days have me lounging in the garden again...


So today I set up tea in the gazebo,


It's nice to enjoy darker teas again...


and all the wonderful fruits at harvest time..

I made a mini peach shortcake...


A loose bouquet of  Feverfew in a petite urn
graces the table...


The soft sun of late summer
is a beautiful thing...

Today I am joining these friends...
Lady Katherinefor Tea Time Tuesday
Wanda Lee for Tea for Two
Paperbutterfly for Teapots and Tea Things

Thanks for joining me today!

Blessings,

Hi Bella
Sounds like a lovely lazy afternoon tea in the gazebo - count me in!
I spent the day working in the back gardens and lost all track of time - even missed my afternoon tea today.

How pretty was that and how relaxing!! I just loved it and envied you!! I was at work all day with very wired 3rd graders!! Your day sounds so much calmer!!

Hello Bella- Beautiful girl! Your tea time is lovely...and the sweet little feverfew bouquet is just that- sweet and lovely. I have never had Peach Tea but then I am a coffee drinker. And, although MyHero drinks tea..he would probably think he was a sissy if he drank Peach tea! lol Guess you can keep all our Peach tea for yourself! Hugs to you~ Diana

It is really a lovely place to have a cup of tea. The last photo of your post is very well done, the faded light with the well balanced colors made it very harmonious.
