On the First Day of Summer
We had a perfect first day of summer this weekend. The sky was clear, the temperatures moderate, for the south! I took advantage of this and set a picnic tea neath the dappled shade of the Cypress tree.
I set out a rose covered comforter and brought out the pink picnic basket -actually it was green and I painted it a while back. Out came the floral covered covered dishes to protect the picnic fare – and for comfort and entertainment – Dearests vintage radio and lots of pillows.
These sweet rose covered teacups hang neatly next to a patinaed tea set – love this set gifted to me by my eldest daughter.
Behind the tea setting and the bench is to me a perfect summer combination of flowers – daisies, purple coneflower, blackeye susan and daylilies – I can see them from my bedroom windows and they delight me each day.
On the rose covered quilt I placed a picnic basket and a serving tray ready for the picnic.
Some may want cold tea instead of hot tea – I am ready for them with these lovely pink goblets. I love the fragrance of roses and lavender combined – my garden is filled with this combination – along with the Magnolia tree and the Gardenias – love the fragrance of summer.
I moved tha Adirondak bench to use a seating – I could add the ones on the front porch, if need be – or guests could recline on the quilt with a pillow or two for comfort.
Dearest loves vintage radios – the ones he has do work and it is fun to use them.
More rose covered dishes and rose covered silverware – I love how dishes and silverware are so beautiful – pieces of artwork themselves.
On the bed tray I placed another covered dish and a sweet bowl – for fruit.
I am enjoying the first days of spring at A Delightsome Life. This year our summer is filled with rain and milder temps – I’ll relish this as long as it lasts.
How did you spend the first day of summer? I hope you thoroughly enjoy your days and they’re filled with blue skies, fragrant flowers and the song of the birds…I appreciate your visit.
