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.
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.
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.
Dearest loves vintage radios – the ones he has do work and it is fun to use them.
