Welcome to tea my friends, I'm so happy you popped by. The weather today went up to 17 degrees! Could it be that spring has finally arrived?
Since the weather has been most unpredictable ... As I set off for my afternoon walk, I packed a little bag with some tea and goodies. After all one needs to remember to enjoy the moments.
Despite the warm temperature it is still a little crisp ...
and the hot tea was a wonderful welcome after my walk. So I set out some goodies on the gazebo table.
I'll pour you a cup too! These great Lenox mugs ( from my dear friend Nan) are perfect size for an early spring tea in the garden.
As I sat in the gazebo ... with a view of the garden area, it occurred to me how quickly things change.
April 9-10th 2013, after a couple of warm temperature days,
Mr. G. decided to set the outside furniture in place.
This is what we woke up to on April 11th, 2013 ...
How quickly things can change.
Our lives can be much like the weather. Clear, bright, warm and sunny
and than without much warning become grey, dark, and gloomy.
The drab looking gardens will be beaming with beautiful flowers in a couple of weeks. And only days earlier the ground was covered with traces of snow ~
and then just as quickly change and make way for wonderful new growth. Just like the first signs of re-birth and growth in the garden. Under the debris of a harsh cold winter ... new growth is pushing itself through. Here shata daisies, tulips, and the first sprouts of the peonies are making their way.
If you are going through a bit of bad weather ... know that it will pass and new wonderful adventures are just around the corner.
CHANGE is certain ...
