The holiday weekend is upon us here in the States. In Michigan it is not only a time to remember our Veterans, but also a time for planting flowers and vegetables. Sometimes we don’t plant, but buy a planter. 😉 Actually, this one was a gift.
To keeping with the theme of the red geraniums, I have added a vintage geranium themed tablecloth, my favorite tea kettle (actually my only one), and a mug from the ship, Queen Elizabeth 2. (A garage sale find which may be as close as I’ll get to that beautiful ship).
At the top of the above photo, you may note our red hummingbird feeder. The sweet tiny little birds have begun migrating through are area. We are delighted to have them stop in our yard for a quick sip on their way up north.
There is an unopened tea envelope which was received as a promotional item when a friend and I attended the showing of the first episode from the last season of Downton Abbey. It was sponsored by our local PBS station, but I digress from the geranium theme…
I do not know if the Downton tea is available retail? Perhaps I should use it soon….
