"Tea is drunk to forget the din of the world." ~T'ien Yiheng
In my garden are many flowers...
A lavender hydrangea of the Endless Summer type
I work at changing some of my Endless Summer hydrangeas from pink to blue by altering the pH of the soil from alkaline (pink) to acid (blue). Note above: blossoms pinkish-lavender on the inside with blue edges - blooms in transition
I have tea set up for us on the patio.
This is the patio, under the deck, in Sunsplash Gardens (Ron and I have recently named our gardens). I've set up a tea tray with my Dutch teapot and a 'Liberty Blue' tea cup and saucer.
Also in my garden: rhubarb, and I've made a dessert bar called Rhubarb Meringue.
Paul Revere's ride is featured on the 'Liberty Blue' cup.
Rhubarb Meringue - to increase its deliciousness, add ice cream or whipped topping. I've shared the recipe below.
A few more garden views for you to enjoy:
