Among Summer's Sweetly Scented Flowers

Hello everyone!

It's summer time!  And with such a delightful weather, what better place to have our Lemonade than Al fresco. 

 Here are beautiful gladiolas from our garden for you to enjoy . . .

To decorate the table I'm using flowers, herbs and some half dolls from our little collection. 

Lemonade has been served!  And for the meal . . .  I'm going to leave that to your imagination! 

Soothe your spirit with the quiet pleasures of an Al fresco retreat.

Each place has a small bundle of fresh herb sprigs . . . mint, rosemary & lavender.
Ohhh, such a sweet aroma!

Linger long, savoring the first fresh tastes of summer

  6. Lavender lemonade on a hot summer day looks refreshing. A lace tablecloth and lush green grass in the background, the perfect summer place for a drink and a rest.

  7. Dearest Wendy,

    Wow, what a view and you did such a great job in setting a most elegant and romantic table! Love your cut-work embroidery in ton-sur-ton. You have the silver ware set correctly so you certainly can receive any passing by royalty...
    Seems that your climate is already more forgiving than ours if I look at your lush flowers. Enjoy them, also for me!
    Love to you,

  8. Oh WEndy, so lovely!

    Lavender and lemon together are perfect - I usually make at least one lemon lavender cake each summer. Time to do so, you have inspired me!

    Beautiful backdrop for your refreshments!
