Fireside Tea

Hello dear ones,

  Our tea gathering for today will take place in our family room.  So please, come, and share a cup of tea with us!

~ I love the shape of this teapot ~

Hand painted

To my way of thinking,
there is not a more perfect day
for tea with a friend
than when it is cold
and rainy on the outside
and there is a hot, blazing
fire on the inside.
~ Teatime Anytime ~ A book collection
From The Clever Factory

Blest be that spot, where
cheerful guests retire
To pause from toil, and trim
their evening fire.
~ Oliver Goldsmith

Our curious Sir Rupert love to watch the candles burn.

Surely everyone is aware of the divine
pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles
at four o'clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair
tea~maker, shutter closed, curtains flowing in
ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind
and rain are raging audibly without.
~ Thomas De Quincey

May His peace and serenity be with you!

With love,

Join us for . . .

Seasons at Gardenside Rose Cottage

Hello dear ones,

This post is about our little cottage/shed in different seasons.  I thought it's interesting how things change from season to season.  


"There is no season such delight can bring,
As Summer, Autumn, Winter and the Spring."
~ William Browne, 1630

~ Winter ~

Winter is the time of promise because there is so little to do - or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so.
~ Stanley Crawford

Winter dies into Spring, to be born again in the Autumn.
~ Marche Blumenberg

~ Spring ~

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's Party!"
~ Robin Williams

White-throated Sparrow hand carved by my dear husband.
When my DH finished carving the birds I like to take them out, and take photos of them with flowers and things.

Spring arrives and with it comes . . . cute little creatures.

Can you see the cuties?

~ Summer ~

These photos below were taken last summer after a heavy rain, you can see the flooded ditch.  We are planning, later on, to add a little bridge.

Nature gave us our own stream :)

I love to seat in the swing and look at the beautiful mountains any season of the year!

I also love to contemplate my flowers, specially when you find one so unique and with this kind of shape.

Tea anyone?

May you be seated . . . I hope you enjoy your visit!

Month in the year, in which, severally,
things of Beauty may be then its Season."
