I promised on the last post to show something a little different this time. Do you remember the old white chair? I have not shown it for a long time. I use to do posts occasionally with the chair in the garden, set up with special accessories. Today might be the first of a second series of "The Old White Chair".
Today we have a tea time set-up.
I placed the old white chair among some plants and next to this garden cup. And, added a very special tea spoon - my spoon from 10 Downing Street, London. Just as I got it in place I had a visitor, just above my head.
I was reminded of a little writing from Emily Dickinson: The bee is not afraid of me, I know the butterfly; The pretty people in the woods, receive me cordially.
Continuing on, I placed a large bouquet of flowers that I had just gathered from the garden.
"Flowers are nature's jewels with whose wealth she decks her summer beauty."
Next came a favorite tea pot and a small selection of tea.
So, The Old Chair sits here in the path of fluttering butterflies......
......who also pause to receive their own nectar......
......drinking from blossom cups.
I promise you, this is not a Twinings commercial! I chose the tea bags by the colors.
"Nothing is more completely the child of art than a garden".
I hope you have enjoyed this edition of "The Old Chair" and now, I need to pick up my trowel and get to work!
