The Old White Chair.....

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!

  2. Thank you for stopping by and for leaving your nice comment. It's always good to know when someone enjoys your efforts and time. The old chair will be moved to a new location and you might see some different vintage when it is used again.

  3. Tea time in your garden looks so peaceful! Hoping I can visit it again soon!
