A Spring Tea


 Spring flowers - perfect for an afternoon tea

 Forget-Me-Nots - Alaska State Flower



 Pansies that overwinter seem to be the hardiest ones




 Come and sit and have a cup of tea on this sunny afternoon

Oh my - I can't imagine anyone having some pansies now! They are a feast for the eyes as is the lovely teaset that you are sharing! I enjoyed seeing your posting and so glad you shared!

Lovely tea pot and cups today. And oh those pansies. Lucky you that they overwintered. No plans had a chance with our cold winter.

Hello Jo-nn I am a china lover and your china is stunning. I love the soft gentle colours
of the flowers and the way you have displayed them.

Hi there! I am visiting from Martha's lovely blog :)

Your Spring tea is simply gorgeous and your tea set is quite pretty. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. May you have a wonderful week. Hugs!

Very pretty! I had "vanilla bean" butter with my pancakes at Lake Quinault last week. I think it would be lovely on scones or muffins. Have you ever made it? Our waitress said theirs was made with whipped butter, sugar, and vanilla paste (it has little bits of vanilla bean in it). Perfect for afternoon tea!

A cup of tea would be delightful. I love your pretty cups and how you've arranged everything. Time to enjoy ourselves now that we're on the mend! It's sunny here today and that feels nice, too. Enjoy your afternoon sweet friend! Hugs, Diane

Hi JoAnn,
Your pansies are so sweet and how lovely to be able to enjoy them this time of year. I won't see any for many months. Your tea set is wonderful and the florals on it are a delight to the eyes! A very pretty posting, and thank you for sharing with us and joining me for tea.

Blessings,
Sandi

Nice tea set and beautiful shots. I'm a coffee drinker and have a set a friend gave me who has since passed. Some days I use one of those cups and just think about what joy I'd feel if I could actually share a cup with her. :-)

Pansies are a popular winter bloom on my street, to my surprise. You would never see those at this time of year in Ohio where I grew up.Geraniums hang on all winter in my planters here. Nice to share tea with you.

Very pretty!

Beautiful tea set - lovely colors; and the flowers are a nice touch.

A lovely set. I should get things out of the cupboard to enjoy, but I'm too lazy. I went to Cozy Books today to trade in some finished books and look for new ones. I saw a stack of "Are We Walking to Alaska?" on the shelf. Good for you! - Margy

How refreshing to come here! I set aside blog reading time for this morning and spent an hour plowing through regurgitated recipes, product endorsement and content cobbled together from the postings of others.
Your site is ALWAYS your original work, carefully crafted and so enjoyable to read. I feel right at home here!

How I wish I was coming to tea. I would put on my most elegant tea dress and eat dainty little cakes and drink china tea and make interesting conversation - and use those pretty cups and saucers.

Everything on that table meets the eye of being girlish so prim and proper. I will be over.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

JoAnn, what a lovely idea to showcase your tea sets with beautifull fresh flowers. So pretty and so Springtime!..Happy Tuesday..Judy

Carrie said...

Wow, so many pretty pictures with the china and those pansies! I don't even know what my favorite is.

EG CameraGirl said...

Very pretty tea sets!

Peg said...

Oh, how I would enjoy a cup of tea from one of those cups, and sitting and sharing with you!

Candy S said...

I do wish we had pansies blooming here in Ohio. Your tea set looks so pretty set on the lace tablecloth with the pansies smiling little faces looking up so happily. It wouls be so nice to sit down and share a cup of tea with you. Have a wonderful day..... Candy

What a beautiful setting, and great photography. I like pansies, such happy little flowers. LOVE your Great Blue Heron shots in your header. You captured a unique shot in the lower right-hand corner.
