Seasonal beauty of nature enhansed by tea

What a seasonal cycle of beauty to behold and enjoy.  The wintery snow melts which brings vibrant spring growth.  These garden pictures were taken 3 months apart last year.  Imagine sipping tea along a hot pot meal with family and friends in cold winter--the house filled with delicious aroma of the broth and foggy windows covered with warm steam.  Then spring comes--tea in gazebo surrounded by blooming plants!
