Garden Tea Time Arrives

bistro set for French tea

Suddenly spring is here and my garden livens up with bird songs and vibrant greens in various shades.

Besides with my friends to share the joy of spring, colorful flowers are great companion for tea in the garden, plus singing birds and buzzing bees.

Her treasured gardenia plant rewards her with lots of creamy white blossoms and intoxicating fragrance

Precious blue fringed violet plant displays a flower show after much pampering

I notice that camellia flowers are usually hidden under leaves. (to shield its beauty from bright sun?)
