Thursday Thrill – Tea Garden

The days are coming where late mornings will be perfect. Perfect, that is, for tea. Tea outside. Tea in the garden of Spring.

Those days will be soft under foot, earth still springy, sponging from the sun.

Ride to the garden park with gloved hands, but feet up, like the little girl who once giggled in a downhill descent.

But remember to wash up when you get to tea. We want hands as smooth and clean as the newly opened crocus who raises her hands to mother sun for her morning inspection.

Now we're ready. Ready for tea. Tea among flowers and birds and bees.

Pale pinks, yellows, and whites sprinkle the view as the first of the dogwoods have opened their eyes.

Though wafting hints of golden spiced tea and crumbly cookies remind us to hurry back to table. Comfortably seated, nibbling goodies and sipping tea, there is no better place to quietly watch for more blooms to wake and hear the local birds sound their daily news.
