There is nothing like a bouquet of wildflowers in
a blue mason jar.
It's been quite sunny and hot here and I'm not complaining.
I'm enjoying every minute of this beautiful summer weather.
Today I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for
Tea Time Tuesday.
Sandi has chosen a theme this week featuring "Anne of
Green Gables". I don't have any Anne memorabilia
and not even a book so I will share a few favorite quotes
from this famous Prince Edward Island redhead
along with some green.
Anne on contemplating city life says...
"I think I could probably come to the conclusion that I'd like
it for a while...but in the end, I'd still prefer the sound of the
wind in the firs across the brook more than the tinkling
Our back deck.
I enjoy sitting on either of our decks on a nice day.
Some days it can be too hot on the back deck but
just right on the front one.
Anne, referring to the sun...
"Look at that, you couldn't enjoy it's lovliness more if
you had a rope of diamonds".
To which Diana responds...
"I don't know about that".
On this beautiful sunny morning I am enjoying the birds
singing in the trees and the hummingbirds flitting to and fro
to the feeders. I poured a cup of cold sweet tea in my new
Rose Chintz teacup and chose a digestive cookie to go with it.
Now Sandi, I know how you love Rose Chintz and when I saw
this cup and saucer at a gift/antique shop on the weekend I thought
of you. And, every time I use it I will think of you too!
"I think you may be a kindred spirit after all."
We have been to PEI with our children when they were
young and have visited Anne of Green Gables house.
A view of our backyard from the deck. I can't wait for the phlox to bloom.
In 2008 hubby and I visited the island again after our
daughter's wedding. We needed a rest and a getaway
after all the bustle of the wedding. We didn't get to
see any "Anne" things on that trip.
And believe it or not, I've never seen the Anne musical
And the other side.
Another Anne quote...
"You know something Diana? We are rich. We have sixteen
years to our credit and we both have wonderful imaginations.
We should be happy as queens."
Don't you just love Anne's wisdom?
Lucy Maude Montgomery, the author of "Anne of Green Gables",
was brilliant don't you think?
If you travel by car to PEI you will cross this bridge from
New Brunswick on the mainland to the island.
It's a nine mile crossing and you pay a toll when you leave
How I love to enjoy tea, hot or cold, in a beautiful cup.
There are miles of red sandy beaches all around the island.
And the water is really warm too!
"Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it."
Thanks so much for joining me for tea today. There are several
other bloggers taking part by providing 'refreshments'.
Come along with me won't you?
I hope you will join Sandi for
