I found this post all ready to go a month ago and hadn't posted it. Even though we are past apple blossom season and the lilies of the valley are all done, the forget me nots are still blooming so, I thought I'd post it anyway. :) Here is a belated spring vignette.
Two of my best friends came over the other day for afternoon tea.
I gathered some forget-me-nots and lily of the valley along with the apple blossoms from the other day onto an old platter for the centrepiece on the dining room table.
We enjoyed an afternoon of getting caught up on each others lives and drank lots of tea. We also had lemon pie (sorry, no pictures, but, it was good).
This little vintage pitcher is clear hobnail glass.
These little bouquets of sweetness make me happy.
My friend gifted me this little jar vase a few years ago. It has a built in 'frog' on the top of the screw lid.
This is the canning jar with lace wrapped around it that I shared the other day.
There you go. A pretty little vignette to cheer you.
I hope you like this dated vignette. It was too pretty not to post --- even a month later. :)
We had a severe thunder storm watch on for most of the southern part of the province today (June 25) and the storm did come at suppertime. The wind and rain was really wild and there was hail in some areas. The temperature dropped from 30C to 20C. Then the sun came out for a while and it got hot again. It has cooled down considerably tonight and the humidity is gone.
Here is the rainbow as the storm is passing by and heading down the river valley.
It looks like a rainy forecast for the next several days and even for the Canada Day Holiday weekend. I kind of hope they are wrong.
