It's a new day around here....it really IS spring....the season has really changed.... the calendar says so..
As I sit here writing, it is still gloomy with short spurts of sunshine and temp in the 40's...BUT as of midnight tonight, it is the first day of spring..and I am sticking to that!!!!!!!!!!
I fixed this breakfast tray or lunch tray...and had it ready to take into the garden as soon as the sun came out..... well......I waited and waited... and it came out for about 10 minutes..but I was ready. hahaha
I am a natural light photographer and depend on the sunlight a lot...let's see what I was able to get...
Instead of picking the flowers and putting them in the vase, I just plopped the tray right down in the flowers..
I usually eat with the tray on my lap and enjoy the flowers..
This old wicker tray is perfect for garden lunches and breakfasts..
The pattern is Harrison's Rose by Haviland. this was my Grandmother's china and I cherish it..
I covered the tray with a beautiful embroidered , cutwork cloth that came from my other grandmother..
The daylilies are looking so healthy..
I always love flowers inside a cup..
I am sure this 5 fingered vase will get a lot of use later in the season...
Or I could move over to the area of the garden that has this huge clump of snowdrops...
The spring season is a most welcome time of year for us... I simply could NOT wait another week before I took the tablescaping outside...
My goal is to simplify these settings....Most of our meals are just the two of us anyway and I intend to set a lot of these showing just how pretty it can be done when it is just a small table for two... After all, my husband is my most important guest..the one I love the best...and he should be shown how much I love and appreciate him by getting my best tablescapes... There are plenty of opportunities to plan big get togethers...but, this is everyday life around here.
Happy SPRING y'all.
