Fruit of my labor

Since I'm preparing for the return of my boxes filled with craft supplies from storage, I haven't actually decided what tea I'm having today. It may even be coffee, which will keep me going all day long. I hope you will join me for a breakfast apple before we begin the day. Peonies, which didn't bloom last year, grace the dining room table as the sun rises.

Please join us for Tea Tuesday, where you'll find the links at Kimmie's. You don't have to drink tea, and it's always fun to read my friends' tales, which are usually so much more interesting than mine.

No peonies in this corner of the world. :/ Best wishes as you get your boxes from storage and get set up. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers! They have the most lovely scent, and I adore their petals. Good luck with your delivery, and don't work too hard getting things settled in! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Kimmie said...

Our peonies didn't bloom last year either ... It was much to rainy. I'm hoping for a better year this time around. Yours are heavenly! Your breakfast apple is such a good idea. An apple a day ......

Good luck with your UNpacking ..... So much better than packing!

Happy Tuesday!

My yard is full of irises and I saw ASPARAGUS coming up in the neighbor's neglected garden. Bodes well for a good spring and summer I think!

You are making me want an apple...

No tea post for me today (I am STILL under reconstruction!), but I am visting everyone else today (I NEED a break!)

Lovely flowers. My neighbors peonies just seemed to shoot up over night. Love the scent...hate the ants.
Have a great day!

Love the peonies and apples. How about I bring the tea...I have the most lovely Lapsang souchong! (hmmmmm, now where is that tin of tea, am I spelling that correctly?)
Hugs,

Lovely place setting! Enjoy your time there. Tea or coffee...enjoy.

what a lovely peaceful scene
and a gorgeous bonus having your peonies bloom

I have found those will pout sometimes for two years if they get relocated...Mother Nature has her own time table it seems

hope you are holding up in all the upheaval you've had...I can imagine it is disconcerting for an organized person like yourself!

Happy May and T Day Dear One!

Your table looks beautiful, simple and fresh with those flowers and the apples. If you are collecting your craft supplies from storage does that mean you are nearly ready to move back into your re-vamped basement studio ?...that must be exciting. Un packing is so much more fun than packing. Have a great day Elizabeth and hopefully you will be settled with all your supplies around you soon.xx
