A Pansy Tea

Hi everyone,
 
It's tea time so please sit and enjoy a cup with me while we catch up.


I've brought out my princess pansy teapot blooming with lovely purple pansies.  I just adore the scalloped detail.


Today I am sipping green tea and having a freshly baked banana muffin.  Would you like a piece to nibble on?

 
 
Pansies are the first flowers I plant in the spring and they bloom all summer.


Their smiling faces add a touch of grace and joy throughout the garden.


Named after the French word for 'thought' (pensee), the pansy is said to be a charmed flower.  Don't you agree?


Thank you for stopping to visit.

Hi Donna - as you know I still can't pop in very often with my pc problems - so I was very pleased I timed this visit to find this post - I love everything about it and your banana muffin looks delicious! I can't believe how closely your tea-set matches the real pansies and I think the meaning behind the name of the flower is wonderful. At first I thought your set was the same as one I inherited from my grandmother (which is very old) - but I see it is slightly different (although at a glance they could be one and the same). It is gorgeous!

What a pretty teas set, Donna! Here in Texas, we plant pansies in the Fall and they last through Spring, if the bunnies don't eat them! I have to put mine in planters to keep them up high and safe.

Such a beautiful tea set Donna! Here in the south my pansies are done usually before Memorial Day. I sure wish they would last longer. I just love them. Have a good week....
