The Glories of Tea With Stepheny
To share your garden is a reward for the time, money, planning and work invested in this sacred spot in your world. When designing a garden, you find advice on what to include: whimsey, the sound of water, a surprise around the curve in a pathway, a focal point where an important piece of sculpture or handsome container sits. Provide places to sit and view the garden. If you are lucky enough to have a Borrowed View, take advantage of that. A garden is a lovely place to entertain. It may be an impromptu set up to sit and eat outdoors or a permanent place. The following images speak for themselves. I hope they will give you the inspiration to carry your tea things outdoors and experience the piece of heaven you’ve worked hard to create. Enjoy!
