Garden Tour Saturday

No, we were not on the annual Berea Arts Council Garden Tour,
but two master gardeners' homes on our little cul-de-sac street were. 
See the circle at the end of our driveway in the photo below?
Every carload of folks visiting the gardens on the tour drove around that circle on Saturday.  
Talk about pressure...
The next door neighbor and I did a bit of sprucing up in our front yards
in preparation for the traffic.
It gave me the motivation to pull out my teapot and teacup planters for my annual planting.
The folks who passed by know this is where the "tea lady" lives.
Our roses were at their peak a couple of weeks ago.
Take a good look at the little garden space below,
 because in a few weeks the weeds will have taken over if GJ ignores it. 
It seems that weeding takes low priority around here with everything else going on.

Thank you for visiting my blog today for my personal little "tea" garden tour.

It looks lovely at YOUR HOUSE as well and your garden "areas" are lovely! Very "teaish" too!

I loved seeing the garden tour today. Your red hot poker plants are obviously very happy there at your house!

You have a beautiful yard well tended. Your teacup planters are so cute. I always go to our citys garden tour every year. It was at mine a few years ago. Alot of fun, but lots of work!
Have a good week,
Nancy

I love seeing your garden. You are inspiring me to get one of those teacup planters for my yard. Our roses are just beginning and won't peak for awhile. I am always sad when they are gone. Your yard is beautiful!
