April Showers...

April Tea: The Charm of Home
April showers have brought April flowers here at my home. We had spring thunderstorms Thursday and Friday of last week.  So much rain always causes a profuse blooming of flowers, such a welcome sight this year.  Teacup by Gracie china.     

April Tea: The Charm of Home
Things are blooming out in just two days time and then all of the sudden it's green!  

April Tea: The Charm of Home
So, that made me take tea on the front porch and I perched my cup here on a rock in the front flower bed.  I picked a handfull of these flowers to take in for a mini bouquet.

Even in the backyard everything is coming up flowers!
Have you been outside and taken in a view of spring?

So pretty, and such a lovely teacup. Our ground is still frozen so it will be a while til we see flowers, but I'm happy to know they're in other parts of the country.

Such a pretty teacup but then I have its mate! The violets are very sweet. I am amazed at the flowers you have blooming. I know it's lovely there because my son was telling me last night. He lives in Urbana.
I'm jealous because we still have seven feet of snow to melt and the cold weather is keeping it around longer. Underneath the snow is seven feet of frost in the ground. I am yearning for green grass outside my window. Sigh, it will come. I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend and thank you for joining me for tea.

Love your pretty teacup's purple chintz design. It snowed here on Easter but some heavy rainfall is heading our way later this week!

What a cute idea to take that sweet teacup outside for a Spring photo shoot, I love the look of it on that rock, very nice!
Happy Tuesday!

Pretty violets. A favorite flower of mine. We are beginning to see the bulbs popping up but that is all so far.

Hi Sherry, I love, love your beautiful violet-covered teacup and saucer!! The real flowers are lovely too. :) Yes, I have been outside to enjoy the pretty spring blooms and green grass. We did yard work on Saturday, and I swept the front porch yesterday and took a few pictures. It's a wonderful time of year.

Happy Belated Easter to you and have a great week!

The shower is worth it if you come back home to have tea in that lovely teacup!

Love your chintz teacup...looks like the phlox glowing in the gardens at the moment. I love daffodils and wish they were around for longer too! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
