Gone to Green

Don't you love to sit outside when the weather warms up?  I have a favorite spot where I sit and enjoy my breakfast and lunch.  Most of the times with a favorite book.

Recently I started reading a delightful series and I am working my way through each edition.  The first one is "Gone to Green" and the series is written my Judy Christie.





 Wild Blueberry & Acai has become my tea of choice.



 This is the spot.......
This is the book.........

I hope you are enjoying your day!

Good afternoon Jocelyne,
How lovely to be able to sit outside on your porch and enjoy a cup of tea and a good book! I would love to be able to do that. Soon! Your tea things are so pretty and I love the little jug! Thanks so much for coming to tea at my little cottage and sharing with us today. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh but your outdoor area looks inviting! So calm and serene. Your tea tray too looks lovely. That is a beautiful pitcher. And your book too looks good. How wonderful to sit outside and enjoy a good read!

I worked in the garden today so didn't make it for tea, other than some in a mug by myself when I was done.
Sitting outside to eat and have my tea should happen over the next couple of weeks and I'm so looking forward to it.
I'll have to check out the book you're reading.

I just love your dishes. they are so pretty. I've already been lucky to have had tea on my porch a few times now. Bigalow green is the tea I drink and I'm going to have to try that flavor. It sounds good.

Hi Jocelyne, was that your breakfast table? It looks heavenly. I think I would never want to finish my breakfast just so I could stay there! Lovely. Today we've had a nice sweater only day and I hope the coats have been put away for good this year. Hugs and have a lovely week. :)

What a nice little relaxing spot to put your feet up, read your book, sip your tea, and just escape for a bit!!! I like it that you treat yourself!

I just prepared a cup of that tea for my husband. Poor little thing was freezing (while I've got a billion fans on...you understand ;-)) so I had to warm him up with a cuppa! That Bigelow's is a nice tea.

I hope you're able to sit out and enjoy many more peaceful, beautiful mornings and afternoons as you wind your way through the book series!

Oh, how lovely - what a sweet setting! I cannot wait to be back on my porch, as soon as the pollen stops falling. I feel calmer, just viewing this!

Your patio looks like a very comfy and relaxing! We won't be able to even try to sit outside until the winds calm down.
