Zinnia Tea Time

Hello everyone,
I have been MIA for a couple of weeks.
I had cataract surgery on my left eye, and 
it's difficult to see small print. My husband
has been so wonderful about putting drops in
my eyes, and on Thursday I will have the
 right eye done. 
Today I have a beautiful set of teacups, saucers, and dessert dishes
on my tea table for the August page of my calendar. 
My daughter-in-law inherited this lovely set when
her mother passed away. My DIL's grandmother vacationed in Norway
and brought this set home as a souvenir. I am blessed to be
the lucky custodian of the beautiful Norwegian dishes.   
My Zinnias are blooming in the garden and 
I wanted to have a bouquet for tea time.
The yellow zinnia is just outstanding.
The dog days of Summer are over, and now I am looking forward to 
Autumn.  The temps have been over 100° for weeks, and I am
so ready to play in the garden and not get scorching hot before noon.
Hopefully, I will get back into the swing of things after Thursday's eye surgery.
Thanks for visiting.

  1. I do love zinnias - they're so cheerful. Glad your surgery went well. I've already had both eyes done and it's wonderful!

  2. Good Afternoon Betty, I am so pleased to hear your eye surgery went well. You must see quite a difference now that the cataract as been removed, and your eyesight will improve even more when the second one has been removed.
    Zinnias are such a beautiful flower, I would describe them as a cheery flower..... as they certainly make me feel happy.
    Take good care of yourself and I will be thinking of you on Thursday.
    Best Wishes to you.

  3. Betty, Glad you could get a post done with wonderful flowers on your table. I hope this next procedure goes well. Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Sylvia D.

  4. Your zinnias are gorgeous and the teacups are so pretty, just perfect for summer. Good luck on your right eye cataract surgery...Christine

  5. Beautiful flower tea set! I hope your eye surgery goes well .The zinnias are so pretty for August tea table. Hope you wil come see my post on Seashore tea time!

  6. I love Zinnias. Unfortunately mine didn't do so well this year. Maybe it's because of the lack of rain we've had here in Eastern Quebec. Your tea cups are lovely. Thelma.

  7. I always think that I don't like zinnias. Then summer rolls around and everything else is cooked, and I wonder why I didn't plant any. I guess I'll just have to enjoy yours!

  8. What a colorful and beautiful post! Love the zinnias.Hugs.

  9. Zinnias are a favourite in our garden and the dishes are very pretty. Good luck with your eye operation. I hear they are pretty routine these days.

  10. Betty, love these photos! I need to plant some zinnias - when I was a little girl, my grandmother and I planted them together. Glad you're halfway there with your surgeries and doing well!

  11. Such beautiful flowers!! Hope your eye surgery turns out ok.

  12. Hi Betty:
