Tea Party in the Garden

Behold this Tea Party in the Garden. My husband has been taking a drawing class at Greenfield Community College this semester, a gift to himself to celebrate his semi-retirement.  I have occasionally given him a hard time, but he holds no grudge and painted my fantasy of a Garden Tea Party. Not quite finished yet.

Camellia chinensis

Of course, before there is a tea party there must be tea, which begins  with the tea plant Camellia chinensis. Pastels, both. He’s been doing tea and tea cups every which way, some of which I never dreamed of. Great fun.

And don’t forget – Tomorrow Wednesday, December 11 at midnight is the deadline to click here and leave a comment and win a copy of Seeing Flowers AND a copy of The Roses at the End of the Road.

    Love the camellia. How nice that he has something to interest him in his free time. So many men do not.

    Deb – I shall be a good wife from now on. I am really happy that he is back to the drawing board.
    Denise – WE are both lucky that he has found a happy occupation.
