On a Beautiful Summers Day ...


there is nothing better than a walk in a garden


admiring the beautiful roses and lovely blue sky


the roses looked so pretty along the wooden arch


a final look before …

afternoon tea, or maybe a gin and tonic?
This sugar free iced tea is nice, see it here
I wonder what drink you may prefer?

All the best Jan

Lovely gardens. I went walking along the Rhine again. My drink was a "Schorle", a mix of Apple juice and mineral water. Hugs, Valerie

An absolutely gorgeous walk in the garden. I bet you are thrilled you moved to this magical place. And of course, I would join you for tea.

Water with mint leaves, lemon juice and lemon wedges.

It is so hot now that I feel like having iced tea with mint and lemon! :))

A walk in the garden on a pretty day (or any day) is always welcome. My drink would be water.

That's a beautiful garden, would love to walk around there. Gregg has been drinking a lot of iced tea but I never was able to enjoy the taste of it. He keeps trying it out on me but always has the same result :) Oh well, he doesn't like hard-boiled eggs and I love them, lol!

After a walk in this beautiful garden of roses, I would love an iced tea. It's my favorite way to drink tea in our hot, humid summer. Have a wonderful day. ♥

Well since you asked Eddie, Mine's a cold beer today in this heat. But I will need a sundowner later in the day.

I was with you in spirit.

sweet tea for me, what a GORGEOUS garden!!!

Pam Jackson said...

I prefer iced tea. Used to be sweetened then due to diabetes I went to unsweet, however I squeeze orange in mine. Lately I have been mixing both un and sweet together. I don't make tea here at the house anymore, I normally buy a gallon at the store. Seems so much easier that way then me boiling up decaf, unsweet tea! haha....oh the flavor! haha. Love your summer pics. I am enjoying my Crepe Myrtle tree as my Hydrandeas die out.
