The Children's Garden at Meadowlark Gardens, Vienna, Virginia

A Loving Recipe for a Perfect Cup of Tea


Willing friends who love to sit and share
Grateful hearts in each friend who cares
A beautiful garden to sit in and enjoy
Memories of times shared throughout the years
Lots of smiles and laughter to brighten up a day
While passing on a kindness along life’s highway.
And a few friends to share a special cup of tea
Truly makes this a perfect recipe.

  8. I would love to wander round there, Denise. I could use the excuse that I'm in my second childhood... grins.

    Love the frog and the figure in the apron with a plant pot on his head. Imagination let loose, methinks.

    Loved the first little picture showing the frog/rabbit/bird, etc. having a tea party. NEAT.
