Having Tea with a bumble bee...

Why do women like flowers so much?
I've thought about this question and I think I have a clue to the answer.

I think it is because we were created in a garden. Our heritage began there among the flowers and plants with God. I think our hearts ache for it...to be back where life began.

They always catch my eye...flowers.
Whether growing along the roadside or on a teacup.

They are a visual delight. So many textures and colors, even fragrances!

I'm amazed at the things God created for us to tend...and the thought that His first choice for us was a garden. He looked at it and said, "It is good."

What could be more perfect than flowers and teacups...having tea in a garden?

With the bumble bees and butterflies.

I agree with God...it is good.


  1. very good perspective! your Royal Albert is beautiful. I love yellow flowers!

  2. Charlotte, your two cups are really lovely. The flowers on each one are beautiful, as well as your real flowers!
    Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  3. I've never thought about the reason we love flowers but I like your thought. You take such beautiful pictures. I can picture you drinking tea from one of your special teacups, your Bible by your side.

    Have a beautiful week,

  4. Good morning Charlotte,
    What a delightful post! I love your thoughts on why we ladies love flowers so much and I think you are probably right. Your teacups are very pretty and I love your shots of the bee and butterfly. I am so happy you have shared this with Tea Time and I wish you a lovely day, my friend.
