MN Herb Society Summer Tea

We had a lovely day on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, to celebrate our annual Summer Tea.  Our hostess this year was Faith, who is a Master Gardener.  Her gardens were designed with a combination of color, beauty, & texture.  She incorporated herbs and edible plants into her gardens.

The day was perfect. Sunny and 77°.  Ahh, these are the days we dream about in the midst of winter.
Our hostess, Faith.
I love the color and texture of the greens against the alliums on this wall.
Chip and one of our founding members, Gloria.
Faith’s husband built this “Tower of Flower” that was a showcase of her front entry.
I loved this Japanese Northern Dwarf Pine near the front door with Strawberries gracing its roots.  The bicolored needles were soft and the cones were intriguing. 
A mirrored fence reflects the graceful gardens.
Beautiful boxes of herbs are within reach of the Kitchen.
And perhaps my favorite: a bowling ball covered with pennies creates a beautiful piece of garden art.
