No, it's not my garden, it's a little park in downtown Charlottetown where I brought a simple little tea for Hubby and me to enjoy outside.
I set our tea out on the park bench. The paisley teapot I have had for years and the transferware teacups were given to me by my cousin Val. The little saucer on which the ginger snaps rest was a thrift find in New Brunswick while we were over on holiday.
We can sit and sip our tea and enjoy the view. The fresh air is wonderful!
I brought some chocolate coated donuts too as well as the ginger snaps. I love the pop of red flowers behind the bench, don't you?
After we had our tea we made our way to Fanningbrook which is where the Lieutenant Governor lives. He represents our Queen here on the Island. The LG's granddaughter had been a member of our Young Adult Ministry a few years ago. And yes, I have been inside this grand place several times. It is especially nice at Christmastime.
Fanningbank has spectacular gardens! So, come along and enjoy a wonderful stroll with me. It is a sight to behold, believe me! You can see the mansion in the background. If you click on the photos, they will enlarge for you.
Lush and splendid in its rainbow of colours.

Prince William and his lovely bride were visiting here not too long ago.
One can see the harbour behind the bench.
The Lieutenant Governor's mansion is situated in Victoria Park where we like to go most evenings and have our coffee.
We park our car along the boardwalk and watch the sailboats.
Thank you for coming along with me for a little tea in the garden and a walk through one of our city's fabulous gardens.
Thank you Bernideen for hosting and please visit this lovely lady for more tea in the garden participants.
