What's for dessert

The calender may say it is Spring but the thermometer says it is cold. It was 82 one day and  the next went down to 38. it is sunny out. I had to bring in  some plants I was in a hurry to put out. It can vary here right up to June. I did get my picket fence painted and ready to be moved. The tulips are fading fast. I had about 3o pink ones done blooming.
June will be strawberry time. We used to take grand kids to a strawberry farm. We ate as much as we picked.So much better right off the plant.  We got to ride on the wagon. Those were the good days. I wanted to use my pretty dishes with the roses. Pastel tablecloth and invite someone for tea and dessert I wonder who.
I used the purple butterflys just for fun instead of napkin rings. If you know me I like to be different.Even if noone shows up I will enjoy my goodies.
My poor droopy tulips . Another day and they will fade out.  No its not Easter bunny. I have bunnys that go under my deck every winter. I hope they survived the winter. I like my china  ones with the flower garlands. He looks a little startled for all the attention.

Angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries. Can hardly wait to eat that. it is sitting on a white pedestle.

How about cut up banana  with cream
A cup of tea and some grapes.Warm me up with tea and no sugar.

pastel green napkins and cute tea holders
Bunny likes what he sees. This angle he looks happy.
Pretty pitcher for nice cold milk if you please.
Just one more time he is so cute.
This is what I am waiting for. They look yummy.
A closer look at the butterflys.My mom used to make a great big biscuit slice it in half and pile it high with our just picked strawberries. Oh so good. May is half over and June will be getting warmer and then our summer will begin. Lots of garage sales and tourists everywhere.til the next time come see what I cook up lol http://betweennapsontheporch.net/

Hi there, Vernice! So great to see another post here!!! I hope your Mother's Day was a good one!

This is such a wonderful table that could easily transition from Spring right into Summer. The butterflies make it have a very light feel, and the sweet bunny is endearing. I, too, hope your porch bunnies survived that harsh winter you guys had there. That was really tough!

Your cake looks scrumptious!!! Angel food cake is nice and light, so you can have THREE pieces without guilt! :-)

I like to make a big sweet biscuit and pile it with strawberries and freshly whipped cream. It's a great way to enjoy those wonderful freshly picked berries! My Dad's strawberries didn't produce this year. :-(

Your china is really pretty! It's perfect for this sunshiny table!!!

Have a wonderful week, Vernice, and enjoy the nice weather. I hope it keeps up with no more frosts!!!

Yes, thank you. I will join you for a cup of tea, and a sweet treat. Everything looks so cheerful and yummy! I love spring. We've been cheated out of that season this year. It's gone from snow to summer heat in 2 weeks time. We've just got to keep smiling, and roll with the punches. I'd like another one of those delicious cupcakes please. Virtual sweets are the best. Zero calories! :)

You have a lot of talent--I always admire your table and ideas. Have a good week!
