Morning Dew Tea

Happy Tea on Tuesday!

While on our anniversary trip,
we stayed at El Rocio B&B
which means
The Morning Dew.

Lovely place down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
Warm weather, and just a short drive south.
I enjoyed some green tea while there,
and took it on my morning walk,
along with a fresh picked orange.

We saw birds of many kinds,
and they love the citrus as much as we do.
Here is a kiskadee enjoying his breakfast,
and to the right
you can see a clay colored robin.
I also saw a chachalaca and paraque,
which are now added to my birding life list.

I walked a labyrinth on the property.
It is said that walking a labyrinth is a right brained task,
that involves intuition, creativity and imagery.

Our cottage, Casa Jardin,
had nice touches like this hand made quilt.

Loved this unique woodpecker door knocker.

Then we saw the little hobbit type meditation room.

Below shows a bit of the green, lush gardens outside our door.
Love the colors of the stucco walls too.
The rusted metal 'spirit lady'
that says
'Live in the Light'
was one of my favorite pieces
of garden art they had on the grounds.
Visit Kimmie for more tea posts.
You never know what you will find there.
Kimmie has lots of unique things in her Etsy shop too.

Savor the Day!

Hi Yvonne, that looks like such a wonderful place to visit. I remember when you posted before about the labyrinth. It's nice to stay in a place that has touches of "home" in its surroundings. Those oranges laid out on the branch for the birds are so cool. Hope your day is great. Tammy

Well, I love that teacup for one thing. Just my colors. What a cool place to stay and that little meditation hut is wonderful. Don't you love it when you find a special spot like that to stay?
I'm having my tea watching the snow fall and blow around. :)Bea

This is a GLORIOUS post. Thank you for sharing it with us today. I adored the birds eating the oranges and the rusty garden art. Now if only I could sew that well! Happy
Tea Tuesday, dear.

I missed tea this week. So cool that you keep find labyrinth's. The hobbit hovel is pretty cool as well and I'm not even a big fan of the books or movies. :)
