When we are entertaining in the Country we tend to do it more during Spring, Summer, and Fall before and/or after driving becomes hazardous for people coming out from the city.

The chick salt and pepper come out at this time of year.  By the end of May, there will be baby chicks in the chicken coop.

The flowers are Calendula and a yellow vase is filled with Forsythia twigs that are about to burst open.

I like using this silver for luncheons as the pieces are slightly smaller than usual.

This dish pattern with its Green and Yellow is so cheerful in the Spring and Summer.

We often round up fresh eggs from another farm for guests to take home.  We have two large vegetable gardens and guests are taken out to gather fresh vegetables and herbs, when in season.

  1. What a glorious tablesetting and quite the feast! I love that china pattern. So beautiful and springy. And the chicks are so cute! Don't you love having things you pull out just for a short time of the year? It's like meeting up with an old friend!
