Herbal Tea Garden





The cool rainbow bird in the Herbal Tea Party garden. This back to back garden was one of my favourites with the bird, the pergola with tea chests, and brewing equipment to make perfect herbal tea. Rosemary, lavender, and sage, mint, bergamot, and marigolds grow alongside Dandelions, fruit trees, and a climbing jasmine.

I saw this on Gardeners World with Rachel De Caen sampling a freshly infused herb tea.This garden appealed to me with its mixture of Oriental tea room, and traditional cottage garden.I loved the bird too :)

That's a lovely garden! I think herbs and tea-herbs are some of my favorite things to grow out of all my plants. There are delicious scents and many insects to see as well.
What a pretty bird statue!
