Seasonal Sundays # 54–Father’s Day

Seasonal Sunday Teapot copy

Welcome to Seasonal Sundays #54.

May 010

With Father’s day upon us…

…I can’t help but think of the phrase…

May 003

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.

May 007

Obviously my train of thought is that a Father is like a Mighty Oak

and their child, a little acorn.

May 041

The canopy of this mighty oak is my backyard, although the tree itself

isn’t in my yard.

May 033

It’s Father’s Day.

Here in the Northeast, that means that school is almost out and

Summer is about to begin.

May 047

We have one more week of school. I know in many parts of the

country school has been out for several weeks.

May 020

Mr. Scaper and our youngest are going to a Met game.

May 052

That’s fine with the rest of us since we’re not sports fans and the older

two have finals to study for.

May 040

Since the game is on Sunday, per Mr. Scaper’s request we celebrated

Father’s Day with Saturday night dinner at his Tennis Club. So

no “Father’s Day” table this year.

How will you celebrate Father’s Day?

Please note, I have enabled a new feature of InLinkz. As we all know, by linking to a blog party you receive more traffic and the host receives more traffic. Unfortunately, some individuals do not provide a link back to the host’s blog. That’s unfair as it generates traffic for the participant, but not for the host. InLinkz has a new feature which won’t allow you to link to Seasonal Sundays, unless the participant's post provides a link back to The Tablescaper.

Also, a participant must provide a link to their actual post, not just their blog. For example, if I was linking to the party when the linking mechanism asks for your URL, I would have to enter: rather than just

Most participants do all of the above and none of this will bother you or make any difference to your linking.

A Mets much fun those were when I lived in NYC. I can hear the crowd now! Hopefully, here tomorrow will be clear and sunny so the father can do what he likes best, boat.

Happy Father's Day to Mr. Scaper.

Not only has school ended here but I was amazed that summer school is in session for the younger kids already. Shorter days and fewer days per week it seems the kids around here actually enjoy summer classes.

Sounds like you have a lovely Saturday planned. Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Father's Day dinner.

I have had that problem with the brownie a couple of times. Can you please take my entry down and I will enter again in the AM. I now think I know what caused it. So sorry for the inconvenience.
I loved the analogy of the oak and the acorn on this special day. It truly represents our heritage. Thank you, it is a beautiful sentiment and the pictures as well.
Ginger :)

PS: I will try to correct and reenter. Don't know if it will let me.

Your photographs are just wonderful! Our schools have been out for nearly a month, and summer has been burning down on us since the beginning of May.

I would trade locations with you in a minute!
