May In Bloom


May is so beautiful
Orchards are fair,
Branches of fruit trees
Make gardens of air.
Flowers of fragrance
Bloom in the light,
Fall like the snowflakes
Showering white.
Orchards of heaven
Grow with a grace,
And like a blessing
Perfume the place
Each tree in blossom,
Each lovely spray,
In this month of Our Lady,
Bring glory to May.

This is one of my newest tea cups and one of my favorites. It doesn't have a mark .
The teapot is Arthur Wood~  mark on bottom- Arthur Wood & Son Staffordshire England.

What a delightful & elegant presentation today. Congrats on being featured. Love the teacup set ... it so reminds me of one we sold in the shop that had a Japanese sticker on it.

Have a beautiful weekend ~

Happy Pink Saturday Clara Sweetie...
Oh my what a gorgeous share today. I love, LOVE your dishes. How beautiful they are. Love the white pitcher, so many uses for that. Your teacup is gorgeous. I can just feel the steam coming off of the tea, and would so enjoy sitting right down and sharing an afternoon of laughter and happiness. Tea seems to always bring out the best in us ladies, does it not?

Thank you for sharing with me. I so enjoyed my visit. I am Country Wings in Phoenix, your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. Country hugs, Sherry

Good day, Clara...what a pretty name - Clara! I love the photos of the cottage in your header. Oh, yes, the month of May is the month of our Lady, and it brings back many childhood memories of crowning her glorious 'head' with a wreath of roses.

Your teacup/saucer set is delightful, and the teapot is such a pretty thing. I love all things cheery, bright, floral, and pastel. My tastes have changed so much over the years.

Blessings,
Marianne
