An Irish Tea

"Buttercups and daisies,
Oh, the pretty flowers;
Coming ere the spring time,
To tell of sunny hours.
When the trees are leafless;
When the fields are bare;
Buttercups and daisies
Spring up here and there."

Mary Howitt

Hello everyone,
Today I'm sharing some of my green
for Saint Patrick's Day.
Won't you join me for a cup of tea?

The white plate is by Lefton with an Irish lace design

Royal Vale teacup
Made in England
Ridgway Potteries

I love my green teapot. It was made in
Portugal and I love it's shape and
the pretty embossed leaves.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.
