When you arise in the morning, think what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. – Marcus Aurelius
This tea cup reminds me of my Nana J.
She was an avid gardener and she loved the colour blue. She was also a tea drinker!!
Royal Albert‘s Morning Glory tea cup was one of a six teacups in the Flora Series. The other patterns were Alberta Rose, Dogwood, Jasmine, Rambler Rose and Trillium. The cup shape is Gainsborough, which … This Morning Glory pattern was produced between 1975 and 2001.
A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books. – Walt Whitman
Happy Mother’s Day – Happy Monday!
Nature invites us to experience it with all of our senses, including our sense of touch. Silky and smooth, hard and rough, hot or cold, fluffy, furry or fuzzy. Well, maybe not everything should be touched – poison ivy and bumblebees, for example. Even isolated at home, there are wonders in nature to be savoured, if you take the time to look for them.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. – Hal Borland
Moss is popular for her unusual beauty, but what distinguishes her is that she is accessible and down to earth. – Rita Clifton
Green moss shines there with ice encased; The long grass bends its spear-like form; And lovely is the silvery scene When faint the sun-beams smile. –Robert Southey
This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, stand like druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace…
I have heard them called bold and flaunting, but to me they seem modest grace itself, only always on the alert to enjoy life as much as they can and not be afraid of looking the sun or anything else above them in the face.”
I love red!
“I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday,
sweet and fragrant, between its leaves.” –
