Tea on Tuesday

                                               Happy belated St. Patty's Day to ya' all!!!

Had my Irish Breakfast tea, in my vintage Firestone mug......

                Spring has sprung, and is merrily springing in fast forward- and early!!!

 The old fashioned daffodils are popping up everywhere, and the quince is buzzing with bees and buds!

In a couple more years, our flowering pear allee should be gorgeous......

                                                            But, back to tea.....

The fabulous Beekman Boys shared this- and I have to share it with you!!!
Beautiful photos - and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the teapot!!!!!!

And check out THIS teapot - made especially for Beekman - " The b .1802 Rural Artist Collective member that does our goat leg soap dishes is doing 4 one of a kind teapots based on animals at Beekman Farm. We'll have a gallery show and auction later in the year. Was there any doubt who stepped forward to be the first model?
— with Polka Spot."
