WILDFLOWER TEASET for "Friends Sharing Tea"

Welcome to Friends Sharing Tea.  Today is February 26th and the month is nearly over. We are all counting the days till spring.  March 20th is the first official first day but I know differently in Colorado as I have seen it snow here in May.  May 25th is our average last frost date. 

This is a restless time when we anticipate the warming of the earth which brings forth life in  the garden.  I have set out my wildflower tea set that I found in an antique mall in Denver last year to help draw spring into our tea time.  See this original purchase post

Last year, Johanna from Germany with her Silber-Rosen Blog sent me so much information on this tea set.  Wasn't that sweet?  She gave me a link to the history of this tea set.  

I hope you are enjoying hot tea this winter.  The aroma of a nice cup of tea is like therapy itself!  I particularly enjoy Seattle's Market Spice Cinnamon Orange on these cold snowy days!

Winter is here - and snow abounds
Tulips and daffodils -
Remain the the ground

Tea in the kitchen

Brings comfort and joy
Let's pour a cup - yes -
I'll have some more!

 How is your family -

 How is your life?
Tell me your passions -
 Your secrets delights!  

I will be linking this post to some other tea blogs:
Tea Cup Tueday and Tuesday Cuppa Tea and a Return to Loveliness
and Share Your Cup Thursday and Home Sweet Home
and The Rose Garden in Malevik

One last update:  It is snowing like crazy at lunchtime! I hope you will join me this week with a link from your blog - a post on anything to do with tea and please include a link back to this post as well.

Your wildflower teaset is so lovely and so pretty with the spring flowers on your table. Our last frost day is June 1st for putting in the garden, but I always start buying annuals when they first are available in stores around Mother's Day. You wrote such a sweet poem, you are so talented in many things! Thank you for hosting your tea party and have a wonderful week!

Ruthie Miller said...

Love the teaset! Beautiful! How nice that you know the history! I love your poem as well! Thanks for hosting such a lovely spring tea! And for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Your wildflower set is pretty Bernideen, reminds of my Lennox Butterfly Meadow. Sweet poem, aren't you talented!

Terri said...

Hello Bernideen,
What a lovely post. First off, I love the poetry. Second, your yearning for spring is familiar to me too. I have been looking for the signs even though the 20th is several weeks away yet! We are eager!
your tea is lovely. Beautiful vintage china!

Rosemary and Thyme said...

What a lovely and sweet Tea Set. All the colors and joy of spring.. Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week.

Marilyn Miller said...

Your tea set is indeed beautiful. Loved the poem too. Our daffodils should be blooming by this coming weekend with just a bit more sun. Starting to see a few pink blossoms too. So I am regaining hope for sunnier days.

I can understand why a teatime evoking memories of spring is welcome. I remember many years ago, actually, at least 4 decades, when I was very young, our family all dressed in summer attire was traveling cross country . We came to your awesome state and lo... we stepped out of our motel room into a winter wonderland. Us wearing shorts, and COLD !Yes, it was May and we were traveling from the south where it was already very hot.

Your tea set is so pretty.

Thank-you for hosting this tea time. It is a pleasure for me.

Beth said...

Your teaset is so beautiful, Bernideen! I too am anxious for spring!

Joy said...

Such a pretty tea set! You can have springtime indoors any time with it.

My Cottage Diary said...

Darling, darling tea set, Bernideen! Loved this beautiful post! You gardeners in blogland are really inspiring me to get out and plant seeds/flowers this spring! I'm looking forward to loads of fun and satisfaction (besides the work!). God Bless. Bess

Unknown said...

What a breath of sunshine your teapot brings..I adore the wild flowers and I bet taking tea from this set makes you smile more so than the tea!

Michele said...

So sorry that I am so late- thank you so much for hosting.

I love that tea set - sure does look springy and lovely in the middle of this what-appears-to-be-to-me LONG winter!


Olga Poltava said...

Such beautiful tea set. I also love your lacy tablecloth and doily.
Here in California it already feels like spring. The trees are blooming, and the weather is warm and sunny.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Bernideen, that beautiful tea set definitely says "Spring" - what a beauty!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

What a lovely teaset! I hope you are safe and warm while it's snowing. We rarely have snow in Brittany, but the weather has been unusually cold all month.

Angela McRae said...

What a glorious tea set, Bernideen! I love-love-love it! Always surprised when I see something genuinely unique, and this definitely is. That little curlicue knob on the top of the teapot and sugar bowl has my heart ... how fun that you got some info on the set, too. Perfect set as you wait for spring!

Such a beautiful tea set. Surely it should help to coax Spring to come our way. Love your sweet poem! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
