Shrinking Violets & Tea...

I love Spring...
 
it is my favorite season...
it is sweet
&
 full of promise...
 
Spring
shows that all things are possible...
 

so today
I celebrate it
and sip some tea...
 


 
tiny modest violets
in a creamer and strewn about..
 
I love Violets.
 
when I was a girl I remember
picking then at my grandmothers house
tiny bundles in my tiny hands...
 
later
I used to love those sets of bath salts
they were packaged in cubes
and bundled into a row
each a different scent...
 
my favorite cubes were the violet ones...
 


the shy violet,
her head nodding,
unassuming...
 
shrinking
 

 
 

my chintz cup
in the violet pattern..
 
 has no mate,
but is perfect as she is...
 

 
sweet bites
of blueberry loaf...
 

 
a simple tea,
mix matched dishes...
shy violets....
 
delicious,
unassuming,
so sweet.

 
 
Have a Beautiful Day!
