Reluctant Spring

"Reluctantly spring makes her way.  At winter's edge she hesitates, as if she feared to come too soon.  The primrose halts, the wind-flower waits, for spring's green cloak is flecked with snow, and in her tresses wild and bright -- a dew of frost glints in the gold and sparkles in the sun's cold light."

~ Patience Strong ~

Although spring is a reluctant entertainer, a teacup and saucer in snowdrop theme can bring simple joy and gracious hospitality to those who patiently wait for its arrival.

  1. Spring is even reluctant here in FL this year!

    Pretty tea cup!


  2. Oh, so lovely. I enjoyed the poetry and couldn't help but think those on the East Coast would agree that spring is indeed reluctant this year.

  3. Hi La Tea Dah....Definitely, your post is right on the money. Loved the quote and photo. Hope you have a super day. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

  5. Sweet little tea cup...

  6. Spring will soon reach you I am sure. In the meantime your cup is a touch of springtime. I often bring out a cup with tulips for this time of year. They do remind us of what is coming.

  7. What a pretty little tea cup! :)

    Spring is still weeks off for us but I'm still dreaming of the garden anyway.
