This post is in memory of my dear mother who would have been 96 today
and in honour of my mother-in-law who turned 94 on the 22nd ~ both May babies.
I love lily-of-the-valley. I planted some along the foundation of the house and it
has spread all along it and outward under the cedar tree. I have to pull it out
to keep in under control.
This teacup is by Royal Albert and is called, appropriately, Lily-of-the-Valley,
for the sweet month of May.
The flowers are dried lily-of-the-valley. I had to set up this tea last week before
the lilies bloomed as I had to pack away my china cup and saucer.
The little creamer is by Minton.
I picked 2 sprigs of lily-of-the-valley and as you can see they aren't open
yet but they are still sweet and dainty.
I love the tiny bell blossoms and their sweet scent don't you?
Our May days are almost over and we look forward to a new month ~ June.
My kitchen will be taken apart tomorrow ~ no cabinets etc. for over a week!
I'm excited and anxious all at once. I'll let you know how it's going and
take some pictures of the progress. Stay tuned!
Thanks for joining me today and I hope you'll join Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday
