WELCOME to my first glimpse of sunshine ( yawn). I'm a little late for Teatime Tuesday , but better late than never. I do hope you enjoy my seasonal Cherry/Plum blossom photos from Japan ... with your tea.
How special it is to gaze into a cup filled with sunshine and ponder the stirring of nature, in-between the folly of old man winter, who just can't make up his mind on whether to stay or blow away . I really do wish he would be more decisive. Don 't you!!!
However, my " Blossomtime " cup doesn't mind, dilly dallying about the weather, as long as there's time to chat and share a cup of tea with you all.
In Japan, the cherry/plum blossoms are budding and soon will be blooming. ( sigh) ... Perhaps .... It's a time to seek transformation and become like Maria, from the " Sound of Music ", running through the fields singing.( ha ha)
Ok ... so it's still below zero, I'm wrapped in an over stuff coat that makes the Pillsbury Dough Boy look thinner , not to mention that my boots weigh 5 lbs each ... I quess, running through the ice fields/hills in joyous song is much like being a baby elephant pirouetting in "Swan Lake".
I will simply attempt to loosen up the old art of transformation to get me through the winter blahs ... It is a ridiculously, healthy alternative to becoming melancholy with yet another month of winter. It works for Me ( Hee Hee)
March is a ho-hum month, that begs for a brilliant cup filled with a fragrant tea.What's your favourite, flavour of the day Ladies?
I thought ... Why not infuse myself with a shade of colour to brighten my perspective. Why not reminisce about Cherry blossoms and the beauty that is just around the corner.
My, harbinger of Spring is a simple Stafforshire cup that oozes with synergy ...mmmmm .... such a good feeling !!!! Even the saucer has a brilliant persona( above) that makes the spirit soar. Of course, I do love bright pinks . Do you have a special teacup that enfolds you with energy ? It could be the colour , the pattern or just the shape of the teacup. This one is mine!!!!
Fondness for Cherry Blossoms, is an extension of sharing in the celebration of many Cherry Blossom Festivals in Japan, where nature is honoured on a yearly basis ... Of course , walking through streets filled with millions pink floating petals does it for me ( Ha ha) ... It's truly a gorgeous time of the year .
Cherry Blossom tea is a delightful tease for the olfactory nerve and the palate. Would you like another cup? I've have just enough petals for another pot of tea!!!
