We had a lovely summer day today after yet another week of rain and heavy showers. So much of the west is experiencing terrible forest fires, so I guess we should be thankful that our Oregon has been spared. My heart just goes out to those families who have lost their homes. I am thankful I can share my teacup for Miss Spencer's Teacup Thursday from my little home in Troutdale.
I love cornflowers or bachelor buttons. Mine haven't grown too big yet but I have hopes that they will soon be as pretty as this picture.
My cup and saucer is by Hammersley and is English made bone china. It so sweet and I love the color. The saucer has a lovely embossed raised design in the china as you can see in this photo.
Cornflowers once grew wild in the fields in the UK. They are easy to grow and fun to work into summer bouquets. They look wonderful with daisies. They are annuals but will often seed down themselves. Mine last way into the fall. You can find white and pink cornflowers but I favor the blue ones!
