Teacup Thursday #55~Forget-Me-Not

I did a wee bit of gardening today after  I spent some time with my dad. I noticed lots of my Forget-Me-Not sweet little blue flowers were everywhere. Tasha Tudor loved these little gems and when she passed away, I spread tons of seeds in my flower beds. They have been coming up every year and they make me happy.

So, I thought it would be a great week to feature my Royal Albert Forget-Me-Not teacup for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. I really like the shape of the cup and of course, the colors are lovely.

When I was outside today, I snapped a couple pictures from my garden to share with my blog friends.

Look who's peeking at the beautiful teacup! It's a corgi...a Tasha Tudor corgi. Perfect color too. The corgi was produced for one of Tasha's companies  in the past. He's quite charming and well made. It's marked Tasha Tudor on the bottom.

I am hoping that the weather will cooperate and warm up next week so I can start planting my flowers. I always make myself wait until May and I'm ready to go. Happy planting and think flowers.

Linda, I have a couple of teacups in that exact same pattern. (I know there are pictures of it somewhere in my past tea posts.) Your little corgi's jacket is a perfect color match! I love forget me nots! My wedding china is Memory Lane. I have tried to grow them before, without much sucess. I got some more seeds and am trying again this year.

The corgies are so cute. I love forgetmenots. We use to have them all over the place at the farm house. Love the tea cups and the photo of Tasha.

I dearly love forget me nots! They're also the state flower of Alaska! I guess because of the sentiment and the color. I love your teacup and your fox is charming! I'm late for TT.

The tea cup is gorgeous! I have not seen a prettier FMN tea cup!
