Teacup Thursday

Another Teacup Thursday hosted by Miss Spenser's Blog!  This trio is a favourite of mine, one of a series of six for Paragon designed by famous rose grower Harry Wheatcroft, who was born in Nottingham where I lived for 6 years, it is called 'Mme Ch Sauvage'.  

The sunny flash of lemon inside the teacup is perking me up today while it feels cold indoors and out!

We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week ...
The bottom is out of the Universe.

Rudyard Kipling 

Take care,
