Blue Willow and Lots of Love

I love flowers: All kinds and colors.
But, I REALLY love roses and tulips.
I picked these roses off of our bush that my husband transplanted to this home when we moved here two years ago. They are Gorgeous!!!
The Blue Willow teacup and saucer as well as the bowl next to it seem to be the perfect way to show them off.

The Blue Willow are some of my favorite china, and I don't know why I don't have more of it!!
The crisp blue against the white background is just classic.
For Mother's Day my husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of lovely roses!!!
I thought their color was fantastic!!

And, I was surprised to receive these tulips from both of my sons!
They had them shipped to me, so when they arrived and I opened the box, lo and behold there were these beauties!

So picture this...2 college students living in Houston, discussing what to say on the card.
Evidently they couldn't agree on what to say!
HA! I LOVE IT! It's just like them!!!!
They're so funny!
I had the best Mother's Day...
Hope you all did too!!
I'm linking up with Martha over at Martha's Favorites for Teacup Tuesday here:
as well as Sandi over at Rose Chintz Cottage for Teatime Tuesday here:
Y'all be sure to join in the parties!!!

Hi Doni,
Your sons are so cute and thoughtful too! Your roses and tulips are gorgeous and I love Blue Willow although the only pieces of it that I own, I have hung on a wall. Thank you for joining me today for my tea party. I have you linked up on my post. You have an extra letter in my link there so it doesn't work. Just remove the 'n' between 'sandi' and 'my' and it should work for you. Thanks and hope you're having a beautiful day.
