Show and Tell Friday


I've been meaning to participate in Show and Tell Friday hosted by Kelli for a little while now.

I finally had a chance to hang some plates my Mom gave me and I love them. Thanks so much Mom



They are bone china by Royal Albert and called Shakespeare's Flowers. Each has a different name with a Shakespearian quote on the back.

This one is called Meadows with Delight. "This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,may prove a beauteous flower when we next meet." Romeo and Juliet


Next is Primose Beds. "To his music plants and flowers, Ever sprung: as sun and showers.They had made a lasting spring." Henry VIII

Here's Glorious Morning. " Full many a glorious morning I have seen. Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye. Kissing with golden face the meadows green. Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy." Sonnet

And finally, here is Russet Mantle. " Three beauteous springs to yellow autumn turned. In process of the season I have seen." Sonnet



I hope you enjoyed this little trip in Shakespeare's garden!

These are exquisite! I love the way you have them displayed. They make me think how much I would like to have an English cottage garden. Thank you for sharing them!
