Well I'm hoping to get some more gardening in this weekend, but, being a Bank Holiday, the weather forecast isn't looking too promising. Here instead of, and just in case I can't get into the garden to take any photos. is part of my china collection. If you click on the images I think they'll enlarge. Isn't it wonderful? It's "Green Fingers" made by Beswick in the 50s and I love the images. Very quaint and stylised and very much of its time. A gorgeous green that reminds me of the teacups that used to be in the staffroom when I was at Primary School (although I'm not as old as the china).. Look at those skirts and waists on those ladies and the lovely ponytails. I'd like to say I looked as gorgeous when I was weeding the garden or daintly tending to my flowers underneath the tree but I wouldn't be able to get away with that one. Can you see the man posing, leaning on his spade, pipe in hand watching over things ... Idyllic I know but I love it.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and hope you get to spend some time outside (wearing nipped at the waist skirts and your ponytails high of course).
