Seeing Green

I am ready to see some green.  Here for St. Patrick's Day I just pulled out an assortment of green props for a tea.  We have melting snow!  Not to get too excited though, the grass underneath is nowhere near green yet, soon though!    

Here is a new tea mug covered with beautiful green ferns and the scientific names of each variety.  The handle on this mug is even pretty.  The bottom of the mug is printed with Rosanna L'Orangerie, Antique Botanical Fern Prints Circa 1860.

So, here in the Midwest we are hoping for some green soon.

When I think of "seeing green" it always makes me think of Kermit the Frog.  That is a sure sign of spring when you hear the frogs singing.  I always love to hear that!

Sherry, I'm thinking green tonight too as I try to plan for St. Pat's Day. Your cups are delightful. Here's to seeing green soon! '-)

We're all in a green frame of mind with St. Paddy's coming up. Love the mug! And the Wedgwood Embossed Queensware cup in the stack!

We all need some green now. After weeks of seeing only snow everywhere I am finally seeing green grass. HA! HA!

Sylvia said...

Your green fern mugs are very lovely.
I am ready to see green grass in my lawn, so tired of the dormant stage.

You picked some lovely green mugs and cups. We all hope that Spring is on the way. Happy Tea Day!

Very pretty and spring-y! Yes, we are getting some melting here, too. Love the slightly warmer weather!

One of the many things I love about spring is the singing of the frogs. That is music to my ears! Your images are so pretty and fresh. Can't beat a pop of green to have everyone thinking springtime and St. Patrick's Day. We still have mountains of snow but it is slowly going down. We even have a wee bit of grass along the walk to the side door. Feeling hopeful. Thank you for sharing your lovely post and joining me for Tea Time.

Love, love, love the fern cups. I need them. Ok, I want them, but if I saw them at the store they'd jump to the need column. I just signed up as a follower. Looking forward to new post and catching up on the older ones.
