and lots more!
I usually prefer bone china to stoneware, but my yard is finally filled with tulips so I wanted to share this Franciscan set called Tulip Time. Now, my tulips are pink & red & yellow...I suppose there are blue tulips, but I don't have any in the yard. This set, often called a teacup trio, was made in England between 1963-1973. In 1973 production was moved to the USA. I really like the retro colors of green & turquoise. Cool!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had quite a bit of sun among the clouds and everyone really enjoyed spring. This last weekend was the beginning of a week long celebration here in Sequim, Washington called the Irrigation Festival. Yep...you heard right...Irrigation Festival. We even have an Irrigation Festival queen and her court! Sequim, in the the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains of Olympic National Park gets a very small percentage of the rain the rest of the area gets. The area is actually considered a prairie...complete with a large Roosevelt Elk herd that gives us our city symbol, Bucky The Elk.
Highway 101 bypasses (just) the city, and where else that I know of are flashing signs warning of an elk herd close to the highway that are triggered by radio collars on some of the herd. Luckily, we have only seen them off the road...but there have been a lot of car/elk collisions. Below...a herd on the road and an elk with a radio collar. I'll have to take a photo of the sign...never thought of it!
Elk are the nuisances that deer are...only bigger. But they certainly are a different type of urban pest...
Have fun visiting the other teacups!
