Teacup Thursday, Pink and Yellow Roses

Hi and welcome to Teacup Thursday. We have finally achieved summer here in Washington state on the Olympic Peninsula...although how long it will last is anyone's guess! But we are loving it! Now we call it summer because we are getting into the 70s! I know, that's nothing compared to what a lot of you have been experiencing.  According to the news yesterday, the US has had the warmest June on record! We used to live in a heat are with regular summer temperatures over 100, so I absolutely love this temperate area and don't mind the rain. I just don't do heat well! It's been warm enough I have to water our lavender outside...for the first time this year!

American-style iced tea is the perfect drink for a hot, sunny day.  It's never really caught on in the UK, probably because the last time we had a hot, sunny day was back in 1957.

But roses is what I wanted to share today.  A lovely English bone china teacup with lush pink and yellow roses. There are lots of roses in my neighborhood, and I love them visually, but have never liked the scent...probably because I am allergic to most of them. But I absolutely love looking at them!  This teacup is by Royal Kent, England which was one of the newer English potters that sprang up for awhile in the 1950-1960s when some of the larger potteries were amalgamating or closing. It actually operated until the early 1980s, when it sort of petered out. But Royal Kent made some nice bone china items. I think this is such a pretty, summery teacup. Perfect for a cup of tea with the paper on the deck in the morning, or for tea in the shade with a book in the afternoon.  For more info on the teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.

Depending on when we get some home chores finished today, we may be going for a picnic. If so...I hope I'll remember to take my camera and remember to take some photos!...I have been know to forget until we are heading home.

I am joining the following today:
