an unexpected garden...
dear friends!! on my way to the tea house today, I became quite distracted… finding many unexpected gardens along the way... and flowers everywhere!!
these blossoms were designed long ago for the homer laughlin china company in east liverpool ohio... and applied by a skilled worker to the small oval platter that would eventually find its way into my hands, into my home, and onto my tea table… I wonder how many others have visited this garden through the years…
deep thanks to cyost for the beauty of her flowers, which brought me joy on this winter night!
may all travelers find gardens!!
and much joy!!
