Forget - Me - Not Tea

I was given a free packet of forget-me-not flower seeds, and was pleasantly surprised at the abundance of sweet little flowers. I have been cutting them for small arrangements.
I was struck by the similarity to the pattern on my favourite tea cup and saucer- Shelley Dainty Blue
A little tea setting outdoors near the pond seemed in order
A blueberry printed tea towel was pressed into service as a runner.
The tea today was Celestial Blueberry

Thank you for sharing your day with a joyful blue.

Your Shelley teacup is so beautiful and the forget-me-nots do look amazing with it. Such a pretty setting out by the pond too. Lovely posting, Millie, and thank you for sharing with us. Have a lovely day.

I love blue and Shelly, it always sets a great table. Flowers are also the center of the patterns.

What a beautiful table for tea time! I certainly agree that your teacup is one of Shelley's most beautiful patterns. What a cup to cherish! I have never grown forget me nots before and I see how lovely they are for in your arrangement. I like small flowers on the table for tea time. Hope you enjoyed your outdoor tea!

I love that teacup and saw a whole table setting for sale in that pattern at a vintage shop in Hillsborough, NB recently. I'll be sharing a photo of it on my blog soon. Your teatime looks lovely. Have a great September!

Blue and white with touches of green foliage make the perfect outdoor combination. Your outside tea setting is so pretty on a fall day. I heard on the news that you are in for a warm weekend!
