Spring.... according to Webster... a)that season of the year following winter , in which plants begin to grow, b) any period of beginning. We are all anticipating spring and the abundant fresh green growth that accompanies its arrival. Just this morning I noticed some vibrant green sprouts poking thru the earth - daffodils, crocus, or tulips beginning their journey to blossoming. In the meantime, this little spring treasure leaped into my hands while strolling about a second hand shop recently; sweet and delicate bone china, made in England, it was smiling up at me, beckoning me to purchase it. It's a small two cup pot with a little sugar and creamer to complete the set, simply perfect for a spot of tea on the few remaining cold winter's nights as we wait in anticipation as the plants begin to grow.
