Just a Whisper ...

The beauty of crocus blooms ...

 
it is a time of rebirth, of new beginnings.
 
 
Today, as we celebrate Easter, I hope you will join me for a cup of tea.
 
 
A beautiful prairie crocus teacup was a pleasant surprise ...
 
tucked away in my Easter basket!
 
 
Elegant Montrose style cup.
 
 
Please help yourself to a sugar cookie decorated with pink and purple sanding sugar.
 
 
I think they are too cute to eat  :-)
 
 
We saw our first Robins this week.
 
 
  Spring is in the air ...
 
Easter blessings to you and your family!

Happy Easter, Donna! Yes, it is new beginnings and I look forward to it! Love the purple color you chose for your post along with the darling tea cup. And I would be delighted to have one of those sugar cookies! They remind me of the ones my aunt would buy from the bakery when I was little. Enjoy this blessed day!

Happy Easter Donna! We had four robins in our backyard yesterday. They looked fat and happy! I love spring.

Hi Donna,
Your Easter teacup is a sweet surprise! I love the Montrose shape and the pale crocuses are so pretty. I haven't seen a robin yet but I expect I will before the week is out. Thank you for sharing and coming to tea today.

Blessings,
Sandi

What a beautiful teacup and cookies--they are both gorgeous! I love crocus as well. The robin looks like a bird with a strong purpose--I like him.

Hello Donna,
Yes, spring is in the air here too
: )
Your Easter surprise tea cup is very pretty! I love the shape as well as the pretty flowers. You don't see crocus flowers on tea cups as often as we would like. Yours has beautiful coloring, like your paintings there. Those are so soft and serene. Just lovely!
Hugs,
Terri

What? You still get an Easter basket? Darn that bunny, he forgot me. Oh well, I was on a get away with hubby and found plenty of goodies. Your teacup is darling and I adore the bloom of the sweet Crocus. Saw two Robins here today too. Yahoo! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

Beautiful pictures!

I love crocus flowers - I'm always intrigued how they push their way through very hard, unyielding ground (usually around the roots of trees) and then create beautiful dainty posies of flowers like something a little Victorian girl would carry. Your teacup and saucer are beautiful!
