Fourth Teacup Tuesday in July

 Thistles are a favorite wild flower and they are growing in my backyard right now.  Here are a couple of pictures.   Even though they are wild they are so vibrant I think.

The reason I am showing these is because of the cup and saucer I am featuring this week.
 It is a thistle design by Colclough China.  Couldn't find a name for the pattern.b  You can't see very well from these pictures but the background is a very pale pink.

  Hope you liked the cup and saucer I chose this week.

Meanwhile Thanks for visiting my site today.......

After you visit my post today be sure to check out  these other tea posts.

A thistle pattern seems quite rare. Very pretty!

I have 2 cups with thistles on them but they are different from yours. And thistles are growing wildly along the roadsides right now. A beautiful combination! Pamela
