I thought it might be fun to link up with Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.  Her inspiration for this week is "Cuppa."  If you like to play with layers and textures in your photographs, check it out.  For this particular photograph I kept the texture fairly mild and erased a bit of it from the flowers. The color is so brilliant (especially in January), I didn't to cover that up in any way.

There wasn't time to take photos today so this is from the archives. It's a favorite photo backdrop, my neighbor Monica's incredible amaryllis and my teapot and cup. Actually, the cup is from Germany and was my mother's. I used to drink out of cups like those as a child. Very Downton Abbey, don't you think?


  1. Very "english" looking with the white and gold cup and pot and an elegant pretty flower. Lovely!!

  2. Love the tea pot and cup, also love how the light washes over the scene.

  3. such a lovely setting... beautifully presented... thank you for sharing at TT.
