Friday Flowers

 Glowing Ranunculus....tissue paper like flowers with hundreds of petals set against a background of a familiar pattern, but unusually not in blue and white china.
I found this "Willow Pattern" plate just as I was leaving my favourite antiques fair. A last look on a stand by the door and caught a glimpse of two birds.

Further investigation revealed this metal platter, hand made in about 1870 with a wonderful patina.

It would look better with a good clean said the stallholder as I handed over the purchase price.......Never, I said to myself as I left clutching my prize!!!

We had two days of wonderful sunshine this week, and now its back to rain, grey and cold. But there are signs that Spring is on its way....aren't there?

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, welcome to all my new followers and thank you to everyone for looking at my pictures every week. I hope they give you as much pleasure as they give me when I'm taking them.
