Wareham - Bits & Pieces 5/8

Something that caught my eye. Outside the same shop as yesterday I found this pot with a cup and saucer plant in it, most unusual.

This certainly is eye catching lBrian, did you buy anything?
Brian Walbey: I didn't make a purchase but Maureen did if I recall.

I don't have one of those plants on my balcony, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Nor do we on out patio Ray.
Oh I see those all the time... NOT! The plant growing out of the one is almost creepy!
Brian Walbey: Yes that one single proper plant is a bit odd isn't it.
What a fabulous shop Brian, such interesting things.
Brian Walbey: Yes it has all sorts inside Sally.

The Mad Hatter must be just around the corner ;o)
Brian Walbey: I think the Mad Hatter would love this Mike.
Mixed china is all the rage now for Wedding receptions.
Brian Walbey: That is interesting, catering courtesy of recent car boot sales smile

Odd way to show off the cups and saucers, Brian
Brian Walbey: I certainly thought it was quite a novel idea.
These are fun Brian. I tried planting in an old teapot in the garden but it wasn't a great success
Brian Walbey: Our daughter Caroline gave Maureen a great big cup and saucer planter last year with bulbs in for the garden, no doubt it will be used again this year.

but very. very English! I own such a flowery cup and plate, decorated with strawberries. Allover you can see flower ornaments in old merry England. The pot could be a jongleur who lets dance the cups and saucers.
Brian Walbey: They are typical of the cups used by the posh people for afternoon tea aren't they.
Very novel, Brian! I wonder if the garden was full of these? wink
Brian Walbey: Your thinking of a China garden I presume Martin smile

Perhaps its a variation of keeping dishes spinning, giving each rod a little joggle to ensure the dish does not crash down. Never seen it with caps and saucers, though smile
Brian Walbey: It's quite unusual isn't it.

The Mad Hatter has just had a tea party?
Brian Walbey: Indeed John.
I always wondered where cups and saucers came from, Brian. smile
Unusual indeed Brian. Well spotted and captured!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Something Alice in Wonderlandish about this, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed there is Graeme.
This is a very cute display and good idea.
Brian Walbey: Most unusual isn't it.
