Daffodils in a Brown Betty Pot Make Me Happy


This pot with daffodils sits on my kitchen table right now.

Brown Betty teapots were some of the first teapots in Britain to be able to be purchased by the common public, and they helped bring tea to the common man. They can still be purchased by the Caledonia Pottery Co.

The daffodil is the national flower of Wales, and calls the mind back to Dewi San (or St. David) the patron St. of Wales, and a bettle in which he supposedly called the Cymry to put a leek in their hats. Okay, for now you'll have to read somewhere else for yourself, and just know that daffodil replaced the leek, simply because in Welsh it's name is St. Peter's Leek.

I really like that story ... but I love those colors together. They are fabulous. They are a quilt waiting to happen.

Sonja,

If you quilt it you might have to add a red dragon in the corner somewhere to pull the whole story together. ;-)

Cymru am byth!
