Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

Nostalgic is defined as a  bittersweet longing for things, persons, or situations of the past.

These small pink roses and the  Royal Albert teacup evoke a bittersweet longing for my  mother who passed away 6 months ago.

She gave me the teacups as a present and the roses came from a plant, now growing in my garden, which she cultivated from a cutting.

Truly a bittersweet reminder of her.
