frog tea!

I had to work hard on this limerick, and the wife supplied critical input on rhymes with "throw up".

Frog tea WON'T make you throw up,
This is how it might brew up:
Boil water until hot,
Pour into your teapot.
Frog is ON the teapot, not in, with a matching blue cup.

(teaset by Gary Rith)

Very nice, Gary! The pots and the limerick. That frog has a great gesture!.(who me?!) Good glaze the way the blue and green overlap and the breaking over the texture.
