They are gorgeous!Yes, I remember the star-crossed lovers escaping and turning into birds.
I have a few willow pattern plates left by my grandmother (I think), and years ago I supplemented them with this modern interpretation.
I think the modern version of the pattern is quite fun - particularly given the story - but the actual plate is too flat to be really satisfying. The inherited ones, just like yours, have a better ‘lip’ to them, so I prefer using them. View attachment 2385964 View attachment 2385965 View attachment 2385966 View attachment 2385967
Friendship. Have you considered maybe they are trying anything to throw you off so you will leave them alone?
Very affectionate is an understatement. I think they are obsessed with you. I'm quite jealous.Yikes. Are you pulling them from the nest? I feel terrible fighting that natural drive, too. But this year I caved and got chicks for Little Mill. She growled and pecked at them, so I raised them myself. (Which isn’t so bad, ss they are very affectionate!)
