Playing with Tulips




Buckets of fresh tulips, yellow, white, fuschia, red and pink, greeted me as I popped into the grocery store yesterday. Resist? I couldn't. I didn't even try. Three bunches of these pale pink beauties found their way into my basket.


They sit now, in a polished silver jug, on my living room mantel. I walk into the room and my eye is drawn there. I feel the corners of my mouth lifting. Grey and grizzle may reign outdoors, but tulips bloom on my mantel.

  3. Oh, Lorrie. I looked when I was in a grocery store yesterday and saw one sad looking bunch of tulips. I've been craving them and will have to try another place.

    Your pink ones are soft and delicate. Although I can't see the silver jug, I can imagine it gleaming in the light. Maybe I should go on a tulip hunt right now!

    Thanks for linking to Sunlit Sunday and bringing flowers.

  12. Oh, those are beautiful! I picked up a pot of yellow ones yesterday, and, like you, I am enjoying the cheer that they bring.

  13. Ahhh...very worth it for the collective smiles they bring. (I have yet to see any tulips in the market...guess they figure if we're buried in snow that no tulips are needed.)

  29. Oh, what a luxury to buy 3 buckets of tulips. You inspire me to pick up some pretty flowers when I am out on errands today.

    That pork tenderloin looks fantastic. I am going to show that picture to Steve as inspiration for my dinner tonight.
