Tulip Vignettes



                                                       I love when the tulips appear in
                                                      the grocery stores as it brightens
                                                      my day just looking at a cheerful
                                                     bouquet of them in our home.
                                                        I also love that they are grown right
                                                        here on Prince Edward Island by Vanco.
                                       I spent a good part of the day making over some
                                       curtains that I bought before Christmas at a thrift
                                       shop and doing some tweaking in our library.

                                                          Some early touches of spring color.



                             We got a little snow today and tomorrow promises to
                                       be sunny but colder.Hopefully, it will be a good
                                      photography day.

                                                         Thank you for visiting!

What an amazing colour they are. The wind is howling outside and temperatures are dropping. A little 'Spring' is welcomed. Deb

Tulips are beginning to show up in our super markets as well. I made a quick run into Whole Foods today and paused to look at the bouquets of tulips. I should go back and pick up a bouquet. I dearly love tulips.

The look outside shows the winter, but this tulips let us dream of the spring.
Wonderful. I love the color.

Hi
Tulips are beautiful. I keep them in the fridge without water during night, then it is fresher much longer.
Have a nice day.

You are so right! There is nothing like a bunch of fresh flowers to perk up our homes!

They look gorgeous! I'm hoping to buy some tomorrow. They bring a lot of cheer to the cold winter days.

Love the "new" curtains! Don't you love a great thrift store find? I haven't had much luck at our local thrift stores yet, but with 3 little boys 8 and under we don't get to many. ha
