Spring Cheer

                                                               Hello everyone,

                                        I hope you are enjoying some spring cheer in your weekend. I was happy to see some daffodils poking up through the ground today even though our temps are just a little above freezing.It is good to know spring is on the way.
                                     I bought these beautiful Parrot tulips at the grocery store recently and had to take a few photos of them to share with you.
                             I love my new bucket from Time Worn Treasures and Antiques- the tulips look so pretty in it but I have visions of beautiful pink peonies in it too.
                               I love the different shades of rose,green and yellow in these tulips.

             Well, just a little spring cheer for you. We change our clocks ahead tonight to daylight saving time so we will enjoy  longer evenings-great for those evening walks!

  p.s. Patti, the teapot of Janice's that you asked about is a Sadler made in England-good luck in your search.

I am honored that Brenda at Cozy Little House did a lovely feature of my blog today.Thank you , Brenda for all those kind words-I really appreciate them.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Ah....tulips. Is there anything more Spring-like than them. They are beautiful and the container is so pretty. Yes, I too would love to see Peonies in there.

Dear Carolyn,

Your tulips look lovely! I bought some purple ones today to put on our mantelpiece.

Lucky you to have your longer evening already. We will change our clocks in two weeks time.

Happy new week!

Hello, Carolyn

My lovely bouquet of peach coloured tulips has dropped its petals, so I'm enjoying yours in their stead.

Have a lovely Sunday.


Alessandra said...

Your tulips are gorgeous like your photos.

Your pretty tulips remind me that spring is just around the corner! Parrot tulips are one of my favorites.

I'm visiting from Brenda's, where your pretty home was featured. It's just lovely and I am so inspired by your garden. I am looking forward to seeing more of it this spring!

Ah, I love your pretty tulips. They really do bring springtime into one's home. Love the bucket from Lori's shop! Hope your new week is off to a lovely start.


Linda said...

Ooh, the parrots are my fave, Carolyn! I have never seen them in the stores here. And, the bucket is a treasure, for sure. Can't wait to see those peonies in it. I'm popping over to Cozy Little House now to say, "Hi".
Wishing you a beautiful new week!

The buckets are just as beautiful as the flowers!
I'm so glad that Spring is right around the corner. My daffodils and peonies are starting to poke theirs heads up through the ground also.
I've seen a few post where they are already blooming, but not yet here in WV.
