Spring Blooms

                                                                Hello everyone,
                                    I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Here we are getting some
                                    fresh white snow after a week of spring melting. I am happy to
                                    see gently falling snowflakes outside but indoors to be able to
                                   enjoy some spring blooms.        
                                              A hyacinth will soon be blooming in my pretty
                                              transferware teacup.
                                                          I have taken my some of my geraniums up from
                                                          the basement and cut them back but hoping for
                                                          blooms on some of them soon.
                                  In the winter I like to have some small bouquets in pretty vases.

                                                    Even the asparagus ferns add color.
                                                               A tiny campanula for spring color.

                                                             Roses always bring me pleasure.
                                      And I am delighted to have Vanco tulips grown right here on
                             the grocery stores again.
                                  Tulips and a Lady's Slipper teacup ~ perfect!      

                             Brenda from Cozy Little House has a new blog called Color my Decor and
                             I am honored to have  my blog featured on it .....pop in here and check it out!
                             Thank you Brenda ~ I am touched by your sweet words.

                                                                                Thank you for visiting me!

I'm so jealous of all your pretty blooms! I am very taken with the lavender/purple plant on the green. The combination is so pretty! Thanks for the shout out.

Hi Carolyn,
Your blooms are all so pretty. I took some tulips into my mother today. The yellow blooms really brighten up her room. I love your asparagus fern too.
I really enjoyed all your tablescapes over the past year. Thank you for bringing some beauty our way and have a lovely week.

I read the wonderful post about your lovely home on CLH.

Your flowers are beautiful. I need to buy a hyacinth plant.

I learned a little something from your blog today. I have never cut my geranium back and I am wondering now if that is why mine never seem to get any bigger. I am going to have to try that. Enjoy the sweet smell of your Hyacinth. I love them!

Flowers in our homes always bring a wave of joy, but in winter they are really a joy for our heart, thank you so much Carolyn for sharing this joy with us, and for having done it with your wonderful photos, as always :)
Have a lovely week <3

Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this article together.
I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll
just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything.
Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers?
I'd genuinely appreciate it.

I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will
be much more useful than ever before.
