Flowers always brightens up a persons day, no matter what's gone on before them. Vibrant bunches of Tulips like this are especially warming in any home.




Love your ripple tutorial ! Mine is growing nicely. Like you I love marbles too.



Could you please share where the pattern for the edging of the multi coloured granny square that you made. It is mostly blues and greens together.



I love tulips too, together with peonies and sunflowers they are my favourite flower. You bought a lovely bunch! Sleep tight! Pati x

Did you know Tulips keep growing after they are cut? That is why you can arrange perfectly arrange them, then the next day they have moved. :) I keep cutting them so they don't get so leggy.


So glad you went back and picked up more!!!! Eight would not do!!!


Isn't it wonderful how a simple thing like flowers can lift the spirit just by being there? The greatest joys in life are found in the simple things! Enjoy!

You most certainly are worth it dear Lucy :-) If anyone can spread twenty stems with flair - it is you!
Happy weekend xx


I've been having tulip moments too. When the grey and the gloom outside gets too much the only thing that will do it is a bunch of pink tulips (oh, and perhaps some chocolate too?)


There's an old proverb that when you have only two coins, you should spend one for bread and the other for hyacinths for the soul. I think tulips for the soul would qualify, too.


Ah, that feeling of being 'without', just for an hour or so... A bunch of tulips like that puts the icing on a wee trip like that!
