Hello Dear Readers!!
Happy Monday Morning Blooms Day!!
Here we are (Lidy, Mary, Pam and Me)
presenting our Monday Morning Blooms creations
for your enjoyment and inspiration.
Today’s common theme is Spring Bulbs.
Are you ready for Spring?!!
I think we all are after a winter of cold, snow,
and dreary rainy days.
So this will sure to put a “Spring” in your step towards
the beautiful season of Spring.
My fabulous fellow Monday Morning Bloomers’
images and links to their beautiful
Spring Bulb creations are below.
Today I created a Spring Bulb Centerpiece for the dining room.
My intention was to create a Spring Bulb Centerpiece
using potted Spring bulbs;
however, I was only able to find potted Hyacinths
and then settled for cut Daffodils and Tulips.
I was happy to discover that my bunnies
were not packed away into the abyss,
so they made an early appearance
on the table to welcome in Spring.
I used my trio of vases that I purchased
many years ago from a shop that was marking down
their Christmas items to 75% off.
These vases coordinated with some beautiful angels,
so yes, they included the vases in the sale. Lucky me!
Flowers from …. where else? …. Trader Joe’s.
Now there is a bit of a story
behind this Spring bulb centerpiece on the table.
You will see at the end of this post.
I read a post the other day by Jenna of The Painted Apron.
She received some Tulips from her family
and her grands said that her Tulips look like
they are trying to escape! Yes, they are right!
Now, when I look at a tulip draping down a vase,
I will think of her “boys”.
They certainly have a mind of their own…
I guess that is what makes them special.
I am fortunate, as I look out the kitchen window
here at the Berry Patch House, that my view
is of daffodils blooming in the yard across the street.
A beautiful sea of happy yellow!
As I am writing this post . . .
I am texting back and forth with my niece who lives
near Boulder, Colorado . . .
Here I am writing about Spring and pretty Spring flowers,
and they are in the middle
of a horrible snow storm with Hurricane force winds.
The Denver airport closed and I am so happy
that my hubby is on his way home from Chicago today.
ahead of the storm.
I shall not complain about the rain anymore!
When creating my Spring Bulb Centerpiece
I first grabbed a basket and placed the vases
and potted Hyacinth with the bunnies in it.
However, when photographing it,
I could not get the right angles for decent photos.
Just difficult too photograph and obtain the right feel.
So I took everything out of the basket and
just created a centerpiece on the table itself.
Better! At least for photographing!
The flowers actually went back into the
basket where it remained on the table for a while . . .
and now I am getting ready for my “Sewing Group”
when we rarely sew, knit, or quilt . . .
just eat, chat, and eat some more.
So today, I have disassembled the vignette,
made an arrangement for a friend under the weather,
created a simple arrangement for the “sewing table”
and the breakfast table, where the tulips
are trying to escape! . . . And speaking of escaping,
you can escape to a world of
the most wonderful creations of Spring Bulb flowers
by my most magnificent Monday Morning Bloom friends.

have presented to you!
