|So, today, I stopped in for my "fix"!!! I purchased a large bunch of pink tulips, huge bunch of pinky/mauvey mums, a hot pink kalanchoe, a variegated leaf pink violet, a georgeous purple with white ruffly edges, and a potted perennial muscari....|
|The tulips are in a vase in the family room, but they are still closed pretty tightly....will get a shot of them when they are in their glory...|
Oh yeah....and a potted Basil..the one I left behind was pretty shrivelled...I use it so often that I find it less expensive to buy the potted ones...and they smell heavenly..
|I put some of the mums in my foyer, next to my Easter Bunny...|
|The Muscari ended up in one of my hob nailed planters, in the powder room...next to another Bunny!!!I will plant those up in the garden, when the soil is workable...but for now, the powder room is cool and dark....a great place for bulbs..|
|The pink violet made it to my bedroom dresser...I replaced a violet that needs a bit more TLC....moved him to the main floor, where I can keep my eye on him....:o)|
|The kalanchoe ended up in the kangaroo planter...|
|Picked up this shoe in Florida at a thrift shop...50cents!!! Did I mention that I also collect ceramic shoes? Well.....I do...|
|Some of the mums ended up in my bunny planter, that my late brother Tommy gave me...it is very dear to me, and always gets a few flowers for our weekend dinners in the dining room...|
The purple frilly violet got a spot beside my computer...again moving another violet to a more attentive position...I need to start fertilizing, so they will re-flower for me
Remember....I was away for a whole month...my plants were well taken care of by my son and daughter.....thanks again.....:o)
You should pick yourself up some flowers...it certainly can lift your spirits....and brighten your day...
