Perfectly Pink Tulips.....





 What is it about Tulips????


Especially Pale Pink Tulips... 


These joined me over a week ago....


And they still look perfect...


I love when they splay out....almost like they are bending to the light....


Did you know that Tulips continue to grow....even after they are cut....


They say if you put a copper penny in the bottom of the vase....


It will keep them from drooping....


I have done this....sometimes it works....


Sometimes it doesn't.... 


Do you buy yourself Flowers?


I try to keep fresh flowers in the house at all times...


Just kinda makes you feel good...


You know???


Enjoy.......   





















Kinda of a drab day here...

Had some rain earlier...

Still on the warmish side...

But, that is all going to change...

Got some groceries in...

 Beef Stew in the Crock-Pot...

Bit of laundry going on....

Ran into a nice friend at the grocery store, and talked way too long...:o)








On the menu tonight....

Baked Maple Syrup Salmon filet...

Yukon Gold mashed taters...   

Fresh Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese.....  


   Hope you all had a Perfectly Pink Day....

         Vivian will be here shortly for a visit...can't wait!!!



      Enjoy your evening....

                Cheers!   :o)

  1. Beautiful photos Linda. I love tulips, as you know, and am currently enjoying a beautiful bouquet of coral carnations that are now over a week old and still looking very fresh. I like how your added a shelf across the top of your bay window and also the bottom of it for display. It looks very nice. I also like your sofa and coffee table. It's sunny and warm at +8 here. Yay! Rain is coming though.

  4. Those pink tulips tinged with white look so delicate. How lucky you are that they lasted so long.
    The sky photos from the previous post were great, thought I had commented but guess I didn't ... am I getting older and forgetful?

  6. I do buy myself flowers! When I was poor as poor could be I would buy myself carnations because they were cheap and lasted forever.

  10. It continues to be drab, but spring is just around the corner.
    Your tulips are quite cheery. I don't typically buy myself flowers, nor do I like to cut them from my own gardens, but maybe I should. :0)

    1. Absolutely you should Martha...why not enjoy them indoors as well...Do you grow a lot of flowers in your garden??
