Springing on up in here!
Kroger had these bee-U-tiful tulips the other day...and I had to get some! I love tulips...and these are such a pretty color! I wanted to make a little springtime vignette for the kitchen table...
So I grabbed my cute little silver birds...who will flitter and flutter into each and every season with me...cause I love em that much...
This one is nestled in some mossy rocks.....
Don't you love how he picks up the pinks and the greens from the flowers...and yours truly...twisting and turning as I try and act like a photographer...
I picked up this old silver candlestick at a yard sale years ago. I Threw some moss on it, to give my little friend a post to perch upon...
doesn't he look comfy!
Back in October or November I ordered
some Paperwhite bulbs from a local school fundraiser. I had always wanted to try them indoors. When they came in...I didn't have any potting soil...and just never planted them...but a week or 2 ago, I discovered via somebody's awesome blog, (sorry, but I don't remember who's) that you could actually grow them in rocks and water...which I did have on hand....
I purchased and planted them at the same time...but their not growing at the same rate...but they are so fun to watch...you can almost see them grow!
You probably already knew you could plant them this way...but in case you didn't...and would like to try some yourself...you just put your rocks in your container, set the bulbs on top...add a couple more to stable the bulbs...and then add water just to the bottom of the bulb...easy breezy...and less messy than dirt!
Anyway...I put it all together on a silver tray...and my kitchen table is dressed for spring. I love the combination of the pink, green and shiny silver...LOVE!
Here's a couple more pictures...just because...
I know you're excited for spring too...
and I know...
because a little birdie told me!
Have a great day!
