My dear husband brought home a bouquet of tulips along with the groceries last evening. I re-cut the stems and arranged them in a vase for the table.
This is my view from my easy chair in the family room. Seeing those flowers on the table makes me happy. After the glitter and color of the holidays, I'm enjoying the serenity of a tidy home.
I have seen bouquets of daffodils on some of my English blog friend's tables which inspired me to get some, but we don't have any available here, at least Costco doesn't have any. But they did have tulips!
The flowers have gotten bigger since I put them in the vase, I am enjoying watching for them to open and change.
And with these Spring-y colors on my lap as I crochet, it's bringing me hope that Winter will pass quickly and the temperatures will warm and the flowers in our wild farm garden will bloom once again.
I'm off to drive through the icy winds to plunge myself into a pool of cool water. Egads. But with that said, swimming is my favorite form of exercise and I need to keep my heart strong.. and so.. ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Right?
