Garden Fresh

How delightful to   go marketing and return with a dozen  fresh stems of   springy tulips!
Have you noticed the behavior of fresh tulips  in a vase...   this poet stated it so   wondrously...
"They grace my table sweetly as they stand so straight and tall
And then with time they curtsey and they take a humble fall
It’s like their bowing over to give their quiet nod
To their talented creator,…to the Great Almighty God"~ Linda Hogeland

Each one so alike,  yet  behaves so differently,   even in the manner in which   their  tender  petals capture the  light....

 It's no wonder  bunnies gather  around their  draping  beauty  in springtime  to deposit  their   seasonal treasures....brightly  colored  eggs  eager to be   plucked up   by  a  precious   little hand!

 No question about it,  Easter will soon be here....

 and I can  hardly, wait!!!

"All that is sweet, delightful, and amiable in this world, in the serenity of the air, the fineness of seasons, the joy of light, the melody of sounds, the beauty of colors, the fragrance of smells, the splendor our precious stones, is nothing else but Heaven breaking through the veil of this world, manifesting itself in such a degree and darting forth in such variety so much of its own nature."- William Law

Table Top Tuesday@  A Stroll Thru Life
This week Marty is  partnering with The Scoop!


  1. Beautiful arrangements and yes, it would be so nice to know Spring is here...but we're in for another storm tonight! P.S. Nice to meet you!...:)JP

  2. Your tulips are delightful and beautiful! I bought some mini yellow daffodils and a plant called Campanula with small dainty purple and violet flowers; put them all in my kitchen window and, oh my! it looks like Easter!

  3. Lovely blooms. I played too. Mine are here and here.

  4. This is so lovely! With all the white and pastels seen now, I really enjoy your use of darker warm tones that still say "spring"! Well done! Happy Tuesday from the enchanted oven.

  5. Your tulips are lovely - even though I love the flowers from the garden it is always marvelous to come home with a beautiful bouquet! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
