Tulip Love

I love this time of year when the tulips are plentiful in the store.
I actually started this little vignette on the counter when the daffodils came to our grocery store.  They were so inexpensive that I had several bouquets around the house.  
Now they are gone, and the tulips are here.

The bunch from Costco was large enough for a few in my new little vase from Ebay.

In honor of the yellow I changed out the books in my living area too.  All yellow and black.

Sorry it's not closer but the group of books on the mantel changed too,  I think I had the red and black up there for 6 years.  I am not like the rest of blog land, if I like something I seldom change:-)

And, just because I am so happy they came up, here is a shot of my daffodils last month.
I bought the bulbs in the fall, and we never planted them.
Bob discovered them this spring and planted them in February I think.  I never thought they would come up but here's the proof.

So many of my favorite spring flowers don't grow in Texas that I am so happy daffodils will!

Have a blessed Easter!
We have much for which to be thankful.



Beautiful living room and pretty changes you did. The yellow tulips are lovely and so is your garden with the daffodyls! I love yello for Spring and Summer. Yeah, I don't change the look or things I have in my living room, den, etc., except in the dining room and that is mostly for tablescapes. I don't redecorate for every season either.
Have a blessed Easter.

Those tulips are gorgeous (and so is your home) :) I've never tried to grow daffodils, but now I might do just that. I love yellow flowers. Especially the yellow rose. ;)

Sue,your daffodils are beautiful! I'm like you...I don't change things up too frequently. If I like's staying indefinitely. I will add a few seasonal touches here and there; but, if I love something, it stays until the "love fest" is over. Lol! I wish you and your beautiful family a very Happy Easter!

As usual, it's beautiful. Every room in your home is just lovely to me. Your taste is just so impeccable.

As for the tulips, I join you in the tulip love. I am crazy about a pitcher or vase full of droopy ones.

Yellow is so happy and sunny, and just right for spring! I love that you got daffodils and tulips!
I especially love the living room with the mantel. I want to have a visit with lemonade and ginger snaps in there. Perhaps a book club meeting! Only books with yellow covers though....
