Spring is in the air...

Spring is most definitely in the air where I live. What better way to welcome this beautiful season than with a gorgeous flower arrangement? Pink peonies are perfect in a plain glass vase and would brighten any table. A watering can makes a perfect vase for tulips - not to mention a clever replacement for a front door wreath. What could be more cheerful than a display like that (except perhaps the one below)? I haven't quite figured out how they would use an umbrella in such a way - and keep the flowers watered - but isn't it lovely? It's a perfect illustration of spring.

I have been busy getting my home ready for the change in seasons. You know, out with the winter colors, back with the soft pastels and furniture covers that I adore so much. We have a beautiful basket of tulips that are well on their way to blooming in a few weeks, and various other plants outside have started to reawaken. I realize for some people still inundated with snow, spring seems far in the future, even though it's less than three weeks away. Even if its arrival is belated, I hope you'll remember to take advantage of its special gifts and surround yourself with its beauty.
