I don’t know about you, but winter has seemed extra-long. In my town we have had many cold, rainy and I will say it, gloomy days.
Much to my surprise, a sweet friend brought me a lovely bunch of tulips on Friday evening and it was a welcome sign that spring is on the way! I simply adore having fresh cut blooms in the house, it is such a decadent luxury.
When you start to see tulips and daffodils in the markets and florist you know warmer weather is just around the bend.
Tulips are probably the easiest flower to manage into a gorgeous arrangement. I thought I would show you what I did. First, trim each stem with very sharp scissors and cut them at an angle. This lets the stems take on more water.
Next, remove any loose foliage towards the bottom of the stems. This helps to keep the water clean and pure for the blooms.
To arrange, simply gather the bunch of stems and place it into a vase or even a mason jar filled with water.
I am always amused at how the stems seem to turn towards the sun, just like me!!
Are you as ready for spring as I am? What are you looking forward to most? I hope you will share your thoughts so we can all get ready for spring together!
