A Spring Bunch


As soon as I saw them, I knew these were coming home with me. What a dash of colour amidst all the winter white. Can you imagine the delight of my heart as I popped them into a vase and set them in front of me? 



And, then can you imagine the completely unplanned moment when having stopped at the library to pick up a book I had on hold, to find that it was Deborah Moggach's Tulip Fever?  Of all the books I have in my 'reserve it' file, they had that one waiting for me.  Too splendid for words!
Now that's what I call a little glimpse of heaven tucked in an unexpected place!

Here's wishing you your own sprightly bunches of heaven!

  1. Oh I do love that color as well. I don't think I can trust bringing tulips home today (they'd freeze). Primroses won't be safe from me if I can find any.

  3. What perfect timing! Sure do love splashes of color amidst all the wintery white. I do get tiny splashes of color as I browse my seed catalogues.

  5. I bought tulips this week as well...pretty pink ones. I find they bring so much colour and the promise of spring into my house. Your tulips are a beautiful colour and how wonderful to pick up a library book so you can enjoy them even more.

    Thanks for leaving such a lovely comment on my post about Victoria magazine. I'm definitely not alone in my enjoyment of the beautiful magazine. :o)

  9. I loved reading your post. I had the exact same experience at the store last night. I was ready to check out and glanced over and saw a bunch of Sunflowers! Fresh, and egg yellow - on this icy day, they are a reminder of the warm weather that will come!

  11. Ahhh, flowers to look at and a new book to read; I'd call that heaven too! Funny how similar the color of your bouquet and the book's picture is...like it was planned. (And we know it was!)

  15. Tulips have to be one of the best hopeful signs of warm sunshine and flowers to come. Lovely, Brenda, and thank you for dropping by for a quick visit with me and my buddy.

  17. Brenda, I agree with you, it is a touch of heaven for me on this Wednesday morning. The tulips are exceptionally beautiful, and certainly do make me look forward to the Spring. Hope you enjoy your book and a good cup of coffee with it.

    It was good to hear from you again.

  18. Hi Brenda, what beautiful, beautiful tulips! There are few things more spectacular. Tulips always amaze me because they are as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. Looking into the center of a tulip is a always a surprise of color and design. Each one is so unique and different. Last year some friends sent me a bouquet of tulips, all different colors and I still dream about them! They are the essence of spring. :) I hope you have a lovely afternoon. With Love, Delisa :)
