Tulips and China

Bloomin' #@2*#!!!
I came into the dining room on Sunday to find my tulips blooming like crazy!
They are the loveliest shade of soft pink.
The only pink ones among pots of red ones at the store.
Would have been nice if they'd bloomed out like this for Valentine's Day.
I'm really enjoying them though.
I wish they'd last till Easter...but alas they won't.
Closeups of some of my rose china.
A lovely stack
I'm really enjoying having the rose china out...it has been years since I displayed it.
Aren't those tulips pretty?
I think they were the perfect Valentine's Day present to myself.

Perhaps I'll have to just get more for Easter.

Ahhh...your photos are beautiful. Love the tulips, favorite next to daisies and the china is just gorgeous. I want to pick it up and examine it all much closer. So, so pretty. I love buying flowers for the house even though I have to practically hang them from the ceiling because of Audrey. Deb

I love tulips, but they're very hard to find around here, I would say impossible! Your china pile is lovely with the tulips and your photography is great, Nita! Hugs,

They are the perfect gift to yourself. I just love tulips. Are you going to put them in your yard later? It's worth a try.

I love pink tulips, probably one of my favorites next to pink roses. My husband tried to get me pink tulips for V-day but they only had yellow ones that looked half way healthy. That's ok...the yellow ones were pretty. "Were" meaning they are already wilted and ready to throw out. Hopefully it won't be long until we start seeing tulips popping up outside. My daffodils are popping up now. Should start seeing blooms sometime next month....hopefully. Your pink tulips look just beautiful on your china hutch!~Hugs, Patti

So pretty, Nita. I was excited about the quality of the tulips that I found today. They're artificial though and let's face it...nothing compares to the real thing. Your tulips and vignette are pretty in pink.

Your collection of rose china has me wanting to look for some more! I have some, but not this kind of assemblage. The tulips are so soft and lovely.

Those tulips are the perfect shade of pink, so delicate! And they just decide to have their own special day between Valentine and Easter, the famous "tulip blooming day"!

Nita , It's funny because I just love everything you love!!Pink tulips - heaven!
Thank you for your comment today ... You get it!!!
( sadly) I also went on anti depressents and they have made all the difference in the world! And I agree - I am NOT going back to that place! NO WAY!
Cheers to us for doing what we needed to do!!!
Hugs!
Have a pretty day!
