Oh, no. I had just determined in my mind to be content with winter . . . stark, cold, white . . . and then you go and throw up those gorgeous warm tulips. ::sigh:: Spring!

So absolutely wonderful. Today it rained in Houston all day. This is just a reminder that the rain will bring forth beautiful blooms in the next couple months. There is hope. Beautiful hope in the pink of a tulip.

Tulips are my favorite flowers by far, I love love the way they drop over the edge of the vase. Have lots of yellow sisters in my vase. Today some beautiful bluebells joined in the flower club!
Lots of love my dearest sweet friend. Enjoy every day of the new week! xxxxx

Foxglove said...

Pretty pink tulips look so divine, I don't think there is anything more beautiful than flowers in bloom filling the house and the gardens, the sweet aroma and glorious colours.

Have a beautiful new week as the days are getting closer to Spring, for you and beautiful autumn here!! xxx

krys kirkpatrick said...

Good Morning Koralee, your blog is like a breath of spring...the colors and the upbeat mood. I love visiting here...especially on a monday morning. Have a joyful week.

tammy n said...

My grocery did have tulips but not ones as pretty as those...they kind of looked shivery and pathetic...but it is just in the teens here temperature wise.

I enjoy your blog!♥

Christine Hoffman said...

and filled with spring thoughts.

my new blog button has bluebirds on it")

Libbie said...

I was just thinking of doing a spring post because I am CRAVING it!!!

You are so good at replying Koralee but I seriously mean this...you can always skip me, I visit to often :) I will keep stalking you though for my little dose of sushine each day! I need it...you are SPRING!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh Koralee! GOOD MORNING DEAREST! I am having a blast. Ruben is painting and it is actually good that the men are not here today because Ruben will actually be able to finish the painting in his office! THE QUICKER he gets into his new space, the faster I can get my things into the office we share now. It will be my own white and whispy harp/writing studio with a white settee, a white marble fireplace with a touch of turquoise! WOOOO HOOOO! Have a splendid day with the little ones.....BISOUS, Anita

Barbara said...

I don't think there's anything I like better than a big bowlful of tulips. The way they droop over the side. And I like my arrangements monochromatic too.....

Marilyn said...

Yes!!!! Tulips and Daffodils are spring food for the heart. Beautiful pictures here and I look forward to more spring food for the eyes. I am putting my rain boots on and going exploring - oh I did find new growth peeking from the ground this weekend. Tulips are coming, yes they are! I love when you visit me.

Gloria said...

Very pretty, and inspiring!!! Your brown paper bag even had the slight look of pink! Beautiful fabric too!

A very frothy cafe latte was in my blue cup, by the way...:) If you lived closer, I for sure would have made you your very own cup, my sweet friend!

Have a wonderful day!!

XOXO Gloria

**CREATIVE CARMELINA** said...

Koralee...dear! Considering the size of your blog..and the amount of comments you get on a regular basis...I'd say you do quite well. I know how hard it can actually be to keep up with correspondence...

Just keep doing what you do....because one things for sure....

I LOVE IT!

and tulips...gorgeous...the soft colours of spring...but believe it or not...as nice as it is....I am still nestled in the heart of winter and I'm loving it! It's knitting and crocheting with beautiful yarns in the evenings....and hot cocoa for me!

thanks for a glimpse of what's to come!

Bliss...Koralee...Sheer Bliss!

ciao bella

The Garden Bell said...

Heaven, I'm in Heaven.

Just the pink tulips I needed to bright my Monday. Throw in a cup of cocoa with those pink marshmellows and I'm good to go.

Off to see what else you were up to all weekend, my dear.

Lynn said...

Lovely tulips! They really say "spring".

Susan said...

Hope your school day was FAB. We had the day off today for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but I must attend a school committee meeting tonight. In addition to being the first grade teacher I am also the assistant principal! There's talk of *SNOW* for tomorrow! Why can't I ever get my fill of **snow days?**
Your pics make my heart happy just looking at them! I love pink tulips and can't wait to have a vase full of them sitting on my kitchen counter! Thanks for the spring preview, sweet Koralee!
Blessings!
