Garden Fever

Posted on

If you follow me on Pinterest, my apologies for the bajillion garden photos I just repinned. I’m a little bit obsessed at the moment.

It’s been unseasonably warm the last few days, which made it a little hard to get outside to do much, though I’ll try not to complain after the super frigid winter we had.

I’ve got a nice batch of winter sowing containers going with seedlings for both my flower and veggie gardens, but the most exciting thing in my garden right now are the bulbs! I’ve mentioned before how much I love bulbs. If you’ve got a black thumb, try some spring bulbs. You won’t be disappointed. They are so easy, it almost feels like cheating.

Tulips are one of my all-time favorite flowers. I’ve never been a rose girl myself, I’ll take a bouquet of spring tulips and daffodils anyday!

Tulips just scream Spring, which is why I always make sure to buy some cut tulips when it’s still snowy and dreary out. A little reminder of what’s coming in a month or two! You can find them almost anywhere this time of year- the grocery store, flower shop, or garden center.

Here’s a cute little way to show off your tulips with a wee centerpiece. They’re small, easy to DIY, and you can adapt them to fit anything color/theme.

I think these would make really cute wedding centerpieces- think white tulips with silver sequins!Read more…
