Tiptoe through the Tulips....

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers.  They remind me of when I was a little girl where my Mother and I would plant all different color variations in our garden.  I used to be fascinated with the inside...especially the little stems that grow in the middle. 


Unfortunately, tulips don't grow in the South Florida climate but I'm still able to enjoy them when they start becoming available in the flowers shops in January.  I had lot's of fun trying out different settings on my new camera and thought, for Pink Saturday, that I'd share the tulips I just put in my living room.










Happy Pink Saturday....

They look so beautiful in your home! I chose to carry tulips for my wedding and still love them to this day but like you, I miss seeing them in the garden since living in Florida. I miss daffodils too!

Tulips don't last very long where we are here in Australia either but I still love getting them whenever I can. I think I will try and find that pretty shade of pink next time.

Best Valentine's wishes,
Natasha.

Debbie-Those are beautiful. I love tulips too...and it is always the first thing I think of for Spring flowers. You're doing good with your camera settings!

Question for you- What color are the walls in your living room? It looks a lot like my dining room color. Hugs-Diana

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share today. I love the color of these tulips. The shade just screams LOVE. I really love the bottles or vases that you have them in. I have never seen one quite like that. I love that it has a base that all three sit in and even a little border to help keep them upright and not get them knocked over. Where on earth did you find that? With my 8 grands I really would love one of these.

Your home is so pretty. I love the color of your walls. It sure did blend with the flowers. A gorgeous share for this Pink Saturday.

I am Country Wings in Phoenix, your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop over and let me share my pink post with you as well. I would be tickled pink if you signed up to follow my blog as well. I love meeting new friends and sharing our day to day lives and crafts and ideas along the way.

Hope you have a beautiful Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day sweet friend.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Very seductive, tulips! I'm one of those Floridians who brings home the tulips from the grocery store once a week...keeps me cheerful when things get grey outside.
