Your tulips, real and faux, are gorgeous. I have been buying them at the store as it will be weeks until my own bloom. Lots of shoots, but that's it. Spring comes late to the Midwest.

Lovely post, BJ! Have a happy weekend! :-)

Beautiful tulips and the glass of sweet tea looks "southernly delicious!"

Jean Tuthill said...

Oh, I love the tulips and all the flowers! I will be buying them, too. I like to have lots of flowers around at Easter, it just seems fitting.

Diva Kreszl said...

those tulips are just so beautiful...love all the pinks! I'll be out again this weekend cleaning up flowerbeds etc, getting dirt under my nails and just enjoying being outside, have a lovely weekend!

Stacey said...

Hi BJ! I love all of your pinkiness. You are right - pink makes everything look prettier...including women. :)

Deb said...

Enjoyed your post very much. Have a lovely weekend. Deb

Kathleen Grace said...

I love pink in the springtime:>) Your flowers are gorgeous but I really love the old scales with the easter bunny on them! I can't wait to plant either, Earl just started some seeds down in the basement since we still have about 6-8 weeks before we can plant outside.
Come over and see my give-away sweet BJ. Don't you miss it!

Marice said...

oh gosh those are such a feast in the eyes :) lovely!

oh about my LOI, I think my husband's Dad did it for us. Scary and dangerous indeed. Imagine how we almost did a general house cleaning after that to remove of all those ashes. tsk tsk!

thanks for the love BJ :)

Diann said...

Hi BJ!

Oh, first of all, those real tulips are BEAUTIFUL! The color is just gorgeous! All the faux flowers are so pretty. Love the rose topiary. A breath of Spring beauty is what your post is!

Have a wonderful day!

Your tulips are beautiful - both real and faux. Flowers make me happy. I can't wait to go out and play in the dirt, too.

I will get out in the dirt too, but then blogging will get pushed back..

Girl, I adore those pink tulips! I bought a tiny pot of red ones for my kitchen window, and they make all the difference in my spirits when I'm washing my dishes. Love you and hope to see you soon as this wind dies down enough to take a day trip to Lbk. Blessings!

Sarah said...

Delightful pinks, BJ. I've started working in the garden, but still haven't planted annuals. I'm still cleaning up from what the bitter winter left me. LOL
Thanks for sharing these. These photos make my heart sing.

Love the tulips! I would have loved to have attended the coffee party. I believe I could have eaten the bagels, cream cheese and bacon treats without worrying about my diet. The cake looked even better, though! Happy Pink Saturday!
