A Small Reminder of Spring

Hello again!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!  Karl woke me up Valentine's Day morning to tell me that he hadn't remembered, so not to expect anything.  He was only teasing for he had a bouquet of tulips and chocolates waiting for me!  I put them in a flower pot for a centerpiece on my coffee table.  Aren't they pretty?  They remind me so of spring.  












Soon enough I will be outside, tending to my spring garden!  I can't wait!


Thank-you for your visit!  Enjoy your week!

    I love that he gave you tulips! My husband says I'm the only girl who doesn't want to be given roses on Valentines Day. I'd rather have a handful of pink tulips any day! :)
