Spring has sprung!

I think Spring has sprung in southeast Michigan. I guess time will tell, but for now we
are enjoying the beautiful weather. In the upper 80's today and tomorrow. I just pray
that we don't get a cold snap that will kill off all the sprouting trees. My lilac trees
are covered with huge buds this year!

I had to make a run to town today and I picked up some pretty pink and white tulips.
They just screamed SPRING to me. :)

As usual I got carried away taking photos. {*Smiles*} I purchased this wine country soda
at Home Goods awhile back and sure wish I had some more. I love it!
{non alcoholic for me}
I also love the bottles so I kept them to put flowers in and here they are. :)

One of my pretty white creamers. I think I found this one at the Goodwill for 55 cents.

It is always nice to add a little french touch as well.

I did get another nice gift for my birthday this past weekend that I will share with you soon!
Hoping you are having a wonderful and springy day today!!

Linking up with White Wednesday this week again. Many thanks to Kathleen for continuing
to host it!!

Oh Sandi, I love pink tulips also...but I do not have any. My trees are budded and the weeping cherry bloomed already. All the flowering trees in town are beautiful. Tomorrow I'll take my camera and get some shots. This early super warmth is a bit scary. But hey, we have to enjoy it :):) smiles, Susie(She Junks)

I am loving your tulip photos--my tulips are yet to bloom but they are yellow and red--not my favorite color. I need to find some pink tulip bulbs and get them planted!

Irene said...

Spring has indeed arrived, it seems, and I agree, my roses are looking a little like they are ready to come out as well. Love your tulips.

Just gorgeous! Doesn't get more springy than tulips! Funny, I opened a mini bottle of sparkling apple tonight and all I could think about was how cute it would look with a flower in it, before I even had a sip!! Love your bottles:-)
