A few bulbs and perennials have been turning up in pots at the grocery store lately. The label says these Campanula blooms will last three weeks. I hope my un-green thumb will keep them alive that long! I know that a lot of you have blooms coming up in your own garden already. Our dry climate doesn't allow as much for that, but I'm sure my local gardening friends, the ones with the green thumbs, are probably reaping the rewards about now. Thank goodness the rest of us can buy our way in!
A fresh coat of white paint on an an old potting shelf, and we're ready to show off the wares! The blooms came with the little aged white clay urn, so of course I bought two. When the plants find a home in the garden I'll be able to use these little darlings over and over again. They even have the suggestion of a heart motif designed along the rim.
Great-grandmother's English tea plates also carry the suggestion of springtime (Golden Heritage by Royal Grafton). A stack of fresh white linens, and you can almost smell the spring air!
Hope you're having a sweet week!
