:: tulips & lemons


Happy Friday Everyone!

Can you tell by the pictures above that I'm dying for Spring. While getting groceries the other day I ran across these lovely white tulips {my favorite},  I just had to pick some up to bring some Spring into my home. I also picked up some lovely lemons as I had seen lemons used in a floral arrangement on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try myself. I just love how it turned out, it's so bright & cheery and makes me so happy. 

I simply used a mason storage jar I had on hand as my vase, sliced my lemons and after adding the tulips I tucked the lemons in around them, using a knife to push the lemons down into the water at varying levels. I did this a few days ago, so this morning before shooting I emptied the foggy lemon water, cut the ends of my tulips about 1/4" then refilled with fresh water & started over. I think the color of the lemons has faded just a bit since I first cut them but I re-used them anyway.


I hope you are having a lovely day where you are, it's still quite chilly here, and supposed to be rainy this weekend. Not exactly the kind of weather I was hoping for since my new raised beds arrived yesterday. I can't wait to get started on them. However.... I don't do cold, so I'll be waiting for a nice sunny day.

Have a lovely weekend.

{peace, love & hugs}
