Sunshine on a stalk

My husband got me flowers for my birthday, the best kind: beautiful and inexpensive.  They lasted for almost two weeks then, while at Aldi not long ago, I scored potted flowers on sale for $1.99, Easter leftovers of tulips and hyacinths, bulbs that can go outdoors once their indoor season is over.  Today, as the several inches of snow melted away in the afternoon, I spent a bit of time with phone and camera, reveling in the bright, cheerful colors.

    That is such a great post title, Janet.

  3. Nothing like indoor blooms to keep you feeling warm when the outside temps are still below freezing. 🙂

    flowers, you must have a great husband 🙂

  7. Lovely! I do always take for granted how much flowers can brighten one’s mood. I feel happier just looking at your picture!

    Happy Belated Birthday, too! I hope you might be able to visit one day so I can share an actual slice of cake with you. 🙂

  8. Time well spent, Janet, and your description is spot-on—sunshine on a stalk—most def.

  9. Tulips just can’t help being pretty even when their petals are getting ready to fall off. Very nice.

    Beautiful Janet and hope you had a lovely Birthday! Agh I think we are going to miss Spring all together this year as I love at the ground covered still in snow. Oh well…

    • Our snow of yesterday morning melted by afternoon and in a few days, it’s supposed to be about 70 for a couple days, before getting back to more spring-like temperatures. I’m looking forward to the warmth. 🙂

    How sweet! I can’t remember the last time someone got me flowers….

    Oh lovely! Tulips are my favorite. I love how when they’re spent, they look like a whole ‘nother flower. Great shot!
