My Valentine Tulips...

These are my Valentine's Day Tulips
that I got on Feb. 14th....


 You might remember that I added faux pink tulips to the vase until the REAL THING was ready to bloom.

This morning...Thurs. 18th, I thought I'd add a little more water and carefully
removed the pretty, silk, faux pink tulips...
and when I tried to remove the rest of them....
they had suddenly become REAL....
overnight ! ! !
and I was too sleepy this morning to know they had bloomed.

Why...they just take my breath away.
...never BEEN so in love

♫ ...come tiptoe thru the tulips with me..♪♪

"When I asked for all things so that I might enjoy life, I was given life, so that I might enjoy all things".

They were so pretty to look at while we ate breakfast...
sweet little tidbits of Cherry and Apple Strudel Bites...
straight from the super market bakery.

 ...sorry for so many pictures of the tulips...
sometimes I don't know when to stop...

That cherry one....on your left....
looks like it's sticking it's red tongue out, right at me ! I just ate it.

  16. What pretty tulips. I can see why you took many pictures-they are beautiful!

  17. Your home BJ is such a happy and cheerful treat for the eyes. Love your Tulips, last night I picked up a couple of Purple Tulip bunches from Trader Joe's as I am waiting for my forced Purple bulbs to greet me with bloom. I like you adore Tulips and find myself giddy in their beauty.
    Happy Friday sassy friend!

  18. Oh gorgeous. Call me dumb (I guess we're really not sisters) but I didn't realize you could force tulips this way. Is it too late to try? I'd love some beautiful tulips.
    Can you do any spring bulb? Sorry for all the questions. But I figure if someone has a green house they are pretty smart!
    Have a good weekend. Enjoy your beautiful tulips!

    1. SMART....!!??!! afraid we are still learning....

  24. Tulips are like the perfect flower to me. So lovely!

  25. BJ,
    Can one ever really have too many photos of pink tulips?
    I think not!
    Yours are gorgeous!

  26. Love, love your "pink pops!"
    Aren't tulips just the best cheer . . .
    I like them better inside the house than seeing them outside . . .
    (Maybe because I have to wait forever to see them outside!)
    Happy I can pick up a fresh bunch each week at the market . . .

  27. No such thing as too many tulip photos!

  28. BJ, I knew you would have a way to make Valentine's delicious and pretty, too. Your tulips are beautiful.

    Happy Pink Saturday. This post is being featured on my Pink Saturday this week as "the one that caught my eye".♥

  29. I love, love, love, that pink. Love it!
