Store-Bought Spring

Spring Flowers-3

Later the garden will have irises in flower, but I have not planted tulips in many years.  When I spotted these at the grocery today, I indulged in the opportunity to brighten the house with some spring blooms.

A few cuttings of lavender help support the irises.

      I had already planned to buy the tulips but the irises caught my attention irises too at the store and just had to bring some home. Several are open fully this morning.

    Never am I more in need of bouquets for the house that at this time of the year. Irises are hard to get here and they certainly look stunning with your blue vase, Susie!

    Those colors look fantastic and you’ve put them together perfectly, a real artistic arrangement.
    I can see where your daughter gets her talents from!

      Well thank you very much! Many of the irises opened up this morning and I was surprised to find one turned out to be white. Made for a bit of whimsy.

    I love your blue iris arrangement (my favorite color), and they match the vase really well. The color combination of the tulips is very interesting, never thought that bright yellow and purple would look this great together. Bravo!

      Thank you! Glad you liked these. I bought the yellow tulips to pair with the irises for contrast, but when I started working with the flowers the tulips came together as a group. The blue color is also my favorite.
