"Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest."

Pink and purple hues.....

Bringing flowers into the home will kick start spring...

Pink tulips are delicate and pretty...

"The tulip and the butterfly,
Appear in gayer coats than I."

- Issac Watts

Blue bell-flowers cheer the dreariest of days...

"A fair bell-flower

Sprang tip from the ground;
And its early fragrance

It shed all around;
A bee came thither

And sipp'd from its bell;
That they for each other

Were made, we see well. 

- Emily Dickinson

It is definitely not spring in Ohio. It is in the twenties right now. Yuk.
It is supposed to get into the sixties tomorrow so maybe a little move toward Spring.
Love the tulips.
Have a good day, I know you are busy as usual.
Love Mom

Wat zijn de bloemen toch mooi, vanuit het keukenraam kan ik ook genieten van crocussen, narcissen en verschillende kleuren helleborus.
Liefs en huygies, Bep
