An Amaryllis bulb ready to burst into three, giant white blooms!
I just wanted to share a few little bits of spring that are brightening up my house.
Today was gorgeous, as I mentioned previously. I have enjoyed having the window open, while the sun streams in. I've been craving a break from all this snow and cold, and today was exactly what I needed. It's so refreshing to feel a slight breeze in the house, and the warmth of the sun.
However, the weather won't be staying like this for much longer! Spring is still a while away. That doesn't mean it can't feel a little more like spring inside until then!
One of the easiest ways to brighten up your home is with some gorgeous flowers. Cut flowers can get expensive to replace each week, so why not add some potted bulbs around your home?
There are a few particular favourites this time of year for me, like white Hiacynths, which look gorgeous (and smell even more amazing!) in old ironstone serving dishes. And, another favourite would be Paperwhites. I've had pails of them (literally), in my bay window for a few weeks already. They last a decent amount of time, but once they start looking a little droopy, I swap them out for new ones.
Currently, my Amaryllis bulbs are in full bloom. They are tall and elegant, and have huge, bell shaped blooms. I plant mine in large, pedestal glass vases so they look extra tall. They make a dramatic centerpiece.
And, a new addition, is a small little fern, which looks lovely in a small tabletop greenhouse.
These arrangements and bits of green bring so much joy! They make the house feel alive, and add hints of fragrance to each room. They're the perfect pick-me-up, and a great way to celebrate the coming of the new season.
I love this little terrarium and the fern was $2!
A simple, white enamel pitcher full of white Azaleas and white Waxflower. It's a $10 bouquet and it lasts and lasts! The Azalea blooms remind me of cherry blossoms and the tiny waxflowers always remind me of wild flowers!
Aren't they gorgeous?
