Nejmen- är det den dagen idag????!! Det har jag missat! Kul få det uppmärksammat från London-håll!;-)
Tulpaner är verkligen en härlig vårvintertröst! Förnyar här med nya buketter varje vecka. Finns så otroligt många fina varianter!
Din bild av buketten är så ljuvlig!

The tulip is a wonderful flower, the Netherlands are famous by cultivating it. From April you can visit the Keukenhof in our country.

That’s the place to see spring blossom. More than seven million flowers form a glorious decor. It's really great but it's a long time ago I have been there!

Wish you a happy weekend Ingrid! Warm regards, Ingrid

Fina tulpaner. Köpte också idag, känns lite vårlikt. Åh hyacintinlägget är så vackert, mönstret och nyanserna i porslinet till hyacintblommorna. kram Sophia

Happy Tulip Day, Ingrid! Beautiful photo! The history of tulips is fascinating and they are so popular still. We have a huge tulip festival each year just north of us but one day I hope to go to Keukenhof in The Netherlands. Have a lovely weekend! xo – g

It is so nice to see these beginning to appear! Even though it's a long way off yet for us, it's a reminder of what is to come. Beautifully done.

Det är min favorit också. Tycker det är så kul att den fortsätter att växa i vasen och liksom växer ur arrangemang med andra blommor.

ÄLSKAR ditt hyacint foto nedan. Såååå vackert.
