Celebrating the arrival of spring in anticipation of gardening season. Ball jar bouquets of hyacinths, tulips and iris provide spring blooms to pair with vintage transferware for some tabletop gardening in the Potting Shed.
Happy Monday! It’s happy week for us as there is sunshine without a drop of rain in sight in the forecast, in what seems like forever! Another reason to be happy –> Spring officially arrives on Wednesday! Spring has already “sprung” here in North Carolina, with the daffodils and forsythia in bloom, as well as the fruit trees~ cherry, pear and plum.
I’m happy to be joining my Monday Morning Bloom friends for a little flower therapy in anticipation of spring today. You’ll find my blogging friends’ links to their blooming creations at the bottom of this post.
Our theme for this edition of Monday Morning Blooms was ‘Spring Bulbs’!
Warning: photo heavy post ahead. . .🌸💐🌷
I planted some hyacinths, tulips and iris in the Potting Shed for a little spring tabletop gardening!
If spring had a smell it would be hyacinths!
I cut some hyacinths to enjoy their wonderful fragrance and planted some Johnson Brother Garden Bouquets for some blooming tabletop fun!
In anticipation of gardening season, watering can napkin rings are sprinkled on the table, joining blooming gardening tools, a hand fork and spade, functional, but too pretty to use!
More hyacinths join tulips from the grocery store to fill mason jars.
Hyacinths are blooming in a favorite urn, topped with moss.
The hyacinths bulbs will be planted in the garden after they’ve finished blooming to enjoy next spring.
A galvanized ‘Fresh Flower Market’ sign is hanging above the Potting Shed window. . .
Check back in May when the roses and peonies are in bloom!
A basket of flowers from Clarice Cliff Charlotte provide some purple blooms. . .
Tulips and the last of the forsythia, add a pop of sunny yellow color, in contrast to the bluish/purple of the hyacinths.
Johnson Brothers ‘Sheraton’ is another blooming favorite in my garden of dishes.
Vintage flatware is blooming and planted in garden gloves, in celebration of the spring gardening season.
Vintage-inspired seed packet postcards are displayed on flower frogs. . .
