Tulips and Snow

"Write it on your heart that every day 
is the best day of the year."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A vase of orange tulips brighten 
the house while we wait for the first
snow of the season.

I'm off to the market for soup makings!


  1. LOVE tulips and that shade of orange is full of life! The quote is one of my favorites. ;) Oh, I wish I were near by to check out that soup later today! blessings ~ Tanna

  2. Any orange flower is beautiful to me. Get that soup pot on. The time has arrived....

  3. i like those tulips, but LOVE that vase, the flowers on it are so pretty.

  4. Tulips..any time of the year are a the the our hand:)

  5. What glorious color. That shade of orange speaks to my senses. Get that soup going and some bread in the oven. That's a perfect way to sit out a winter storm. Have a great day, Bonnie. Blessings...Mary

  6. Mmmmmm, sounds perfect for a winters day.

    We're 55 right now but tonight baby...snow, ice and all the trimmins. They say we won't get above the teens tomorrow.

    The Ozarks...ya gotta love it!!!

    I think I need so beautiful orange tulips!!!

    The Chili is already made!

    God bless and stay warm and cozy my friend!!! :o)

  7. Everything about this picture is perfect! I LOVE the orange tulips. And the vase is divine. Funny, I would not have bought a vase like this, but man, it is wonderful! I don't have the vision to decorate like you do!!! I need to post some flowers like you and others for viewing in the bleak mid-winter. Tell us about your soup!

  8. What gorgeous tulips to brighten a winter day! Hmm and soup .. perfect! Enjoy the snow!

  9. Beautiful tulips... Reminds me of SPRING --which is right around the corner.

    We've had tons of rain today and last night... Tomorrow it will turn cold here --and we may get some flurries.. But --that will be all for us.. Darn!!!!


  10. The tulips are very pretty, stay warm and enjoy the soup:@)

  11. The orange tulips are eye candy. I would love a little snow. I am beginning to suspect we will not be seeing snow this winter. Stay warm and safe. Hugs!

  12. The tulips are gorgeous!! Definitely a beautiful way to brighten these colorless days of winter.

    We haven't had any snow yet this winter, and it appears that we won't be getting any within the next week, as the forecast calls for dry conditions. I am quite thankful for the lack of snow...though I realize "no snow" is not a good thing for the water table.

    My husband bought me a little space heater, and I carry it with me from room to room. It keeps me nice and toasty, so I've done very little complaining this winter.


  13. Happy Birthday Bonnie! Yep, the snow started exactly at 9:00 a.m.! I am taking a half day because my husband has a doctor appointment this afternoon, hope most of the snow starts after 5!

  14. What a bright color in the dead of winter... it would cheer me up completely. Good luck on your soup!

  15. Tulips are on sale at my grocery store too and I can't wait to get some. It's snowing quite nicely here now so I'll probably wait, though.

  16. Tulips, snow and soup .... sounds perfect, Bonnie.


  17. I have red carnations on my table. I stopped last night for milk and a yellow cake mix. I may make that cinnamon roll cake. THREE day weekend! wheeeee!
    xo, Cheryl

  18. Another perfect post. Emerson and flowers and promises of soup. I'm drinking a big cup of tea, but even with that hot beverage in my stomach, I'm hungry! I think I need to break out the banana bread. Thanks for sharing, sweet friend!

  19. I'm just jumping back in to cheer you up. That amount of snow must be nasty. Stay warm and keep the fireplace going. Have a great evening. Blessings...Mary

  20. Such bright and festive tulips.
    Love them!
    We had snow here overnight but not much.
    We have been enjoying different soups this week.



I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
