Home: A Splash of Color

Tulip Splash Of Color (02) by MeetaK

One thing I was looking forward to, when I was in Dubai, was coming back to fresh, lush spring colors. I was really expecting Spring to be in full swing here, waiting for my return from the barren browns and concrete grays of Dubai.

Unfortunately Soeren and I were greeted with cold winds and icy sleet. The weather has been in this tragic state the whole week. Gray and wet! I was so hoping to wear my new outfits I got from Dubai - I gave the phrase power shopping an whole new meaning. LOL!

The great thing is that my new office is a stone's throw away from the Farmer's Market. Heaven for me, because during my lunch breaks I can stroll down there and get my color kick. Mother nature might be stinging with Spring but my fave Farmers were not. Bright colors as far as the eyes could see.

So, I brightened up the office and my home with huge bunches of colorful tulips. Here in the picture I arranged 5 bunches of tulips in all my favorite colors. Each bouquet had five tulips making a huge colorful bunch of twenty five flowers. My pristine glass vase was perfect for it.

I splashed out on color for my Centerpiece of the Month, hoping that I'll be seeing these colors outdoors soon too. The lovely Sandi hosts this event every month and I wanted to send her a huge splash of color. If you too are feeling gray right now I hope this cheered you up a touch.

  1. What gorgeous flowers!! I have some flowers starting to show, but the tulips are still hiding. I think it's just been too cold. Hopefully in the next few weeks, because I could use some color like this in my world!

  2. Beautiful centrepiece. I love tulips. They're starting to poke through the ground here. I can't wait until they're in full bloom. Probably another month or so before that happens.

  18. There are times when I am amazed at how (in my head) a simple post like this can touch so many. I am so glad you all enjoyed these flowers. Hugs to you!

  19. Mahek, these tulips lasted quite a long time! I normally cut the ends off with a sharp knife when I get home and before I put them in the vase. Then make sure you change the water often too. That should keep hem fresh for a few days1
