what do you mean “no money, no problem”???????


you have at least one pretty vase, pitcher, cup or drinking glass, no?

sometimes “vases” from the kitchen make amazing vessels to present greens or flowers!!!!!!!!!!


and then take a little stroll through your yard, neighborhood or park…… i’m sure you can find some leaves, branches or a couple of blooms….. and voilà, you have a little floral accent in your house which will brighten your and everybody else’s spirit……

look what i found at the los angeles downtown flower market yesterday……..

super fragrant sweet peas from california


those local sweet peas were a feast for the senses……..

breathtaking fragrance, strong shades of watercolor lavenders and vigorous strength……. nothing dainty about those sweet peas…….

i bought the whole lot in these shades off the vendor……. and that’s what i sent out for orders that day……… and people were pretty much overjoyed to see and receive such abundant, seasonal preciousness……

PINK TULIPS on a moody day in LOS ANGELES

Filed under: homes, spring flowers — Tags: , , , , — magdalenasflowers @ 2:40 pm

on a moody day like this, only sweet and playful flowers can cheer me up…….

like these LOCAL TULIPS FROM CALIFORNIA……..

in seasons past, i did not care for tulips all that much……. the imported dutch tulips tend to be weak, sometimes moldy…….
these local beauties though are STRONG and PLAYFUL at the same time……. perfect to play with the other PRETTY THINGS on my mantle……
