the spring ambush - MY FRENCH COUNTRY HOME

tulips and raununculas, spring is on its way!

If you read this blog now and again, you will know about my addiction to flowers.  At this time of year, when the garden is putting on a beautiful show of snowdrops but little else, I have to check into my local florists now and again, just to get my fix!

Today she ambushed me!   I had planned a quick stop to pick up a bunch of tulips for my desk, but that was not to be.

The florists store was filled with the wonderful perfume of broom, and in a zinc bucket in the middle of the store were the most divine nude raununculas

These led me to some nude roses, and then of course I had to get that broom, by which time I was so intoxicated by all the beauty that I also gave in to a bunch of pink parrot tulips.

When I got home, my husband took one glance at the armful of spring that I carried in from the car, and simply said “incorrigible”.

I shrugged my shoulders,   I think he gets off lightly ….  after all, it could be worse ….
