I was fascinated with this little tulip pot transformation; starting out so perfectly perfect, it ended up so perfectly imperfect.
After spending the first few days last week working with my dried peonies, I finally had to go to town for groceries … and look who came home with me! I was smitten with this tiny pot full of tulip goodness. The leaves were perfect and the tulips themselves made me think of silk (and only $4.99 for hours and hours of entertainment.)
I shall divulge a little secret here. I bought two pots and one is sitting in the refrigerator. At the moment it’s still in the bud stage, but today I’ll be taking it out, and I’m expecting it will explode (I’ll let you know what happens).
So the $4.99 turned into $10.00 … but, oh well …
It seemed like spring was just outside my window, so I had a little party …Then of course I had to have a little flatlay play …
… and then this happened …
oh, hello !!And here’s where we’re at now …
Soon the petals will be dropping and I can just hear the little fluttering noise they make as they let go.
Happy March 1st everyone!

I loved seeing each step of the tulips transformation and reading the poetic words you speak about it…… each one is set in different creative ways and points of view and… how I love these inspired “variations around a tulip pot”… so pleasing to read and to look at… don’t need a lot of things or props to tell a pretty story… nature is always a fabulous subject to observe… and shoot… thanks for sharing Barb!

love all of these stills and how you have arranged these lovely tulips. Makes me want to go out and buy some for myself.
Gorgeous … and I love the idea of keeping a second pot in the fridge instead of going out for new … thank you!
