Tulips are always a good idea…especially when there is a zillion inches of snow outside. These little lovelies are all from the grocery store—even the ivy. I was just thinking of forcing a few bulbs when I spotted these pink and white buds at the local Ingles. What a beautiful shade of pink to get us all thinking about the Spring garden. Now, head out to your local Publix, Ingles or Trader Joe’s and see what you can find. If we have them in Cashiers you can find them anywhere. Oh, and this beautiful folk art mirror was a birthday gift from Mr. P. It originally hung in The Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, he ask the owner to buy it every year for my birthday—she finally gave in! It has followed me to 4 homes now.
