Plucked to Present

Plucked to Present_1

Finally, after gloomy months without sun and warmth which felt like an eternity, the sun is out again, filling my heart, my soul, and my flower bed with joy and a hunger for life. The young buds on the small, sprouting plants light up my otherwise barren and dull-looking roofgarden with bright colors. I am mesmerized by the lure of the fresh, flowery scent of tulips, hyacinths, and hydrangeas coming to life. Therefore, seeing as they were such a source of joy for me, I didn’t hesitate to gather some of these for my living room; and this morning, armed with scissors and a vase, I went into action and cut a few of my snow-white tulips.

The flowers on their own are already an eye-catcher, but today’s creative woman naturally likes to up the ante. So here are my step-by-step instructions for a perfect feeling of spring for your living room (or any other room in your home):

Cut the plants, get a trendy vase, and please don’t forget: Dye for the water – if you cannot get hold of any, I can also recommend blue ink – and then into the vase with them, adding a generous dash of the dye to the water.

Now, not only do you have a piece of nature in your home, but also a colored eye-catcher, which will blend in nicely with the style of the rest of your living space.

Last, but not least, the final step: Place the vase in an easily visible position so you are always able to steal a glance at this floral treat.
