2 Lips... get it... kiss-kiss!!!


Tulips are a Natural for Valentine's Day...
2 Lips... get it... kiss-kiss!!!

And Tulips on the Bulb are unusual and a bonus gift...

Arranged in a hand bouquet style... bound with a bit of craft wire...
they stand on their own... and can be displayed on a tray or in a shallow
 pan of water... for longer life...

Once the tulips have bloomed... you can plant the bulbs... and they'll
come up the following year... (and there after)...

It's a fun way to celebrate Valentine's Day...

Also check out the "100's" of different tulip varieties that Sun Valley
grows... (they have the Tulips on the bulb too)... 



P.S. Tulips on the Bulb... Another way to say "I love you" with Flowers!

Template made from a grocery bag...


Here's a fun idea...

Taken from "The Sand Hill Diary"... a fun blog - (Read it here!)

After getting a "little tired" of all the Snow... she created flowers
to look at in her yard... with a bit of Food Coloring in Spray Bottles
and a Template made from a grocery bag...

It's a fun idea... and something that will certainly have the neighbors
talking... 


P.S. Snow- it's #BetterWithFlowers!

I thought it was pretty interesting... Kangaroo Style!!!


A Native to Australia... the Kangaroo Paw Plant is named after the famous
Marsupial...

Not only because of the "fuzzy" exterior of the flower bud... shown here in Bright Red...

But because the Kangaroo "Paws"... or more descriptively "Claws"...
have 5 appendages... just like a human hand... and when they are open they look very much like the open bloom of the Kangaroo Paw Plant...shown here in green!

So now you know... I thought it was pretty interesting... 




P.S. High Five... Kangaroo Style!!!
