Don't Eat This Easter Egg!

 Can you believe the couple from this week's wedding told me to give away all their reception flowers?   So friends and neighbors will have beautiful flowers on their Easter dinner tables. What can I do with all the fragrant light pink Hyacinths?......hmmm.....Here's what I came up with.  Smells delicious -without the fat or calories.
                                                       Have a Happy, Hope-full Easter.

Design Show Favorites

To flower lovers this is breathtaking!  At first glance I thought it was a Begonia. With a  closer look I knew it was a Hydrangea. It's a' Japanese' Hydrangea. Yes, they're really grown in Japan and shipped to the US.  They're only available for about two weeks a year and are very, very expensive; but if I were a bride again I would have to have at least one of them in my bouquet.

                                         .........and some of these Helleborus
                                                 and a few of these gorgeous Dutch Peonies
                                                       and definitely these Coral Double Tulips
                                                                  some of these  Lisianthus
                                                      and lots of purple Fringed Tulips
                                          a few more of these Coral Double Tulips- they're just so amazing,
         Oh my! It might just end up as big as this bride's bouquet ~  I wouldn't be able to carry it!  Good thing I'm already married :). 
                                Wedding season is about to begin.  Happy Easter everyone!
