The Christmas wreath is a thing of the past season. The wooden snowman that I hung on it for the winter has long since been packed away. Spring has officially sprung!!
While driving last spring I spotted this idea on the doorstep of a gorgeous old home in our city. They had the exact cast iron urns that I do. I promptly made a quick trip to the Dollarama. I am sure you are shocked. 😉 Frequent readers will know that I LOVE that store. I bought 6 stems of pussy willows, and 3 bundles of white tulips. I cut the tulips into individual stocks, and poked them into the soil in a circle. Then I poked 3 pussy willow stems into the center of each urn. That’s it. I was finished. You can not get much easier than that!
It is the simplicity of this decoration that is so pleasing to my eye.
Clad in furry goods,
And a robin singing
In the maple woods.
There’s a springing crocus,
And a budding larch,
Who’d ever think the Springtime
Came along in March.
