Bringing it indoors

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I love cut flowers in my house. When I see the tulips start blooming I get super anxious to start filling my vases indoors. My favorite arrangements are simple tall budding branches.  Unfortunately, my yard doesn't really start blooming until well into April. This beautiful weather had me out scouring my property for something to bring indoors. I really only had 2 choices--Mountain Laurel and Cherry Laurel.       

I snipped a few branches of the Cherry Laurel and plucked them in a vase.

They look great but I wanted blooms!!  A trip to Wal-Mart {don't judge, that's what I got folks} and I grabbed a $5 bundle of lilies {I think these are lilies?} There wasn't a name on the sticker! {update-thanks to a few lovely readers, I found out the big girl name is Alstroemeria. Thanks ladies--my readers are so smart!!}  

Their stems are nice and long. I added a few into my branches.

 

A pretty, inexpensive, super easy arrangement that brings a little spring inside!

I also grabbed a small bunch of tulips and had enough lilies leftover to add them in and then make a smaller arrangement. I love them on my window sill!
