Spring Ahead Arrangement

Crazy daylight savings time...it was cool coming home before dark, but now I don't want to go to sleep yet!  Had a great work day today and picked up some hyacinths for spring (just a few more days until this Saturday, the 20th, the 1st day!, which will also be Macaron Day NYC as I mentioned here). 

These blooms are quite pale and not fully open yet, so I put them by this pink pillow to make them pop a bit.  The stalks were even paler, like white asparagus, a little too blanched, so I wrapped the vase with fresh green leaves from the inside.  I'm looking forward to longer days and the promise of spring breezes soon...

Ooooo I love that idea of using the leaves like that!

BTW, just posted about Trophy Cupcakes. Thanks to you our wedding will be that much sweeter!!!

hi Creative Coquette, yay, cupcake decision, that's great! glad to help :-)

and thanks, i liked the leaves wrapped in the vase too, but it might've made the flowers unhappy. there's a sticky sap in the ends of the stems and leaves that might have concentrated in the water too much and i think hyacinths are happier in the ground anyways. live and learn!
