As spring is approaching it takes me back to the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market where a florist dreams can come true. I remember that day because we walked so far and we were tired and almost gave up because we thought we had wrong directions until we saw the colours out of the corner of our eyes. I lit up and picked up the pace.
The Amsterdam Flower Market is the only floating flower market in the world, and one of the most fragrant places of interest of Amsterdam - in all seasons. This unique market exists since 1862. The flower stalls stand on the houseboats and evoke the old days when the market was daily supplied by boat. #flowermarketamsterdam#floatingflowermarket#bloemenmarkt#tulips#springflowers 🌸
The rain might feel dreary at times in the garden, but I just love how it heightens the colors of flowers and plants in these containers. The creamy white tulips contrast so nicely with the gloriously purple foliage of the Dolce Wildberry Coral Bells Heuchera by @provenwinners. 🤗💜💚

That’s right, add a penny to the bottom of your flower vase. Ideally, the penny should be from 1981 or earlier, because pre-1982 pennies are made of 95% copper and it’s the copper that’s the magic ingredient. If you can’t find an old penny, put a few newer ones in the bottom of your vase.
This is the second (and final) flower tip that I gleaned from the Costco floral department a couple of weeks ago.
Bonus tip: the #jeanjacket that’s serving as the backdrop for the lovely yellow tulips is currently marked down. 😉
An offering of spring tulips to brighten your day. Thankyou @jelly_side_up for spoiling me and brightening things up for us.
I plant all flowers received if I can in the garden and they always bring a smile when they renew each year. Hope springs eternal
@jgosselin23 gave me the theme of new beginnings 🌷Tulips to me mean that spring is right around the corner, and in many ways now is a time of new beginnings for a lot of us. Hope this brings colour into your day, and to whatever new chapter this season brings forth!
One day when I am a grown up I will keep detailed notes of what I buy. Flipping love this tulip, no idea what it is! In other news the chilli's transplanted into my random 'compost' mix seem to be actually doing ok, I would pat myself on the back for being thrifty if I wasn't busy eyeing up a ridiculous amount of plants on Beth Chatto's website. Maybe I'll write down the names of what I buy somewhere....
🌷There’s only one word for Amsterdam in Spring, and that word is ‘tulips‘.
⛪While Amsterdam is always worth a visit, this is especially so in and around this time of the year when the iconic flowers are in full bloom. Head to Amsterdam in the springtime to enjoy the beauty of canals surrounded by greenery.🚲
🔸Have you ever been to Netherlands? And is it in your wishlist?
(📌Definitely on my wishlist)
↝ ❁ Tusen tack alla ni fina som försökte peppa och hjälpa mig igår när det stormade runt mitt Instagramkonto! Nu har jag såväl tvåstegsauktorisering som säker inloggning. Dessutom har min Instagramvän @vibekedesign tipsat om att det alltid går att se när Instagram skickar mail till en under Säkerhet i Inställningar. Detta är ert bra tips om du får ett mail som du inte litar på, då kan du se om det verkligen är Instagram som skickat mailet eller någon annan. Det ska nog lösa sig detta!⠀
————————————————————————🇬🇧 Thank you so much all you lovely people who tried to help me yesterday when it stormed around my Instagram account! Now I have both 2-step authorization and a secure login. In addition, my Instagram friend @vibekedesign told that it is always possible to see when Instagram sends emails to someone under Security in Settings. A good suggestion if you get an email you don't trust, because then you can see if it really is Instagram that sent it. Have a lovely Friday everyone! ⠀
