the power of flowers

Today I learned a lesson in the power of a handful of tulips.

A co-worker of mine has gone through an incredibly rough time over the last several months.
Today is her birthday.
Her favorite color is purple.
On a routine grocery trip I spied some purple tulips.
I took them to her at work.
Unexpected tulips delivered to the birthday girl = unexpected hugs given to the bearer of tulips :)
All that happiness from a handful of purple tulips.

And these little pretties made by Lorrie are going to brighten up the neighborhood quilt this afternoon as I piece all the blocks together :)

And lastly, that Mary Engelbreit... she surely got her message right today...


  1. Beautiful tulips, and a beautiful gesture. Who wouldn't be even a little bit cheered up by the gift of a bunch of flowers? Have a lovely day! Danielle x

  2. Flowers make the world a nicer place to be!


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading a little bit about me and taking the time to comment! Have a wonderful day!
