  1. Pretty, pretty, pretty! But Day 9 is so sad....

  2. What a great post! I love the color combination and to see it go from beginning to end. Thank you.

  3. Lovely photos, Tatyana, as always! It looks like you have placed one glass vase into another, smart idea that makes it so much more interesting to look at! I am so ready for spring to begin!

  4. Hahaha, i like the title, reminds me of The Lives of a Cell by Lewis Thomas, i read decades ago! The vase is so elegant and the flowers very beautiful with those color combination. So they lasted for 4 days? Here they will not last for 30min till they wilt without blooming. Moreso, we can't even grow them, they love it cold. But you should see what we are blooming under the heat of the sun! please come! haha.

  5. I love the pictures ! Great ideea to take the bouquet in the garden. Have a lovely spring, Tanya !

  6. Such a pretty combination of colours, so vivid and pleasing to the eye! They are fleeting moments of beauty :)

  7. That was very see the transformation. The colors in that bouquet are stunning...remind me of spring. I am getting used to the fact that spring is here, early or not. My daffodils are blooming, and my tulips are breaking the surface of the ground. Spring is here...

  8. Wonderful to see the progression of time in a static post. Very inventive!

  9. a beautiful spring :)

  10. As I started scanning down, I wondered how long the bouquet would last. Thanks for showing Day 9, too. What a gorgeous bouquet.

  11. Love the tight iris buds with the bright blue peeking out of the rolled bud. Nice progression of buds.

  12. A nice vase of Spring cheer ,I so love to see tulips and iris together.

    Thankyou a real pleasure .

  13. I've just come across your blog and it's gorgeous! Lovely Spring flowers x

  14. Such beautiful blooms and photographs!

  15. Dear Tatyana. Only you can wow us with such simplistic beauty. I absolutely love these colors together and they look wonderful in your garden. I love the vases you chose too. You're so talented!

  16. Such a beautiful bouquet with perfect color combination! Nice photographs to show the progression, but I have often wished such pretty arrangements could last longer!

  17. Thanks for the bouquet Tatyana! Nothing says spring like fresh flowers. I think I actually made it through winter without going crazy!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
