I know many of you are blanketed in snow, and part of me wants to be frolicking in a big pile of it right now. Yet out here on the west coast, we’ve been blessed with a hint of spring. I was in a euphoric trance this morning as I walked through Lowe’s garden department. Rows and rows of tulips and daffodils. Oodles of fresh new plants budding for spring !
It’s still cold around here, but the cherry blossom trees have just started to bud. Just two days ago, I clipped a few branches off our mature cherry blossom tree, then I brought some branches indoors to force them to bloom.
I’ve never had real cherry blossoms budding in my house – I’ve always enjoyed the fakes from Pier One. But these beautiful pink blossoms are making me smile today.
“They’re real, and they’re spectacular.”
I simply followed these steps by Better Homes & Gardens.
