I don’t remember where I bought the little clay pots — probably at a thrift store back in Maryland more than ten years ago. The Muscaris came from the Schillerplatz Saturday flower market.
Then I moved the trio over to our rather skinny mantel.
I also tried out a second pot of Muscaris there too.
On the dining room table, I placed a row of daffodils (also from the flower market) and some supermarket red tulips. I bought the assorted vases at a thrift shop recently, inspired by “pins” like this one.
Since I have been taking part in this meme, my vase “wardrobe” has increased tenfold, meaning I had none before and now I have ten (foreign service life is hard on glassware).
Then I moved the rest of my tulip purchase to the dining room table. . .
. . . and tried out the vase assortment on the mantel.
Where it remains.
Above is another pretty flower arrangement from this weekend’s Easter market in the nearby town of Degerloch.
And on Saturday, I had my first Spargel stand sighting — at the Marktplatz farmers’ market.
From now through May, everyone in Stuttgart will be eating lots of white asparagus. Mmhh. . . lecker (delicious).
