In a vase on Monday: pink Muscari

This morning began with my three tiny pots of a pink variety of Muscari armeniaccum in the kitchen window — along with the Schnapps glasses that I’ve been collecting from our trips in the last year.

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. . .

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).
