On Monday, we went downtown for lunch and a stop at Stuttgart’s Markthalle or indoor food market. I also stuck my head in the stylish home goods store that occupies its second floor and discovered that it was having a 50% off sale on Christmas ornaments. So I bought five of these little trees, which I had coveted earlier in December.
At the same store, I also picked up some forced daffodils (1.90 euros). I liked the bright yellow plastic pot that they were already planted in, so I just dropped them into a little glass vase with some shell chips.
Two of the buds opened up overnight. Very early thoughts of spring. . .
To see what other garden bloggers put in vases yesterday, please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden. She hosts this Monday meme.
Happy New Year to all!
