Spring is coming!

This weekend my family will come over for an Easter Brunch, so I made a flower centerpiece to fill the table. 

What you need:
Small vase that fits through the opening of the jar

First I cut the tulips off about 10cm under their head. To stop them from growing, I pierced a little hole just under their head with a needle. 

I filled a jar with water and arranged the tulip heads in a circle along the edges of the jar. 

Then I put the daffodils in the vase and the vase in the jar before they were blooming, so the flowers wouldn't break off because they were too big. After two days the daffodils started to bloom and now the centerpiece is ready to show off.  


After some vain hope a couple of times I think spring is finally coming to Western Europe. Only a bit of cold weather in the forecast for this weekend and then temperatures will rise, I hope. In my garden some of the flowers came up weeks ago, but only started blooming this week.
