Blue or is it purple!!!

                                  Tea Cups are not just for tea!

While out browsing  at Lowes the other day for the Kitchen..

I sauntered into the garden section..............

They have mostly bushes and trees,,,,but I happened to see a 

skid of these..........

So for only $2.99 for a 4" pot they came home with me.

I knew where they were going and in what.....

This large tea cup in blue..........

Don't they  look great on my hutch....

I took it out of its pot and placed it in the large tea cup with

some extra soil....doesn't everyone keep potting soil on hand??

Then I added some moss to the top.

Look at the changes from Tues till Sat and watch it bloom.


                     Thanks for visiting!

  1. That is beautiful, Linda! It looks perfect on your hutch with the blues, white and yellow. I bet it smells nice too! Snow here today but it's sort of melting too. Enjoy your Saturday! Pamela

  2. Thanks for reminding me to keep collecting teacups. Because I love this look!

  3. I just love this! The blue cup is perfect for it. I used to collect tea cups and saucers...will have to remember this.


  4. Lovely, Linda. The blue cup is perfect for the flowers. Nice addition to your hutch.

  5. First off, I LOVE the hutch with all that beautiful blue and white pottery!! Gorgeous. Of course you always have a way with bulbs. It makes me think of spring just looking at these images. REally lovely.

  6. Fantastic, Linda...
    Don't forget to plant it in your garden..
    And...yes...of course I keep potting soil on hand!!

    Enjoy your Sunday...
    Linda :o)

  7. I've never seen a hyacinth in that light shade of blue, it's very pretty and looks great on your hutch.

  8. Love the look of your hyacinth in your blue cup! I bet the fragrance is wonderful too! Thanks for your visit too! Have a great week!

  9. Linda: I'd agree beautiful in a blue tea cup!
    Great idea!!! Thanks for sharing!
    Here in my part of Ont. we still wait for hyanciths to bloom outside! Still cold!!

  10. they certainly seem to like their new home in the blue tea cup and go so well with your blue and white decorating. Beautiful.
    Have a wonderful week. I am linking up to you through Mosaic Monday.

  11. That IS beautiful! I love the color in your kitchen and the blue cup is such a cute container for the flowers. That was a good idea to buy outdoor flowers for your indoors!

  12. What a beautiful choice for a planter. I love blues of any shade! Outdoor flowers indoors add a lot of life to a room!

    Have a wonderful week.

  13. What a great idea. It looks great, too, with your blue and whites on the hutch!

  14. Beautiful, I have a large tea cup planter that I adore.


  15. Oh, my! I think I need to go to Lowe's. I even have a blue bowl that might just work.

    Yes, your hutch looks wonderful.

  16. Oh, this is love to me!!! What a gorgeous cup of flowers!!!! It is perfect on your hutch... or mine!!!!

  17. It's gorgeous, Linda! I love spring bulbs, especially the hyacinth with their heavenly aroma.
    And yes, I always have potting soil on hand...I feel lost without it!

  18. That is such a pretty way to pot up the hyacinths. I wish we had a Lowe's!
