Flowers, Bunnies and Fun! Oh My!

At the store where I work, Springtime is busting out all over, especially in my floral department and I am loving every inch of it! Not only is everything colorful, bright and fun, there is also an amazing aroma coming from the flowers! I've had lots of customers lately pass by the department, stop and comment on how lovely it smells, then they usually end up buying a plant. Love when that happens!

Okay, enough talk. On with the show. . . . . . .enjoy the photos!


First up, lots and lots of fabulous, flowering, colorful plants!








Yummy, yellow Mums.





Pretty, pink Hyacinth.






The beautiful, blue Hyacinth (my personal favorite.) I could plant my nose right there in the middle and walk around with it like that ALL DAY! mmmmmmm!





Then of course there is the gorgeous Gerbera Daisy! Love these variegated ones!





Look at this one! Those of you who know me well, know why I love it!






And here's a similar Gerbera in a cute Easter box. I started out with fifteen of these and there are only two left. . .go figure. . .






We also have these radiant, Rieger Begonias.








Here is the inside of a red Tulip. . .stunning color!






And of course the elegant Easter Lily.






Now for some cute decor.


A sweet birdhouse. . . .





. . . .that hangs alongside these cute, egg wreaths.






Wonderful pastel colors. . . .love!






Some fun pot covers.






And there are bunnies, bunnies and more bunnies!






This one has a tummy made with a ball of yarn!












Bunny balloons too. . . .so fun for the kids!









And last but not least, these are the two large bunnies that greet you as you walk into the store.




I'm very lucky to work where I do! No matter what the weather is like outside, it's always sunny inside! As I type this, it's only 35 degrees, with rain and a few snow flurries too. We're thankfully not suppose to get much accumulation of the cold, white stuff, but not too far from here they received 8 inches! Our weather report does say that it's suppose to be sunny with 60, glorious degrees on Easter Sunday, so we will be able to sit outside on my deck. . .yay!

I hope you've enjoyed the photos and Happy Easter to everyone! :)

Oh wow, what a post! Loved the tour! I love the smell of hyacinths too -- although they don't last long here -- too hot! -- and that bunny with the yarn tummy totally cracked me! And the pastel vases? So pretty! And the birdhouse with the flower is too clever! I should send you some of this weather we're having -- was 96 yesterday, ugh! HUGS! :)
