Tulips and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Since my planter is full of green and St. Patrick's Day is here I thought I'd share an update on it.  A lot of growth has occurred in the planter (with tulips, daffodils/narcissus, and (muscari) grape hyacinths) since the last time I posted about them 8 days ago.

March 16th
This sits in the window on the south side and gets some afternoon sun.

I got so excited to see that some flower heads forming.  The little grape hyacinths will be first to bloom.

A tulip (centered in the leaves) is making it's way up too!

These are the bulbs I planted. I suspect the size and color may be a little less than it if they were outside but lets hope they'll still put on a beautiful display! 
Perhaps by the time our snow has melted and my tulips start to come up this will have just finished flowering 😊

I can't do anything without an audience!  Teddy is the nosiest cat I think I've ever had but that's okay- after all why have a pet if you don't like their companionship!   Carmen is sitting by the floor vent below the planter (she's a watcher).


May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more, 
and nothing but happiness come through your door.


My friend Linda from Life and Linda posted a recipe for St. Patrick's Day that looks so good and I wanted to share it.  Below is an image to tempt you with a full link to the recipe and a tutorial for making them.

Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick's Day 
(we can all be Irish for the day 😉)! 


  1. Your plant looks great. Happy St. Patrick's Day. I hope you're having a great time celebrating!

  2. How exciting the plant is thriving. Before too long, you will have some beautiful flowers. Funny about your kitties. Our dogs follow me all around. Happy St. Patrick's Day and thanks for sharing my recipe.

  4. o fun and exciting to watch these coming up. What a wonderful spring home decor item to add in! I am now kicking myself for not doing this last fall - I bought the bulbs, many varieties, planted them outside all over, but ran out of steam and have several left, that I intended to put in a planter like this. But I never got around to it. Sigh...

  5. Happy Paddy's day to you to Liz! Can't wait to see your basket full of springtime in full bloom! Did you chill your bulbs? I tried one a few years ago, but didn't have great success. Since then I usually buy one full of assorted bulbs and just transplant it. Lowes usually has them, but I haven't made it there yet. I'm going to hop over and check out Lindas recipe. It looks good! Our family is having our St. Patty's dinner tomorrow. Already planned, but always next year. :)

  6. So much green already! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

  7. Hi Liz,
    I saw those corn beef sliders at Linda's. They look so delish. Hope you have a wonderful St. Patty's Day. Your plant is doing so great. Wow that is amazing how much it has grown in a short time.
