Flowers for the kitchen.

The other day it was so windy I decided to cut the tulips, which were swaying dangerously about. If I hadn’t, they would have been battered for sure. While I was making the rhubarb and apple crumble you see in the pictures, I was watching out of my window and it was as if the tulips were saying ‘save me, save me’ so I did.

I think they made a lovely show in my country kitchen, don’t you?

The chicken butter dish is new. ย Isn’t it just so cute! My last one was Tupperware and had lasted for more than 40 years. Can you believe that! Are you still using Tupperware? If so how old is it? ย Can you beat me at 40+ years?

Even so I couldn’t bear to part with my Tupperware butter dish, which had been such a faithful friend all those years. It’s been dropped on the floor numerous times by my three exuberant sons. I can’t see the new one lasting so long.

These parrot tulips fascinate me.

…and through my kitchen door, I can see this pretty bowl of pansies. They have survived right through our harsh winter and are now in full bloom. Just lovely!

  2. Ah, you saved the tulips. And I do love the pretty pansy faces saying the same thing. That butter dish might not last as long, but it is definitely precious at this moment! ๐Ÿ™‚
