Outside I'm building my collection
Inside, I don't really wait for things to happen on Valentine's day; it's been months since we've had fresh flowers in the house, and I love how special they make a room feel. (There are pink stocks tucked in another corner, filling the whole room with the scent of cloves.)
I think those hellebores might be even prettier than these double tulips. Either way, there's something to be said for these hardy harbingers of spring; I love a rough-and-tumble beauty.
