This time of year is such an exciting time. The snow melts and the colors being to shine through! The flowers being to bloom and everyone is a little bit happier. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, so I was quite thrilled when we recently moved to a little dutch town. Everyone here plants tulips! It is just plain beautiful to walk through the neighborhood and see all the brightly colored tulips lining the streets. One of my absolute favorite sights to see! iBulb (the flowering initiative from Anthos) supports 85 Dutch companies in the dry sales and forcing business, which together represent more than 90% of Holland’s flower bulb business.
With spring approaching and Easter and Mother’s Day just around the corner, these would make great gifts! While the potted bulbs may not have bloomed when you give the gift, the recipient will have a lasting gift that can even be replanted next year! They are readily available at your local grocery stores, garden centers, and flower shops so you can get started on your beautiful flowers as soon as you can get to the store!
If you are looking for a fun new way to display your potted bulbs, make sure and check out this pinterest page for some beautiful inspiraiton! Here is just a little preview of what you might find there! I know you are just dying for another reason to be on Pinterest ; )

I have never used potted bulbs, but have always wanted to!!
I love tulips too!! We were in AR last week visiting my parents and she has tulips planted around her front door. No blooms..yet..but we could see the green stems poking out of the ground. They are so beautiful!!
Every Fall and Spring my mother in law plants hundreds of bulbs throughout her yard, they look beautiful when they bloom! I adore that peeps centerpiece idea. :)
Tulips are the best! I love these ideas.

Wow, I didn’t know this before reading it here. I always thought this was of no use and meant only to harass people. I would like to know if this is a good strategy as I am starting a new coffee shop business. I have also got a coffee shop business plan sample form OGS capital and I really liked it a lot. If you guys know any other good service that would be helpful please tell me.

Awesome tips! I really found them to be helpful. I wanted some information on Malta citizenship by investment and found about it on Residency & Citizenship – deVere Insights by deVere Group. I really hope that they will help me out with this and it will help me in future after my retirement.
