What's on my windowsill: hyacinth time

So I had to go to Wallyworld to pick up some organic fertilizer for my flower beds. I'm standing in line to make said purchase and my eye caught some little potted bulbs lined up in a row. They had tulips and hyacinths. Since I'm excited about green things popping out of dirt right now, I decided to buy one. It was only a $1.00.

When I got home I searched around for a container to put it in. All of my flower pots were too big so I started searching my kitchen cabinets. I came across this coffee mug that I was given as gift. I love the mug but the rim is too thick to sip coffee from comfortably. (does that last sentence make sense?)

I plopped the pot into the mug and set it on my window sill. It's already grown 1/2 inch since yesterday. I can't wait for it to bloom.

What's on your windowsill?


  1. Now that is a super cute idea. A beautiful simple touch for so little.

    I also appreciate you sharing about the seed pots. The money I could have saved in the past. It was certainly one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments;-)

    Thank you so much for all your wonderful tips and cute ideas.


  2. I love the cup in the windowsill. Such promise!

    Funny you should ask what is on my windowsill. Click over to and click on the post "Spring Comes to My Blue Cottage." There you will see some Forsythia I was forcing.

    I learn much from your blog!

  3. What a sweet thing! Love simple things are very often the best things!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
