It’s much smaller than what I’ve been looking for, which means I am still on the hunt for another! But this will do for now! I just love the charm and character these old urns bring into our homes!
I decided to paint it white and sit it outside in the weather to age a bit…but I couldn’t wait to begin planting bulbs in it! I lined the inside with a plastic bag filled with dirt and gravel. Crocus bulbs are sitting on top and being forced into bloom inside. Oh how I love a hint of spring indoors!
After a few weeks a few blooms began to appear, but the showcase of flowers was not what I had hoped for.
So I took all of the bulbs outdoors and planted them in my front yard grass to bloom next year! The crocus bulbs bloom early enough her in Washington State that it won’t interfere with the mowing of the lawn. I think this will be fun, but we will have to wait and see how it works out…
I picked up a bleeding heart to replace the crocus bulbs…so pretty! I’m sure many more beautiful blooms will follow!
Ideally, this one I saw over at White Ironstone Cottage is exactly what I want (but a matching pair) ~ oh, that would make me so very happy!
