The Little White Chair

The previous owner of our home planted tulips in a circle which were to surround a bird bath. When she moved she gave the bird bath to a neighbour.

Once we understood what was supposed to go in the middle of the ring of tulips we bought a birdbath. However, our bird bath had the biscuit one dark summer night. Much to our dismay, one morning we awoke to find that someone, who obviously was a hater of bird baths had visited under a cloak of darkness. Our bird bath was smashed.

We have never replaced that fated bird bath. Instead we have a ring of tulips, with nothing in the middle. Until I had the brilliant idea to put this little white chair in the middle and do a photo shoot with a little girl.

Oh, I love it. And, it totally works perfectly for pictures. You know, that whole trick of the camera field of fresh tulips look.

Yaya said...

That's a great idea!!!! Is that a gymboree outfit?

How awful!! I got my mailbox (and so did some other neighbors) smashed a few years ago. Very upsetting to my boys. I also can not do christmas lights...someone likes to cut the wires to be funny. Idiots!!! How do parents not know their children are out in the middle of the night doing awful things!

What a jolly good idea! And those tulips are exquisite. I do love them, but haven't had much luck growing them for some reason. None of the bulbs like my garden very much. I don't think the soil is cold enough where we are. Our garden is also very protected so we get no frost. I will just have to enjoy yours for now!

That is way too cute! Looks like she LOVED the photo shoot too!

Seriously... who would be so cruel to trespass on someone's property to destroy a... BIRDBATH? Come on people! Where are the birdies going to bath now? A puddle?? Ewww!

Some people are jerks... but Yay for you to be so creative to make use of that "ring of tulips" (Can you hear Johnny Cash singing now?)

Now do the tulips come back every year, or is this your first year in this house? I'm not much of a gardener so I dont know, but I'd love to plant some tulips some time.
The chair and toddler are adorable!

How absolutely precious. However, I can't understand people who are bent on destruction. How sad and angry they must be.
