Springtime Entertaining - DIY Tabletop with Daffodils and Pansies

The Season of Spring is in the air with daffodils and pansies.
Here are some simple and easy ways to create spring arrangements that will impress when gathering with friends around the table.

I styled this table with a trio of daffodils nestled in purchased birds nests. So easy to DIY! .




Daffodil season starts in much of the country during March. The small tête-à-tête daffodils are inexpensive and lovely, and available in both supermarkets and flower shops. Be sure to purchase them early when the flower have not fully budded out.

Gently remove the clumps of bulbs from the pot and dirt.  Remove most of the dirt  leaving just enough to support bulbs in nest. 

Place bulbs into bird's nests purchased from the craft store.  Surround with moss to support the bulb. Use a few colored eggs to adorn your arrangement.

Use as one single centerpiece or several for your dining room table.

PS. After the bloom is spent, you can place bulbs in your flower garden for next year's Spring garden.




Or maybe pansies are your cup of tea?
My inspiration here was create a simple garden centerpiece just by using tiny pots of pansies nestled in moss down the center of the table.  

Use a long galvanized tray mounded with moss and set the pots of flowers in.

  5. "Which Forex pair and time frame is best to trade" is the frequently asked question and I want do give you the DEFINITE ANSWER.

    Are you expecting that I am going to say something like EUR/USD on 5-minute time frame or GBP/USD on daily...? No, it is not so simple, but SIMPLE ENOUGH we can figure it out!

    The "PROBLEM" is that markets change over time. If GBP/USD was a well trending currency pair a few years ago, today it is another one.

    I actually want to let you know about a SPECIAL TOOL that I use to find the BEST TRENDING PAIRS among all the Forex pairs.

  6. Let me explain the basic principle how most Forex systems work. They are tuned up to work in a specific market condition. They often make money in a trending market, but loose money in a choppy market. It is not a problem as long as the market is trending and the system is making more money than it loses. Such a system can be profitable for several months and you would be happy with it. BUT...
    PREPARE FOR THE WORST...
    Market change over time. A well designed system starts with trend analysis to stay away from potentially losing trades. There are two problems of how a Forex system recognizes the trend.
    PROBLEM: FALSE "STRONG TREND" INDICATION.
    The system responds only to immediate price action. An explosive price movement that is usually the result of news release is tempting people to jump in and make a profit. It looks like a "strong trend", but what usually happens next is a hard fall.
    To avoid falling into this trap, check for the SOLUTION to find a REAL trend:

    SECOND PROBLEM: TREND RELIABILITY
    Most systems use various indicators to determine the trend. Actually, there is nothing bad about using indicators. One Simply Moving Average can do the job. The problem comes with the question: "Is the market trending NOW?" Whether the market is trending or not trending is not like black and white. The correct question is: "How well the market is trending?"
    And here we have something called TREND RELIABILITY.
    Trends exist and they can be traded up and down for a profit. You have to focus only on the most reliable market trends. "Forex Trendy" is a software solution to find the BEST trending currency pairs, time frames and compute the trend reliability for each Forex chart:
