First Bouquet of the Season!

The weather was really nice today so I took advantage of that and raked leaves and did some garden clean up. There is not much going on with the gardens here in Central Pennsylvania yet, but I do have some crocus blooming and the daffodils are beginning to open, well just this one variety so far. I have other varieties that I enjoy but these are my early ones. I picked them and brought them inside to enjoy.

My mother rarely picked flowers to enjoy inside, she wanted to see them as a collection in her garden when she looked out her windows. I prefer to see them in a vase and will most likely have at least one vase full from now till the first frost. How about you? Do you have a new bouquet every week?

Hi Kay,
I'm so sorry you don't have any of those stores near you because if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be able to decorate my house so affordably. Maybe one day soon you could take a road trip and find some.

Kay, I love the bouquet and the pic as well. I really like the way you "frost" the edges of your pics too. To answer your question about a new bouquet every week? Please let me pick myself up off the floor from laughing! A new weed or dustball, maybe, but a new bouquet? Martha Stuart hasn't been around my neighborhood to "sprinkle" her fairy dust on my muse in that direction...just yet anyway! ha ha

ok....guess you can tell we're related! I DO have a new bouquet in my house nearly every week. But....I buy mine! As I type, I DO happen to have a few vases of hyacinths that came out of my flower bed. The bed was already established when I moved here and consists of hyacinth (now) and hostas (summer). hehe's maintenance free!!

I DID look at a lovely bunch of tulips at a market today....but the price tag (for about 10-12 tulips) was $16.99! (Rowayton prices!!) My hyacinth was MUCH less expensive!
