Friday flowers

The most amazing bright orange tulips, purchased on sale the day after Valentine's Day.

Three people stopped me as I walked home with these, just to exclaim over the color.

I love spring. We're currently alternating between sunshine and rain and it's perfect. Mostly because I can avoid watering my poor neglected plants - I may love flowers, but I do not have a green thumb and I'll take all the help I can get.

  19. LOVE these! I almost bought some gerbera daisies this SAME color yesterday, but they seemed just a little droopy, and I didn't need anything else to discourage me from buying fresh flowers again, so I went with some lovely pompoms. :)

  20. Wow those are stunning! Our jasmine is juuuust barely starting to pop - there's about a million buds on it but only a few have opened. Of course I cut a bunch immediately to put in my room for the scent - so delicious. Hurry up, spring!

  30. the tulips, they are orange and delicious. The alarm clock, however, makes my heart skip four beats. I love it, I love it, I love it. Please direct me to the little antique store that has one for each room of my house...
