Flowers in the House (of One Wild and Crazy March)


Unfortunately, I am not only late to Jane's Flowers in the House party, I'm also short on flowers in the house because Susan and I have been busy trying to get them in other places. So here is a flowers in the house (of muffins)...

One in the commode (at home, a sweet picking by Joe)



And some in the house (of coffee) up the block. Kind of wishing that they could all be mine to wake up and see tomorrow morning when of all things winter will actually be making an appearance for the year. Not sure I'm so ready yet to be growing these things for other people to enjoy. We didn't think these daffs were going to come up and be the typical yellow (you never know with some bags of bulbs), but now I'm thinking that maybe we don't need to be so quick to dismiss the ordinary as not being worthwhile.

 For Jane's sweet pickings and what's blooming now in Virginia (lilacs already, holy moly), visit Jane at SmallButCharming and follow the links to her fine flower-loving friends too. (Sorry Jane. Next time I'll be sure to remember to save some for home and for me.)

Oh, but your pretty flowers will be enjoyed by so many others. They are not ordinary at all. They are just lovely.

Your flowers are always a treat to see, whether in your window or in a cafe.

And there are no ordinary flowers me thinks. Even the first dandelion looks good to me after a grey winter.

There's nothing ordinary here, and you can never be too late when they all look so pretty. And thankfully last night's Winter blast didn't make much difference.

love your sweet bouquets, and your beautiful photography. and i agree with the others - the daffodil may a common flower, but their simple beauty, vibrant color, and the way they signal spring makes them pretty extraordinary.
