Buds and Bouquets

My babies were dying. The crocus, the daffodils, the camellia.
Mother Nature planned a surprising temperature drop last night.
They had to come in last evening
.


















So I clipped and I snipped....















and got my hands dirty





To find
this bud


and that bud

and even his bud...

all over the house
Blooming...
in the morning sun


in vases


and baskets
and empty tea pitchers


P.S.
I picked 'em for you too
Enjoy

A beautiful flowery collection

Linda said...

Those are just gorgeous, we don't have anything even close to resembling buds or flowers here in Connecticut yet. Heck, I haven't even seen a daffodil yet!

Thank you for picking these for us, your Majesty!

Travis said...

Beautiful. I walked out the front door of our office building to go over to Subway at lunch, and the tulips were in full bloom.

Fantastic!

Paige said...

Gorgeous pics! I just saw a teeny stand of daffodils on the corner, being beaten down by rain and it made me sad. Now I feel better!

Mimi Lenox said...

Vodka Mom - These are actually camellias but I do have white peonies that I'm waiting on. I'll send you a pic when they bloom!

I love all of those gorgeous bouquets of flowers. I wish I could smell the daffodils.

In muy former yard, I had something that bloomed every month of the year. At my new home, not very much to look at. A few transplants from former home. I do have a lot of dogwoods. That will have to suffice for now. I am doing container gardening.

Mimi Lenox said...

Katherine - Thank you! I enjoyed them.

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - I adore dogwoods. Are they pink or white?
