Flower Power!

I just love flowers, and looking back at these wonderful cheerful flowers from last spring, it's hardly surprising! I'm not into spending a fortune on them either...they're mostly gifts, reduced or home grown!

These beautiful pink roses were a gift from friends, and lived for a full three weeks on my kitchen windowsill, hard to believe I know, but they really did! Other flowers that came indoors last spring were just the wild but dazzling foxgloves and forsythia, daisy flowers of all descriptions and sizes, as well as lots of hedgerow flowers.

Massed together, they cheer and brighten up any room for next to nothing! A few minutes cutting and arranging them gives me days of delight and happiness!

Come on spring, I can't wait! I can already see the beginnings of this years tulips, the daffodils are out, as are the snowdrops, but I've yet to bring some indoors. Problem is of course, they look too good in the garden! I'll wait a while, until there's and abundance of flowers and then the odd one won't be missed! 'Till then I'll look at the photos from last year :)
