These are the flowers I had on the dining room table this weekend. I combined various varieties of daffodils and Hellebore Christmas Rose. I thought it was a stunning combination! What do you think? Yellow daffodils are so bright and cheerful on these dreary February days. They brighten my mood. I don’t think I’ve ever cut any hellebore blooms for cut arrangements, but will do so again. They have such short stems (at least mine do) that they have to go in short vases along with other short-stemmed flowers.
I placed the vase in the kitchen window just to capture some of the exterior light. I made pictures on the table which didn’t quite do the arrangement justice. And I might add that I’m not much at flower arranging. My sister got all those genes; her arrangements are gorgeous.
What are your favorite flowers? Do you most always have fresh flowers in the house? Are you able to gather flowers from your garden or do you purchase them? If you're like me, you always WANT to have flowers inside, but don't ALWAYS pull it off!
The next time I share plants with you -- in a few days -- I'm going to photograph my sweet basil growing in pots in the sunroom. I have been really lucky that the cuttings I started in the fall from the mother plant have lasted this long into the winter. Basil may be my favorite herb, at least for cooking!
