I've had some gorgeous flowers brightening up my home throughout March. At the moment I've got these pretty roses, they're red tinged with yellow. They're displayed with some yellow carnations and another yellow feathery flower, which I don't know the name of, and they complement the roses well. This little posy cost £2.00.
Near the start of the month, I had some white chrysanthemums. These are a great bargain as they just seem to last forever, they were only put in the compost bin very recently. These were £3.00.
I was feeling a little down and taken for granted a few weeks ago so Mick gave me a surprise visit in the middle of the morning, when he should have been at work, with this gorgeous mixed bouquet. He doesn't often buy me flowers so it was a real surprise.
As the flowers began to fade, I picked out those which were still going strong, cut them down and made up a new arrangement in the jug which Mick had bought me for Christmas. They're still going strong.
I love my little jug and agree with the sentiment, Home Is Where The Heart Is.
It was Mother's Day two weeks ago and Eleanor bought me these gorgeous pale yellow carnations as well as the vase that they're displayed in.
I bought a tub of hyacinths from the local greengrocer for £1.99. I didn't know what colour they were going to be until they came in to flower but I wasn't disappointed in the least, isn't it a gorgeous colour? The scent was wonderful, far superior to any air freshener on the market, though the men of the house didn't agree, they weren't too keen on the perfume.
I'm sure you'll agree I've had a house filled with colour just lately. Which ones are your favourites?
