Daffodils Light Up a Room


I treated us to a bouquet of daffodils and put them in this blue vase, which brought spring right in to our kitchen. Daffodils at Whole Foods were one bunch for $2.50 so I couldn't resist buying TWO bunches. These golden beauties make me smile whenever I enter the kitchen and see them glowing sun yellow on the table.
"A house with daffodils in it is a house lit up, whether or not the sun be shining outside. Daffodils in a green bowl --- and let it snow if it will." -- A. A. Milne
And George H. Ellwanger wrote in 1889 in The Garden's Story "Of all the floral catalogues, the most exquisitely tantalizing is the daffodil catalogue. The further you read, the deeper the gold."

I have daffodils in my yard and they are sure making my day extra nice. I love the colors that splash! Do they come in other colors? I have the yellow ones as well as the white with the yellow centers. Beautiful flower arrangement, Terra.

Gorgeous and the perfect vase to display them in. Don't you just love the yellow & blue combo? I have daffodils growing around a blue birdbath. The view makes me smile every time I look out the window.

I love that quote by Milne, and I LOVE LOVE daffodils. Yellow flowers are all so pretty, and I love a jonquil... but there is nothing quite like the full grown daffodil.

It's the most whimsical flower there is.

Buttercup said...

I'm with you. A friend left me a daffodil plant and a hyacinth plant. What fun to walk into my kitchen and see their bright flowers. Can't resist spring flowers.

Denise said...

I wish that they grew and bloomed all summer........ They are so beautiful...

Kindred spirits. I bought darling daughter some daffys at Trader Joes while I was visiting her last week.

They just lift your spirits don't they?
