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."
