Flowers in the House ~ Almost Spring 2013


Shh... No one told the dogwood, the Bradford Pear or the azalea that Spring is still 2 days away! All are beginning to put on a lovely show as this very dysfunctional Winter winds down!

Dogwood - Bromo Seltzer Bottle
While the real show is outside my window, I couldn't resist bringing in a few stems of this and that to join Jane's party - Flowers in the House. Hope you will hop on over and join the fun!
 Daffodils & Tulips

Ruffled Azalea - Ceramic Finger Vase

  1. Oh my gosh your spring is so far beyond the lonely daffodil blooming in my garden.

    Thank you for the hope of what is yet to come.

    it's sleety/rainy 30degrees here.

    I needed this.

    1. Jane... the weather has been very fickle here, but the blooms have persevered and are bringing lots of joy as a beautiful welcome to springtime. I have a new found respect for the lovely daffodils. My granddaughter and I planted 50+ bulbs several years ago. They put on an outstanding display for her 15th birthday a couple of weeks ago! Hang in there... Spring will find its way to y'all as well.... now we have to be prepared here for that cool snap we have every year at Easter! Did I say "fickle" weather? :-\

  2. The dogwood looks great in that blue bottle. And the daffs and tulips' green jug is lovely! x

    1. Thank you... I had to hijack the blue one from the bottle tree in the yard. Couldn't resist dressing it up with a twig or two of the dogwood. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. The blooms came from the dogwood tree that my son and I planted when he was a boy...some 20+ years ago. It is a very special tree! Thanks for visiting!

  4. Okay, I'm jealous. It's going to snow here tomorrow.
    But I love all your pretty flowers and great vases! Happy spring!

  6. Susan,
    You are sooooo lucky! If I am successful in joining Jane's blog party, you will feel very sorry for us Virginians. It has been so cold and wet here. Christa

  7. I love dog wood flowers, but I'd never had such elegant arrangement with it. All are radiant of spring. Thank you!

    1. Thanks for your kind words. The branches of the dogwood are lovely in each season, but especially Spring!

  8. Those dogwood blossoms are gorgeous. Our dogwoods here in Minnesota have much smaller blossoms. We still love them, but it's a treat to see your luscious Southern dogwoods. The daffodils and tulips are fabulous too, and I really enjoy all your interesting vases. All those from your garden? I am jealous. Mine is still snoozing under about a foot of snow. Thanks for the taste of spring!

    1. Sharon.. Our weather is up and down... Due for freezing temps by the weekend and rain. The beautiful blooming trees will suffer. Yes, all are from our yard. Stay warm... springtime weather is near.

    1. Julie... Our neighborhood is ablaze in pinks! I think all on our road have pink azaleas blooming and dogwoods galore! It is a lovely sight! Thanks for your visit.

  13. The flowers (and the vases!) are beautiful, we have dogwood almost only in Botanical gardens. Very unusual: here in Berlin at the moment we look into a sky dancing with feathery white snowflakes - lovely in themselves, but "wrong time, wrong place". Happy Easter!
