A Little Something to Chase the Rain Away!

Some daff's from Janelle's garden. The heavy snow we had broke many of them so she harvested them and made lots of bouquets! The little blue vase and three red pots I used were bought at the Reynolda Gardens shop. I plant to put my little pots of African Violets in the three red ones.





Daphne clipped from Janelle's shrubs. The whole house is scented with their fragrance.



My Mesclun mix. Its growing well. See my old Miracle Whip jar I found in the woods last summer.

The daffodils are just beautiful!

The bent daffodils made beautiful, exuberant bouquets, with quite a variety of daffodils. You have to admire the early spring bulbs, since they really take their chances with the frost and snow.

Such beautiful daffs! They made lovely bouquets.

I envy Janelle her Daphne. It has the most wonderful fragrance. I think perhaps I have the right conditions for one now though... :)

Your pictures are so nice and clear too.

What make of camera do you use and settings to make sharp awesome flower photos like this!?

The bouquet's are stunning.
I have a few that came up and I am going to pick them and put them in my little white mini vase.
Before the frost gets them.
