    Such a nice touch! That will surely help. Daffodils are my favorites!

    Our local grocery store has potted tulips, crocuses, daffy-dills and hyacinths ready to pop open. I will get me a pot of them and then around March sometime thats when the Daffodils come in and yah, we can get them for around $1.50 a dozen too. I get them budded, and put them in the vegetable crisper and take out a few after the first flowers started wilting. They hold up really well in the crisper. I used to work for a florist and they keep all their flowers in the cooler, so what is a vegetable crisper - a cooler!!!!!! Enjoy the Spring in our home, with the snow outside. Brrrrrrr!

    Thank you. Made me feel better, since when I opened the garage door to get the paper had to wade thru 4 " of snow, but that's just the beginning here. By the time the storm finishes Monday morning, we are suppose to have about 16" of the stuff.

    About three inches of new snow overnight here in Northern Indiana. But the fickle weathermen were calling for 18 inches at one point.

    I love fresh flowers also! Unfortunately my 2 cats, both indoor only, think that they are special treats for them. They don't seem to eat them but do carry them all through the house. I keep trying each year, making sure I get "safe" flowers, just in case they have finally gotten tired of playing with them. They turn 3 in April and really hope they have gotten to the point that they can just enjoy seeing the flowers without feeling that they have to actively participate in placing them around the house!

    Thanks for the bit of cheer! They are refreshing, and so pretty. Love the bright yellow to chase away the overcast skies and frigid temps.

    Thank you so much. We have had a mild winter here on the Washington State coast, so far. Bulbs are coming up, can't wait for all the color.

    Daffodils are my favorite flower. They're my first positive sign that spring is REALLY here. Can't wait, especially since we're getting lots of blowing snow now here in northern IL.

    Thank you. They are lovely and brought a smile to my face.

    My daffodils are patiently waiting until the time is right and the snow is gone to pop out for a visit! But spring seems like such a long way away.

    Hugs to you for bringing spring to all of us! My daffadowndillies are poking their buds up now and will soon share their glory but you definitely got my mind off the gloom of winter and on to the anticipation of SPRING!
    These may represent the best money you ever spent. Thanks so very much for sharing! Be blessed.
