Spring is the only time of year I give myself licence to purchase flowers for no particular reason!
I reasonably surmise that, having dragged myself through the long Winter, I need some splashes of colour and signs of life to get me through to the warmer days.
I think they’re more than just flowers. They’re hope. They say that ‘Spring always follows Winter’ but it can be hard to hold on to that fact some times.
I’ve tried to be a bit more imaginative with my displays this year – having a new house and lots of nooks and crannies to place them in has been an inspiration I think!
It’s funny how things can be repurposed and begin to work rather well as vases… or at least I think they work!
Being Welsh, daffodils will always have a special place in my heart. We had them growing in our garden when I was little and I loved how they reappeared each Spring, almost by magic without waiting for an invitation. Those golden trumpets and their dry, spicy smell herald the bright sun making it’s way back into our lives and a return to a more pleasant climate, at least I hope so…
It is with a hopeful look forward I say:
It’s only Vintage but I like it!
