Your First Monday Morning Flowers of Spring!



Happy Monday!

Betty's People all get flowers to start the week.
These beauties are the perfect way to start the first full week of Spring.
When I bought them, they were closed up, but one day in water and here they are in all their glory.

Hope you have all you need to bloom today!



It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
~Mark Twain



Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn

thank you for the daffy-down-dillys -- mine died the day after i bought them, so this makes up for it entirely :)

Thank you for sharing your lovely daffodils/jonquils. It was a rainy, cold day here today, so these provided the necessary bright spot.

I can think of no better way to start the week than with gorgeous blooms. Love the Daffodils on the red background.

Beautiful!

The only transplants that survived the trek to the High Desert are daffodils that I've had for six years. The sprouts are just about 4-6 inches above ground now. I can't wait!
