The perks of Southern living . . . . . . . . . . . . .


. . . . . . . . often begin with the weather.

We are so fortunate right now having what everyone is calling 'an early Spring'.
This February weather is fantastic - not saying it will last as there can be really
harsh weather here even in March, but we are certainly enjoying these mild days
 and embracing the sunshine and brilliant blue skies.


Yesterday we did some garden chores and it was actually hot outside.
I was able to gather these pretty blooms to bring into the cottage. . . . . . 
I love cutting my own flowers, even just a few can bring color and smiles
for several days.



Happy Sunday. . . . . . . . . I'm sending these blooms north to all my friends
 who won't see their daffodils until later. Do take care moving all that snow!

  1. I hope that the weather doesn't swing back too shockingly for you. It's no fun to have the seasons flip... Beautiful bouquet against an adorable cottage.

  2. Dear Mary, Thank you for the lovely present. Our snow is mostly gone. Even have a few snowdrops. But that is all.

  7. Your daffodils are lovely! They help to remind me that although we woke up to snow this morning, spring really will arrive eventually.

  8. I well remember driving through your part of the world in February during the 70's when we would head straight south for the Keys. When we would get to the place where we could see daffodils and primroses we'd know we'd 'arrived at spring'. The colours of your bouquet are such a treat. We will see them soon here too.

  9. We don't have snow anymore - but we also don't have flowers just yet. Thanks for sharing - your sweet bouquet is so cheery. We are still getting our flowers at the supermarket - but I noticed today that the tulip fields south of here are beginning to grow - about 3 inches tall so far.

  10. And all those daffodils, it's so English too. LOVE it. My favourite flowers, actually.

    " I was able to gather these pretty blooms to bring into the cottage. . . I love cutting my own flowers,"
    --You know, I can relate. I love to do that too (to my neighbours' blooms) and enjoy them indoors as well! I'm not so sure they are quite as thrilled, mind you. Hahahhahahaha

  11. A beautiful bouquet. Normally we have a week in February with springtime sunshine, but not this year. My daffodils are behind schedule for blooming.

  12. Such beautiful flowers! It will be a while before the daffodils are out here, but we have spotted quite a few snowdrops and aconites in people's gardens when we were out for a walk yesterday, and catskins along the fields. Oh, and bees!! There is nothing like the hum of bees to make me think of spring and summer.

  15. Thanks for the bouquet of fresh spring flowers, Mary. We are in a warm spell here this week which is a nice change but it is still very white outside and will be for many weeks yet. Any colour is welcome. xx Pam
