Well, maybe not entirely. Outside it’s currently overcast, 27 degrees and snowing.
But I know a secret to make it feel more like spring inside.
As soon as I see these at our local grocery store……
“Is that asparagus?” Jamie says.
I’ll admit, they aren’t very attractive looking, and I know most people don’t even notice them.
But I know what they can do, and at $1.99 a bundle…..What’s to loose?
All I need is a vase…..
…and some sharp clippers.
Just clip each stem at a 45 degree angle with the clippers.
Then arrange them in a good-sized vase filled with cool water. Shorter ones on the edges; and taller ones towards the middle.
The flowers immediately soak up the water……5 minutes later some of them are already starting to pop open.
And in about 2 days,
Cut daffodils will only last a few days…..
But what a bright, sunny couple of days they are.
You call them instant sunshine — I call them a big, fat morale boost. Same thing. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen them sold like this!
My local grocery store (an Albertson’s division) has them every year. I don’t think anyone ever looks twice at them. They aren’t very pretty in the store…..
They are lovely! It’s a shame they don’t last to long!
Just a couple days Kim. But that 10 buck investment is well worth it.
What a way to cheer up a day. Can you believe this weather? Where in Dallas did you go for your Daffodils?
I grabbed them from Tom Thumb in the Cliff. I took the week off work…and the weather is really bringing me down.
I have never seen Daffodils sold this way! I’m going on the hunt for them this weekend…Daffodils make me smile. You, sir, are a genius…. 🙂
Your word, not mine……but I’ll take it.
How pretty! I at first thought they were Tulips.
Around here, the Daffodil parade takes place in Tacoma, about 45 or so to the south and the floats are all covered in them. Used to go every year as a kid, even was IN the parade as my High School participated in it, and they may still do so. Happens in the spring, March or April, and it can be cold and sometimes wet on the day of the parade.
Daffodil parade? How awesome is that?
