a bit of yellow.



while gathering groceries i spied bunches of daffodils and taking a tip from my sister, chose 4 little bunches for $1.49 each. once home i clipped an inch off the stems and dropped them into a vase my mother gifted me. and there you have it: a bit of yellow.



on the drive home i lowered the back window for evelyn to sniff the air for there was a break in the current storm. an ambulance zoomed past with sirens blaring! evelyn responded with a series of long and mournful howls. so i joined in. we sang a duet. no telling what the guy in the truck next to us was thinking...

  1. Beautiful vase Sherry. I am looking forward to daffodils in our area, too. Soon! We all need a bit of Spring. I too have been very remiss in reading my favorite blogs. So happy to see you are still here. love to hear what you and that pooch are up to. Thinking of you and always. Prayers sent for continued strength. Corinne

  3. Beauty!

    I did some clean out work in my front garden today and was happy to see spring bulbs had popped up! They won't be in flower for weeks yet, but ah! Spring is really here!

    I need some fresh flowers!

  5. Of course you know I love your gorgeous vase of daffodils, dear friend! I was going to buy some last weekend but my local store had raised the price for SIX to three dollars and forty nine cents - and they were already fully opened! So, I need to plan more in my yard for next year. I'd love to joined your duet and made it a trio!

  8. They are beautiful! What a loveky vase.

    I brought some daffodils home last week; here in Munich they are .89 for 8 (I bought 2 bunches). This week I have tulips ... 1.99 for a bunch of 10. 2 bunches make a lovely arrangement.

    Of course, we're closer to The Netherlands!

    Flip side: it's impossible to find good tortilla chips :-)

  9. The pretty daffodils bring a cheerful spring vibrance to your home. The vase from your mother is gorgeous. We once had a yellow lab that howled whenever he heard a siren. My late husband could get him started san siren by howling himself and then Riley would join in. It was hysterical. xo
