Isn't this just amazing?
The way you buy these dirt cheap and dry from a box in the super market, pop them in water and a couple of days later…
…you have this!?
That is QUITE impressive. And such foresight to take the before pic!
Do tell us more about the green chevron background… did I miss that post?
Who can frown near a daffodil? I don’t remember ever seeing them sold that way in our California Markets. Your post is very cheerful considering it snowed here today, sigh! Thanks for the happy photo!
Nope, you didn’t miss it. It’s a craft project that didn’t turn out 100% right… Still wanna see it?
How gorgeous! Speaking of daffodils, I felt like such a garden nerd yesterday. I was taking my daily tour of the yard to see how much snow had melted and noticed that my daffodils had started to come up. I actually said – out loud – YAY! Also kinda neat that they’re called Easter lilies in Swedish and have the good manners to start coming up exactly in time for Easter!
We’re known for our polite florals over here.
Obviously!! We’d like to see everything you’ve done 🙂
Really its good looking but how much it was purchased.
Wow! It looks great!
And I like your wallpaper <3
I’ve been taking them from the yard by the handful–such a cute, free flower arrangement for Easter. Never seen them for sale in a store here though.
Happy, happy picture! I am so in love with yellow right now.
Oh, such a lovely picture. I wish that I had taken “before” pictures of mine. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s and was so surprised to see them all stacked up and not in water. What a beautiful symbol of Easter and spring!
that’s an image of easter if ever there was one 🙂
Brilliant color and beautiful! Thanks for ALL you do!
looking at mine in a vase right now, lovely sign spring is here for sure 🙂
and yes was wondering about the background too!
We used to live in the Willamette Valley in the state of Oregon (US west coast). My husband worked 50 north of where we lived and drove through daff and tulip fields on the way home. During bloom season, he could get several dozen for just a few dollars–he would splurge and stop and get them twice a week. I miss that!
Now we have cats that want to eat any plants, so no flowers indoors. ;-/
My head knows that spring inevitably follows winter. However, every year as winter drags on and on and on I have a small irrational fear that maybe this will be the one year when it will never end. The day the cheap daffodils appear in the grocery store I know that spring really will come and I feel so happy and relieved and I buy several bunches just as you did.
So… Hoorah, for spring!
In our region of the Pacific Northwest we have the Daffodil Festival – complete with a Daffodil Parade and a Daffodil Queen!
Yes! I second Leena.
The power of suggestion….I am going to buy some tomorrow first opportunity I get. It is amazing. So glad spring has finally arrived!
It´s so beautiful. I love your blog and I read almost everyday. Kisses to Mini and Bonus.

Gorgeous! i had some just a last weekend!
So are you up in the Skagit Valley? or elsewhere. I lived in Bellingham for a couple of years and Eugene for 10. Now I’m in Wisconsin.
The tulip fields in the Skagit Valley were always so amazing in spring–I don’t think I’ve ever seen colors so vibrant.
Hi Kari – Actually, Pierce County is the Daffodil Festival territory but I know what you mean about Skagit Valley. Visiting during the Tulip Festival is just gorgeous with all the colors!! Although I have to tell you that the little boys I was with in the tulip fields were WAY more fascinated with finding all the rubber bands dropped by the tulip harvesters…at least everyone was happy!
Bellingham is a great place too! I visited there last summer and enjoyed the atmosphere and shops.
Spring flowers are my favourite – so much bang for your buck! And I like the simplicity of one type of flower at a time in my vases.
I even let myself keep the house in flowers for two months straight!
Pierce county is great as well. I worked as a freelance trainer when I lived in Washington State, and traveled all over–spent a fair amount of time in Tacoma (we used to stay in Gig Harbor and do stuff over on the Peninsula as well) and Olympia, so know the south Sound pretty well. You are in a beautiful area of the country (and world!).
These are gorgeous, especially with the backdrop.
