My Daffodils...

I don't usually cut many of my daffodils and bring them inside.
I like leaving them out in the gardens for everyone in the neighborhood to enjoy.
I do bring a few indoors, but once they are cut and put into a vase,
they don't seem to last as long.

Last Thursday, before the first snow, I brought in two perfect daffodils,
so I could enjoy them at my desk.
I'm not sure what I was thinking, I should have cut all of them,
as they really suffered during Friday's snow.

Sunday, the hubs went out and cut the rest for me...
so many were injured and would not survive. 


But I got one big vase full that were strong enough to survive the storm.
Here's hoping my tulips will be o.k.

  1. I love daffodils in a big way. Years ago, I lived on Daffodil Crescent.🌻

    Your floral photos are very pretty.

  2. Morning, Debbie! oh my---your flowers are JUST GORGEOUS! Love those! Thanks for the sweet comments---I am so glad you enjoyed the post about the big old pink house. It was alot of research, true---but I do so enjoy doing it! I can stay immersed in history for hours at a time and just love it! LOL I hated to see that big old house torn down...so much family history there. Sigh....What is your weather doing there and how cold is it???

  6. I find myself on the fence with cutting or not cutting. I love to see them when I pull up but then again I love them in the house. What I pretty much do with my flowers is, if there are a lot, I will take some inside. But recently I started doing something for myself, I visit Kroger and buy their marked down flowers. I got some PURPLE ones two weeks ago, daisy's that had been made purple with color, and they still look great. So that pretty much gives me the flowers I want in the house and I keep mine outside!

  8. It happens every year. Just as my Daffs bloom, on comes a big, heavy snow. So far, only my Crocus have bloomed and are now peeking up through the 2" of snow we got. I find that cut Daffodils last a lot longer in the vase then my (cut) Tulips ever do.

    I hope the snow isn't as bad as the weathermen are saying.

  17. Aw spring. I used to have this unjustified thing against daffodils, but I'm over it now. They're okay after all.

  18. Those are some gorgeous pictures, Debbie. I love daffodils. They are so cheery they make me smile. Maybe spring will be here soon and we all can enjoy all the beautiful flowers then.

  19. I am SO envious. My favorite flower and I don't ever get to see them anymore. Too hot here. Have I told you this already? Maybe about 50 times every spring? Sorry. I hope some of your spring flowers survive -- I live to experience the season through blogs from 'up north' where spring is spring and different from winter.

  21. I never deal with flowers much personally as they are often too fragile

  22. They look beautiful in your vase, such a shame all this last cold had to put an end to the beautiful spring flowers, glad you will be able to enjoy them in your home for the next couple of days!

  23. They are beautiful in a vase like that, but I understand your reason for not cutting them. I personally prefer to enjoy most of my flowers outside.
