Flowers in the House ...

... for Valentine's Day. 

Another raw, gray day in a string of raw, gray days ... to be followed by at least three more raw, gray days.  

Thank goodness for Jane's challenge to bring in some flowers!

Keeping it simple and going with favorites.  How can you beat tulips and iris?  I can't.  It will still be weeks before much life returns to these parts, but what are a good reminder that it will happen. 

Hope you will visit Jane and her merry band of flower posters.  I'll have a pot of tea on for you, and am sure someone else will have scones, or muffins, or some nice treat.

And, happy Valentine's Day to all.  Hope you are with someone special!

  1. I am now officially done with winter. I've been looking at the long term forecast for warmer weather. It has to be there somewhere.

  8. Oh Webb, this is just perfect. have just returned home from too much time in the cold waiting for buses and freezing in the metro.

    Tulips and iris are the perfect antidote to such a day.

    Thank you.

  12. Thanks for you lovely comment about the orchids. My mother did not grow them, but she would have approved of them since they require so little care. Wish my tulips would poke up their little green shoots. Some things in the garden are starting to show a little green...one tiny little hellebore shoot! Your arrangement makes me smile!

  15. My Ma was Scottish, so tea is a necessity to me-especially when I lived in states that shivered through winter. I am on a Chai kick now, but any black tea will work.
