Prettiness and Good Advice

There is something about Daffodils that just make me smile.  To me they and Daisies are the happiest flowers  - must be their funny faces.

Our grocery is selling cut ones and I couldn't help myself, even though they didn't look so promising at first.




A jar with fresh water and some warm, sunny air have done the trick over several days time.


A bright burst of my favorite color to keep us smiling and remembering the beauty in life.




I had two great suggestions from favorite fellow-bloggers on my last post.


Thank you Chania at   RAZMATAZ  for suggesting the "knee-high" cover for my cast.  Much cooler and lighter than the Ace bandages and easily replaced with a fresh one.  And also thanks to Heather at Life is a Garden and These are My Colours for suggesting I use the eraser end of a pencil to ease the frustration of typing lately.  Please check these two talented and creative ladies out sometime, they have lost of goodness to share.

Last Thought:  

Seeing this was one of those "only in California" moments.



I may have to investigate further - how strange that they have a sign on the highway - a way to see if anyone will actually stop by?

I'm late posting in the week, but I hope we've all gotten over the hump nicely!

I love Daffodils but didn't see any at the grocery store yesterday. Your display is so cute! Just love the Ball jars.
The pencil is a great idea. I will check your friends out.

I hope you are healing fast and will be back to your "regular" self very soon! I love your daffodils. Did you get them at Trader Joe's? I buy all of my flowers, and actually some of my orchid plants there. You can't beat the price. I forgot to get my daffodils last time I was there. Hopefully you will be back to yourself very soon!!

Take care my friend!

I just found your blog through another blog and joined it. We live in a town Hopkinton, Mass.
I hope you stop by my join blog. It is nice to have someone that lives near us.

I LOVE your daffodils in your blue jars. They are beautiful and also screams Springtime is coming. I can't wait to get outside and work in my gardens.

Nice to met you.

Blog buddies always give the best advice. Usually someone has faced the same thing and can help! I like the eraser idea...looks like you're doing fine! And the flowers are beautiful. It looks like every bloom opened! Sweet hugs!

I will check out your blog suggestions too!

Oh...and the Daffodils... beautiful! Don't you love them. Watching them bloom does remind you to reflect on the beauty of life for sure.

I hope your hand heals quickly for you! Frustrating I know. I love the daf's and what you did with them. How long will they stay fresh and bloomed in the jar? Gorgeous. Loving your animals. So cute. Hugs. Tammy

Ann,
The flowers are indeed pretty!
I also love to see the daffodils come out in the grocery stores, and flower shops, they announce so perfectly that spring is here, (or where I live at least spring is around the corner.) :)
It's good to see you are finding a way to blog, and what a good idea to use the eraser of a pencil to type with.
