Aren't this just wonderful?! They have been blooming away on my new kitchen counter. My first flowers in the new house! Just breathtaking. Couldn't find a vase...somewhere in the sea of boxes, but used a coffee thermos instead. Makes it look like I did that on purpose. I did place my hand painted swan near the jug. My mom painted this for a birthday many moons ago. Just love swans and love that everytime I see it, it reminds me of her! And with those flowers she brought over I thought it would be a nice centerpiece. And that RED is just stunning in my pale kitchen. It is such a stricking contrast. Enjoy as I have for the past couple days.
