Paperwhite Daffodils

Paperwhite ThumbnailWe’ve just finished taking the Christmas decorations down. It feels good to have them all packed away safely until next year but there is a distinct lack of greenery indoors now. I like to have something beautiful to look at on my kitchen windowsill. Flowers make me happy.
A bunch of Paperwhite Daffodils and a pot of fresh green Basil are just the ticket. 

Paperwhites & Basil

I love colour. That’s true… but throughout the short dark days of January a little vase of something fresh and light is enough to lift my spirits. Besides if you look closely there’s a touch of golden yellow inside every flower.

I’m not the only gardener who loves cut flowers for the house.

Thanks for reading.  Sending you my best wishes for a very Happy New Year.         Gillian 🙂

  1. That vase is perfect for these, isn’t it Gillian – and doesn’t the basil look even more gorgeous a shade of green against the white? Thanks for sharing this 🙂


    1. Thanks for your lovely comment Cathy. I confess that I do have rather a lot of vases of all shapes and sizes… I don’t spend a lot on them and often paint them to suit a particular room or bunch of flowers. (Unglazed ceramic vases are best for painting)


      1. This is now the same for me, Gillian, as I had about 2 before I began the meme (plus a few which were bought for decorative purposes) – since then they have come mostly from car boots and I do have paint in mind for something too…)
