Flowers in the House



It is a gloriously gorgeous sunshiney day - makes everything happier.  Flowers and sunshine, can't ask for much more.



Tulips are grown commercially in our area. They grow them for the bulbs, so as soon as the flowers start to show, the flowers are cut off and we are the lucky ones, we get buy buy huge bouquets of them this time of year.









Roses are not grown here commercially, but such a pretty bouquets even smells of spring time.


One of my favorites - Carnations - the scent is heavenly.
  
And Daffodils - grown commercially here on thousands or acres, like the tulips - give us bouquets all spring.



And who can resist those loved bouquets of Gladiolas at the grocery store - not me.  They make me glad!

Finally ordered your book :) ACTUALLY I ordered two : I am going to use one in a blog anniversary giveaway at the end of may and at first I thought I'll read one and pass it on. But I love memoirs and most likely will NOT want to pass it on, lol...selfish as I am. :)

So hopefully it is okay with you that one of the items I will use to celebrate at the end of May is one of your books ...I have a few other bloggers stuff that I have ordered or will order for this and wanted a nice variety. Your book should be a nice gift for someone as long as you are ok with that
