Pretty Flowers

While recuperating I've received so many pretty flowers.
 This Fuchsia was a birthday gift - received the day before I went to the hospital.  It is growing and blooming on the deck and I can see it from my chair in the living room.  The hummingbirds love it, but I've not been able to catch them as they flit about.
I also received a lovely pot of clumping yellow bamboo - I'll get a photo of it when it is planted in the yard.
 So many pretties!
 Green carnations!
 Red carnations - the scent was wonderful!

 Lots of daffodil bouquets.
 Such beautiful Gladiolas!
 More daffodils! I love this photo - some reflections in the window from indoors, and the deck outdoors appears to be right next to the window - it is actually about 8 or 9 feet away.

 We  completely missed the daffodils and tulips in Skagit County this year, but our daughter brought me this lovely narcissus bouquet.
 The scent was fabulous!

 And a bouquet of yellow tulips alongside the narcissus bouquet.

Lovely flowers, they are all beautiful gifts. The Fuchsia is one of my favorites. I hope all is well. Enjoy your day and weekend!

So many pretty flowers for you to enjoy, JoAnn. Flowers sitting in front of a window make beautiful reflections, don't they; they double the joy. I hope you are feeling better, dear lady.

Welcome back! I'm so glad you're up to doing an occasional blog, and blog visit. What a tough, long haul it's been for you!

I love all those spring bouquets. I'm glad you were surrounded by such beautiful flowers even if you couldn't get out to see them growing in the valley. I hope it won't be long before you're able to get out onto your deck, if only to listen to the birds.

Wowee! Such pretty flowers. Always a pleasure when we are remembered with pretties. I don't know what was wrong with you but I am glad you are better and everyday getting stronger.
