Spring Vases

Spring daffodils from our property. There’s various daffodil bulbs in parts of our section, established by previous owners. Late yesterday I picked the best into a bucket and put them in vases before going to bed. I’m not big into bringing flowers inside but bad weather was forecast hence the ‘harvesting’. An unexpected bonus.. I’ve discovered some are scented and I’ve very much enjoyed the random wafts of floral fragrance.

Here’s a more complete view. A few days ago I asked Nigel to put a hook in the kitchen wall for the lizard; it’d been in the lounge while I decided where it should go. It’s designed in such a way that the tail and one back foot don’t rest against the wall thereby leaving a shadow. 🙂

  1. The flowers are nice, but I love the lizard. I have a small keyholder formed to resemble four cats on a fence. Their tails also are free, ready to receive any keys that might be hung there.

    1. I love the lizard too – reminds me of the geckos that would hide in the outdoor store in my parents’ garden in Spain – I used to try to play peek-a-boo with them, hehe! And the daffodils are a lovely sign of spring. 🙂

        1. It was fun to try to open the door quickly enough to see one clinging to the wall inside. For some reason, it was a very frequent perching-place!
