Spring Flowers for me



















Is there anything better than a huge bouquet of spring flowers cut directly out of the woods.


Sweetman came through the door this afternoon with this beautiful bouquet and handed it to me with a grin on his face as big as they come. He knows I love flowers and especially those that grow naturally in the wild.


We are blessed to live near the woods with an abundant amount of dog woods that are in full bloom now. I love the dogwood trees. I don't believe I have ever seen a dog wood that is as pink as the one in this bunch. This bunch had white dogwood, purple and double white lilacs, and another little purple flower that looks like dutchman's britches but he said it was from a tree so I don't really know what they are but it sure made my heart swell with the love for this very thoughtful man. These flowers far out do any store bought bouquet by far.. Thank you Sweetman you are a rare find.

We drove out your way on Sunday and were amazed at all the dogwood blooming. I love all those flowers and your bouquet is gorgeous!

You are so right: this bouquet means far more than a store-bought one - and it's beautiful! Our dogwoods here in LA have long been gone, but I love them, too! The deep pink is gorgeous.

The bouquet is gorgeous but the way you photographed it is even more gorgeous. I LOVE your header!

Those are very beautiful. How sweet of your husband to pick them for you. (Pun intended!)

Hi Nancy! Nice to meet you. ;o) And I think you sure do have a SWEETman if he picks you gorgeous flowers like this. What a blessing!

Found your blog through a comment you left on Mari's post....I've scanned down this far and stopped...

It was the bouquet in your header that grabbed my attention and here it is again. I love the "wildness" of it!

I've composed a couple of similar ones out of some pretty good looking artificials that I've gathered from various sources. While I like them, of course they are NOTHING compared to the real thing.

You are blessed to live so near the woods.
