Friday Fives.....

2. Which is your favorite flower?  What colors do you like?
3. Do you have a favorite vase or vessel you like to use for your flowers?
4. Do you have someone who gives you flowers regularly?

Enjoy this video about arranging flowers....I thought it had some really good ideas.  I have a GIANT ball jar that I might just make a terrarium in after having watched this video......great idea!  I've wondered what to do with that jar for a long time!!!
Happy Mother's Day to each of you!

Oh well... I JUST arranged four bouquets yesterday from a bucket full of flowers I got.

Blogged about it yesterday in fact. Wish you had posted that video sooner!

Always a day late and a dollar short...

1.I LOVE cut flowers. It is probably the ONE frivolous thing that this tightwad enjoys.

2. I basically like anything that blooms. I'm not drawn to expensive blooms or arrangements. I'm as happy with a daisy as a rose. I even like weeds.

3. I like variety, but it's usually the flowers that I like more than the container.

4. My husband brings me flowers...often

5. Nope. I have a brown thumb. How pathetic is that?

I love fresh flowers...most any, but especially roses, tulips, and daisies! ...well, orchids, too! I have a couple of pitchers and a vase that was given to us when we got married..I alternate between them. Usually it is my beloved husband, Doug who gives me flowers...but sometimes I buy them for myself. We grow a few flowers...my husband has a much greener thumb than I do.
Hugs,
andrea
