Beyond Fluttery Daffodils

Flower Friday brings these amazing fluttery daffodils from the Pike Place Market. I must admit, I am not the biggest fan when it comes to cut yellow daffodils. I love seeing them in the ground, but when cut, I have never found a way to make them last or cluster them where they don’t look smooshed together. Until I found this variety. Changed my mind completely. These almost have a peony vibe going on, and that is never a bad thing. Add the variation of colors in a single bloom, well, I am now a daffodil convert. So good!

A lovely Mother’s Day week-end to you all. X, T



The Market Daffodils Have Arrived 

Looking ‘up’ has many advantages. Yesterday on my Saturday morning Market stroll before opening up the shop, it was all about the daffodils. Flower box after flower box of the cheerful yellow blooms. The boxes planted high above many of the storefronts and buildings, creating one very large nod to upcoming Spring. Yesterday was really only the beginning, as those flower boxes with be overflowing in the coming weeks with more & more blooms as even more start to open and do their dance. 



Spring Is In The Air



Dainty Daffodils

Yellow Daffodil Happiness

20140316-092829.jpg Spring is so darn close I feel like I can almost touch it. Yesterday the Market had Spring fever, and the stalls are starting to brim with a profusion of buds. There is just something about a daffodil that signifies to me the change of season.

20140316-093044.jpg There are so many magical qualities to the Pike Place Market, and one of the sweetest ones is how the rooftops of many of the buildings are planted with daffodils at this time of year. Your eye just treated to a visual feast of yellow as the flowers sway about in the breeze. So unbelievably pretty. I bought a small bunch of fluttery double daffodils for the shop. It is always so fun to see the smiles that occur when someone sees a simple vase of them mixed into a display. Yellow daffodil happiness indeed.




Dandy Daffodils

20130228-070715.jpg I was in need of fresh flowers for home yesterday so I did a quick run through the Market stalls for a bit of inspiration. This solo bucket of daffodils being a sure sign that Spring is really coming. The sweet, sweet delicate yellow petals a welcome sight for the eyes and the soul.
