April Love: My Favorite Flowers

Today I’m continuing on with Susannah Conway’s April Love.

Today’s prompt: My Favorite Flowers

For a long time, my favorite flowers were tulips. Yellow especially. I was really disappointed when I realized that I would not be able to carry tulips in our wedding. Turns out when it is June in New England there just aren’t any tulips available as much as you would like them. I also am partial to blue hydrangeas. I love arriving in Nantucket to see hydrangeas around every corner and in front of nearly every house. When we put our house on the market a few years ago, I filled our house with hydrangeas and I think they brought us luck.

Right now though, daffodils are my hands down favorite. our Trader Joe’s started carrying daffodils a few weeks ago and I can’t get enough of them. When I buy them, they are small tight buds that look like them will come to nothing and in a day or two they are full, gorgeous flowers.

Despite all the robins that are playing on our front yard, spring is having a hard time settling this year.

For now, my store bought yellow daffodils sitting on my kitchen window sill are helping me believe that one day, spring will be here in earnest.

    I have never seen daffodils for sale in a store! I wish they had them down here, mine didn’t do well this year (they’re my husband’s favorite). I’m still a tulip girl, but I didn’t get to have them in my wedding either (a November bride).

      Do you have Trader Joes? That’s where I found these! They really do make me awfully happy during these long grey months!
