It is such a special treat when a dinner guest brings flowers. These gorgeous white hydrangeas look so beautiful in my living room.
Happy Monday, dear readers!
A couple of weeks ago, I picked up some bunches of anemone flowers at the St. Jacobs Market. They were just gorgeous, and they lasted just about a week. I think they would have lasted longer had I changed the water a bit more regularly.
A week later, Tim picked up some, too. Don’t they look pretty in his photo?

I love the curvy stems, and I love the stark contrast between the white petals and black (or is it very dark purple or dark navy?) centre. The anemone is such an interesting bloom, and I don’t see it too often, which makes me love it even more!
I think white anemones looks absolutely gorgeous on their own, but adding simple greenery around them also works beautifully.
This arrangement from Sullivan Owen is spectacular in my opinion. I adore the inclusion of the roses and seeded eucalyptus.
So, what do you think of the anemone flower? Is it a keeper in your eyes?
I ended last week on the blog with¬†white tulips. This week, I’m sharing five gorgeous photos of white orchid plants. Orchids are such a great floral option¬†because they bloom and rebloom¬†if you take care of them. I have a couple of orchid plants at home and at work, and they’ve rebloomed numerous times. I water them weekly with a bit of water and keep them in sunny spots.¬†When the last bloom has fallen, I trim the¬†stem back¬†about halfway just above a node. I’ve also cut the stem back all the way so that it’s only a few inches tall. I¬†honestly don’t know which option is best, I don’t pay too much attention to it.

¬†Have a wonderful weekend!
Ah – spring flowers are the best, aren’t they? I haven’t regularly bought¬†flowers over the winter, but now that spring is here, I won’t be able to stop! The Kitchener and St. Jacobs markets always have a great selection, and it’s not unusual to see my market bag filled more with¬†flowers than food. Last week, I bought yellow tulips and they’re still looking lovely. Here are five white tulip flower arrangements that I think would be easy to replicate.

Have a happy weekend, everyone.
Life is overwhelming at the moment, and I need a break from blogging this week.
