In The House: March Flower Power

Like any good hostess, I spent a good chunk of Sunday preparing for  Monday's Flowers In The House.  Unfortunately I spent it in the garden.  So while one flower bed is clean and ready for spring, our house is in  complete disarray.
Luckily I had to take my pictures after dark .  Thus no one should be distracted from the poppies by the dust in the dining room.



Hopefully you won't be so dazzled by the light reflecting in the glass jar of snowdrops from our garden, you won't remember whose idea this originally was. 


And the Oscar goes to "cropping".   This magic tool allows you to drink in the beauty of the bedside vase of sweet peas, without seeing the unmade bed  and what might even be a pile of laundry lurking about.


Now I am off to visit again with the mysterious Mr. Linky.  I have invited him to join us today so we can leap about from house to house, oohing and ahhing  over one another's blooms and rooms with no fear of bad weather or flat tires.

Looking forward to seeing old friends and new.  Flowers from the garden and flowers from your local florist.  Flowers in the house.

  21. I see we are both in a poppies frame of mind. I've always loved them, the crepe paper like flowers, the tiny little hairs on the winding stems

  27. Sweetpeas and Iceland poppies are close to my childhood heart, when I learned to love flowers. My mom grew both, and we'd pick the poppies in huge bunches and singe their stems over candles.

  28. I made the deadline by 46 minutes. Is there a participants' enclosure I could go into now to mingle and make small-talk, maybe have a small white wine?

  36. I'm a day late (story of my life) and I posted flowers outside, as I currently do not have time to get any inside the house. So sad, right? It's been frustrating leaving the house in the dark and then coming back in the dark, especially now that we have such pretty weather!

  42. Also a very big fan of cropping. Saves on a lot of tasks that one really doesn't want to do. Great work here, delighted to have found you. Thank you very much Ms. Urban Stems.
