Daffodils are the harbinger of springtime. With blades of grass-green stems and trumpet-like blooms of buttercream-yellow or apricot-hued, these spring beauties are nothing but a delight to have around the house this time of year.
Somehow my days alway’s seem brighter with these lovelies on my desk.
My favorite ways to arrange daffodils
grab a big bunch
leave a few extra flowers for later use (see below)
either use the same color flower or mix different varieties
cut bottom of stems about 1/2″ diagonally
put in a clear vase (yes! clear, so you can see the beautiful deep green stems)
you now have a lovely arrangement that probably took you five minutes to make!
now grab the extra flowers you put aside and get a few apothecary bottles
put one or two flowers in each bottle
place one by your bed-side table or bathroom counter
… because flowers make the mornings just a little bit brighter
Daffodils have hollow stems that contain a sap-like substance that gives the stem its turgidity. When the flowers are cut, the liquid seeps out, and it can shorten the life of other flowers in the vase. It is best to show daffodils on their own or keeping the stems separate, in a small, water-filled plastic bag.
