Color 4 You

I was desperate to "touch and sniff" some pretty plants today.  Its been freezing here for several days and everything is cold, dark and dreary.

I headed to the local florists.  The smells and colors were heavenly.

Here is some color to brighten YOUR day:

I was so much more energized after I left the florists.       Better than coffee!!

I wonder if it was the colors or the smells?

Spring can't get here fast enough for me!



  1. Love the colors...and I can imagine the smells! Thanks for a taste of SPRING!

  2. Oh, those were just gorgeous!! I got a gift certificate to a local florist for Christmas. I buy 1 flower with greens and they last about 10-14 days, if you use the powder packet included in the water.

    I went the other day and they were selling gorgeous $20 cream and pink poinsettias for $1!! I got 2 plus a flowering house plant and 2 other house plants.

    Here I have to wait for my real color/scent fix for the Smith College Bulb Show the first week of March. Now that is a real fest!

  3. "Animal Instinct" has been included in this weeks Sites To See. I hope this helps to attract many new visitors here.

  4. My snapdragons are blooming profusely in my winter garden right now. I love their early morning fragrance! In the world of mini-carnations, the peppermint ones are very fragrant, and I always buy a bunch at the store. Flowers in one's house is a true delight!!!

  5. snowy, rainy, dreary here too. GREAT O POST! :)

  6. thank you for the gorgeous colours! i love snow and white, but a hint of heat is always appreciated :3

  7. I need to go now and buy some flowers for the middle of our table...

  8. I love the colours! Lovely and great O post!


  9. Bright colors for a black and white season

  10. Oh how lovely spring will be here soon

  11. Even though I'm not an octopus (octopi?) I thought the orange flowers were nifty.

    And the pink, purple, white and yellow ones, too!

    Thanks for linking.
