This blog has gone too long without some bright blooms to liven up the space.  I recently had two dozen roses delivered to my mom.  New York has been having a really hard winter and I thought she (and probably my dad and grandma too) needed some cheering up. 
It was also a belated Valentine's Day present and Chinese New Year celebratory gift, but really does anyone ever need a reason to give or receive flowers?

My grandma - she declared these the most beautiful flowers she has ever seen.

 My mom - doesn't she look so chic in her glasses?

Also, last week, with the hustle and bustle of the Chinese New Year, I splurged on a spray of pink stargazer lilies.  At the time they looked like nothing much, with just a few buds on long leafy stems.  But now, wow!


  1. Oh my goodness your mom is beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of her before! Love the flowers and love the grandma too :).

    1. aww thanks! she will be so happy and flattered to hear that :-)
