Decorating with Yellow Spring Flowers

I was going to buy flowers for this week’s party.

Some of these forsythia branches are over 4-feet long.
Forsythia makes a grand statement on the mantel.

But I am fortunate that both our daffodils and forsythia are in bloom.

Most of the daffodils were closed when I brought them into the house.

I brought the daffodils inside a few days in advance hoping they would bloom by Friday.

I’ve love grand-scale arrangements especially when they’re free. (The red car ties into our party theme.)
The daffodils blossomed.

They didn’t disappoint.

Do you turn your clocks ahead tonight in your part of the world?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Your flowers are lovely. I hope the party went well. Thanks for the clock reminder. I know I’ll remember and forget many more times today.

    1. Party was a huge hit. The birthday girl was totally shocked (in a good way) by the guests as they arrived. Rarely have I pulled off a better bombshell. Because we have oodles of daffodils in the yard I know I can always have an abundance of flowers when they’re blooming. More is better. Jo

  2. Your daffs and forsythia are ahead of ours (and they’re lovely). Daffs are in the stores but are just thinking about starting to bloom here. No sign of forsythia yet. We’ve had a record-wet and cold winter.

  3. Changing the clocks in the spring is the worst! I hate losing that hour. It makes me especially mad when people say that we gain an hour of sunlight. We don’t; it’s just at a different time. Your flowers are lovely, though!
