I love this time of year when the daffodils are a sign that Spring is on it’s way. I also saw so many crocus growing when on my daily trips to the hospital this week. I didn’t get the chance to photograph them but they were lovely to see. What I do have is a couple of photos of flowers from my home, daffodils and lilies.
Here are my supermarket daffodils which have brightened up my sideboard all week. I’ve a fresh bunch arriving today. I remember once, when I ordered daffodils in the weekly shop, Graham thought they were spring onions and put them in the fridge. It took me a while to realise they were missing, but when I found them I put them in water and they still bloomed nicely. So, yes, you can refrigerate daffodils!
Next up are the lilies that came in my Valentines flowers. They were the last to come into bloom but they looked so pretty. Sadly I had to move them out of the living room because they are poisonous for cats. I don’t blame Graham for buying them as he didn’t know. Even a small amount of digested lily can cause kidney damage in cats. I don’t think my cats would eat the flowers, I’ve never seen them even climb on my sideboard, but the pollen can be poisonous too and it falls off and becomes airborne.
So there you have my two photos this week, and I’ve given you two lessons as well. Daffodils can be refrigerated and Lilies are poisonous to cats!
Linking up with the lovely Rachel.
