The Sweetness of Broken Flowers

The flowers are really doing well this spring.  In fact the double daffodils have flowers that are too large for their stems.  I thought by giving them extra nutrients with compost last fall they would be stronger.  It did help the flowers, there are more than ever, but the stems are still really fragile.  After cutting the flowers with the stems that were bent the most I was able to tie the rest up with string.

The up-side to this was that I could save the broken ones to enjoy inside.  The flower heads are resting on the top edge of the vase.  They're so lush and beautiful!  I had enough to share with a neighbor and we are both enjoying their delicate sweet scent.

Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem or saying a prayer.  Anne Morrow Lindbergh
