Jane's Flowers in the House Monday. It's a magical time, with seven of the 10 or so varieties of narcissus planted here in our yard blooming at once. We've been enjoying jar after jar of these, my most favorite flowers, for the last two weeks! And I'm glad to see from other contributors that I'm not the only one getting a good daffodil fix :). Thanks for hosting, Jane!

Hope everyone had a lovely St. Valentine's Day! Before I share some photos from yesterday, I wanted to post these of a second prototype for that same jasmine centric wedding. In addition to the ranunculus and anemones from Yorba Linda, dusty miller from Watsonville, callas from Moss Landing, and teasel from Napa, this more silvery and less green version features eucalyptus from Petaluma and wild plum twigs from Napa.

It's a bit early yet for jasmine flowers, but their pretty pink buds are beginning to develop like a pink froth on hedges, walls, fences, and screens all around the Bay Area. This centerpiece, a prototype for a jasmine centric wedding later this Spring, is my first arrangement of the year to use a few sprigs of the awesome vine, along with ranunculus and anemones from Yorba Linda, dusty miller from Watsonville, parrot tulips from Oregon, callas from Moss Landing, and teasel from Napa. Can't wait for the big jasmine bloom to come!
