Oh,

Market Flowers, 2014

Oh, the joy of returning to good health. I've been down for two days. Today I believe I am on the other side. I am thankful for the cute guy who lives with me. He buys flowers and fruit and vegetables at the market, and makes sure there is pale bland food for me. Hopefully, I'll be returning to spice and color in the near future. Oh, to be out of bed. Oh, to make my own breakfast. Oh, to feel well enough to appreciate flowers and sunshine.

More flowers at Jane's.

  1. P.S. Does anyone know what type of flower we have here beside our tulips?

  2. Jane will know what they are. Am tempted to say dianthus, but am not sure. Sorry you've been feeling "poorly" - hope you're really better soon.

    1. Thanks, Nancy. All of those kind people sharing flowers did brighten my day. Now I need to make some of your pan-seared potato gnocchi with parsnips. http://nancyvienneau.com/blog/recipes/pan-seared-potato-gnocchi-with-parsnips/

    1. You are so right, Shae. I feel the slightest bit better, get so thrilled, and move too quickly. I need to learn from the turtle.

  10. I'll jump on the Sweet William bandwagon but I believe the Latin name is dianthus so I'll jump on that one too. Glad to hear you are feeling better, my husband and a lot of the people I work with were down for the count last week, I'm wearing garlic around my neck.

  11. Sorry you've been under the weather-I'm glad someone cute is taking care of you. Sweet flowers!

  12. Dianthus: proper name. Sweet William: nickname.

    Either way they're the sweetest, longest lasting flowers around.

    So sorry to hear you've been down for the count, and there I was running around eating Vietnamese food and buying even more cat food.

    Take good care and it's nice when caregivers come in cute.

  19. So happy for you that you are on the other side of whatever you had that kept you in bed for two days. We just had our second round of stomach flu and are also eating bland, colourless food...
