In a vase on Monday: daffodils


I found this china bowl on Saturday at the weekly Stuttgart flohmarkt (flea market). It has a transferware pattern and two stripes of orange lusterware glaze. The mark on the bottom says “made in USSR.” It cost me €7, and I am very pleased with myself about it.


I added two little pots of forced miniature daffodils from the grocery store.

In a vase on Monday: amaryllis and berries

Cut amaryllis flowers from the grocery store and nice orange berries from the ugly euonymus in the front yard.

I like orange and pink at Christmas.

The amaryllis started out long-stemmed — although not so long as these — but I cut them down as they started to fade a little after a week.
