Bouquet!

Our dining room table has recently been decorated with a bright small bouquet of Daffodils and birch twigs.  Mrs. F.G. was trimming the White Birch tree a little, and picked four of the Daffodils that grow below it.  She tucked some birch twigs into the vase as well as the flowers, for a touch of whimsy.

Low and behold the birch twigs have come out with small green leaves.

They've even developed a couple of catkins.  We keep wondering if they will sprout roots, but I'm not sure this built in effort to complete their cycle of life is going to last much longer.

  1. The rounded glass bowl with a handle , on a beautiful silver plate, the perfect setting for the flowers and twigs. . Greenery makes a display special, I see our local florist has blue gum leaves, toi toi branches, some the pale cream feathers, some are dyed, and some branches that are about 3 feet tall.

  6. Dandy bouquet -- with two different kinds of flowers. Can't imagine they'll set roots without using a rooting hormone, but ...

  7. Nice floral touch but you could plant the rooted twigs in a Planter over the winter then plant the growths outside next spring.
    Be Safe and Enjoy what nature gives you.

    It's about time.

  10. I have rooted some pussy willow branches which I honestly don't want but I hate to kill plants. Maybe I could plant them on the neighbors.
