Irish Spring!

Fresh flowers in the foyer to welcome the holiday and Spring!

Hydrangeas, mums and a few specimens that I don't know their names!

I usually buy one type of flower in one color, by the bunch, but sometimes a little splurge by the stem is so much fun!
The florist told me these soft green mounded stems are in the mum family and they'll last 2 weeks!
 And, they remind me of a grassy knoll, so I could I resist?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!


  1. What a beautiful bouquet...perfect for St. Paddy's Day. Enjoy your weekend R!

  2. Just a beautiful piece of work there! I love it and it just right for Spring and St. Paddy's Day. I have to tell you when I read Irish Spring the first thing I thought of was the fresh, clean, bracing smell of that soap! xo Diana

  3. I believe the one that you are not sure of ...are called...Belles Of Ireland...
    My husband is Irish...

    Cheers....raise your Guinness to St Patrick!!!!
