Daffodil Day

In Australia today its Cancer Council's Daffodil Day. The proceeds from the sale of 'live' daffodils and other merchandise is used for research, education and support services. Such a worthy cause, and I'm especially happy to support any charity that gives me something to brighten my day (and my home) in return for my donation!!

These are just so beautiful! Sunny yellow and orange - actually two of the 'hot' colours for the coming season. If only they would last for a few months .......

You can see my silk mini lanterns in the backdrop in yellow and orange from Lanternshop.

Here is Patsy sort of admiring the flowers before I put them in water. They are looking just a little sad here, probably something to do with the fact its over 30 degrees again today in Brisbane!
Have a lovely weekend.

It's a lovely colour isn't it and the lanterns are so close to the daffodil in colour.
