I needed a flower fix.

Flower Season on the Farm does not start until sometime in May but I needed a flower fix. I must say the spring color in the garden is a bit lacking,  but I was able to find a few things in bloom.  I was inspired by this blog.  

Narcissus can be a little challenging to design with because they do not play nice with other flowers.  Narcissus when cut ooze a sap that is toxic to other flowers.  Here's the trick.  Cut them all different lengths and let sit 4-6 hours in a water by themselves to callus over the end.  DO NOT RE-CUT.  Just place into design and enjoy.
