Indoor flowers on the last Monday of the month
There are not a lot of flowers around the house yet, so I like to keep them outdoors until more come along. Then, when I bring a few indoors, the yard will not miss the picked ones. Today I have a simple elegant pair of the Poet Daffodils (Narcissus poeticus) staring out the kitchen window.
I hope my vases do not bring back bad memories of your high school chemistry class. These were cast-aways from one of my projects - a renovation of science labs at a Washington DC high school. The bottles stored who-knows-what chemicals, but now have a new purpose in life. I like them because of the narrow necks perfectly suited at the right support height for holding one or two stems.
These daffodils are also tied to chemistry. As noted in a previous post [posted 18.04.2011] the flowers are commercially grown for their oil used by perfume labs in many modern French fragrances. So there's a connection, n'est-ce pas?
