Cheerfulness Daffodils from the Garden

I know this is odd…but I don’t really cut a lot of the flowers in my yard to bring inside. I do cut the hydrangeas and roses because I have lots of them but I don’t really do too many other flowers. I like to enjoy them in their natural setting I guess. Anyway….I have TONS of daffodils and tulips this year so I actually picked some for my dining room!

 I’m guessing it’s because of the cold cold winter. They finally had a proper chilling period.

These are Cheerfulness Daffodils. I got the bulbs on ebay about 8-9 years ago because I thought the name was so cute! They’re really pretty – they’re a creamy color with  a bit of yellow in the center and are nicely fragrant.

They’re in blue Ball jars in this pretty yellow plant carrier that I got at Burlington Coat Factory. I hadn’t been in there in years but I needed a light weight jacket and went in there to look (didn’t find a jacket but I found this). It sort of reminds me of TJMaxx except more clothes and baby stuff.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

  1. What a great carrier, Manuela! Glad you brought some of your lovely daffodils in the house to enjoy. At our previous home I never had enough to just cut and bring in so I usually left them outside to enjoy, too.

  2. So pretty and springy! We are having a nice rainy weekend here in Dallas and that’s quite rare. :)

  3. Now I am really glad that you are enjoying the daffodils and tulips. They are indeed cheerful!

  4. Very pretty daffodils! I like those double ones. I don’t bring many flowers indoors either. I know they won’t last as long after I pick them.

  5. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers – love daffodils. Really like the carrier. Have not been to B’s in some time, but need to go, as heaviest Winter coat got damaged when had water damage in January.:(
    Have a great week.

  6. So pretty!

    It’s great to see fresh flowers from the garden! Can’t wait for that here this year!

  7. What a sweet way to display the beautiful flowers from your garden:) Love that display case! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

    How pretty! I love your new plant container.

  9. I don’t cut my flowers in the garden either. I just cannot make myself do it when flowers are so inexpensive to buy here in Holland. I have tulips in several vases as I bought a bouquet of 20 for only $3.

    Your container with the jars is so pretty!

    I have tried often to comment and never seem to be able to. I am trying once again. Hope it does work this time.

    Hugs from Holland,

  10. Cute plant carrier! I haven’t been in a BCF in ages, I didn’t know they had things like this!

  11. I’ve always loved flowers in Ball jars – so pretty. And I’m totally in love with that wooden carrier! At first I thought it was vintage. I haven’t been into Burlington Coat Factory in many years. The closest one is about 40 min. away.

  12. After this long winter daffodils are cheerful indeed! :) This is a very pretty variety…and such a nice display for them! :)

  13. Pretty flowers, I like their name too. We certainly need all the cheerfulness in this world we can get.

    Your carrier is great, and I know you will find multiple cute ways to use it.

  14. I not only love the flowers, I love the way you presented them. I love to bring flowers from the outside in. Actually, I just love flowers in the house, period.

  15. How cheerful! We have tons of bulbs – the prior owner was a landscaper. Can’t wait until our are in bloom!

    I’ve never been to Burlington, but looks like you found a great score!

    Enjoy your week!

  16. DAFFODILS, my favorite flower of all time, these look so pretty with the yellow and the red in the back round!!! Love them in the mason jars. I am like you, I rarely cut my plants outside in the other house. I am hoping to plant Hydrangeas somewhere at the new house if we have room. PINNED!!! Love the trays on the wall to.

  17. I was up at Granny’s old place one day last week getting some iris to transplant here. I kept looking about the yard, thinking something was missing. I realized the other day that I’ve rarely seen a daffodil blooming in that yard. She planted every other sort of perennial and old fashioned flower but never a daffodil and no word of explanation why not. Hmmmm…

    I love them myself, they make me smile every time I look at them. I mean to add to mine this year come autumn.
