pink ranunculus . . .



This post is a great example of why I'm behind on sharing our daughters' candy themed birthday with you. I get side-tracked with posts like this one. Instead of finishing one of the many, many posts that I already have in my que, I get excited to share simple, beautiful things with you, like these flowers.




I love flowers. Love them. Love. Love. Love. 

I buy fresh cut flowers every week, and have since I was in my mid-twenties when I visited our local Farmer's Market every Saturday for fresh produce . . . and, of course, flowers. It was always a special treat after a long, stressful week.

With Spring knocking on our door, the market is full of gorgeous flowers . . . so I might have bought a few more than normal this week. Oh boy, wait til you see the white & creme colored daffodils I bought. Sigh. Dreamy.

Somehow I talked myself into 'taking a break' from making party decorations (it's our youngest son's birthday this weekend), so that I could take photos of the pink ranunculus I bought yesterday.

They are so pretty, especially when the morning and afternoon light shine on them. Have you treated  yourself to fresh cut flowers lately? I hope so!

Ok, back to making decorations. 

Have a beautiful day! Enjoy!












LET'S STAY in touch!

    1. Hi Suzan! So happy you came by!
      Your comment made me laugh out loud :0) I've learned that fresh flowers can brighten up anything, so maybe you should buy a few extra bouquets every week, just for those unfinished areas :0)
      Have a beautiful day!

  3. Oh your flowers are photography are amazing! I had never heard about ranunculus until last year when some bloggers posted them. When I finally found them at the grocery store, I fell in love. Can't wait to find some this year.

    Maybe you should share photography tips. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Stacey!
      So happy you enjoyed my pink ranunculus. Have you ever seen a mixed color bouquet of them? They're utterly stunning! So when you find them, buy a few colors, like yellow, orange, and pink. You will be amazed at their collective beauty. I hope you're able to find some this Spring and Summer!
      And for photography tips . . . Well, I'm self-taught and can't even name the parts of my camera. I pay attention to lighting, as I think natural light gives the absolute BEST photographs. Again, thanks for coming by! Hope you keep in touch.
      Have a great day,
      Suzanne

  7. I love them! I have some faux pink ones, they are very good, but nothing like the real thing! We are so flower starved in cold Long Island, can't wait to see the forsythias which are the first to bloom.

  8. Gorgeous! I first learned about Ranunculus when I worked at a florist. I thought it was an odd name but I've never forgotten it! One of my most favorite flowers! Can't wait for warmer weather here to go to our local farm markets!

  23. Ranunculus are so beautiful! And I can't believe it when people say that pink and green don't go together, pink flowers always look lovely with their green leaves!
