Narcissus♪ (Green Day) 

The other day, I enjoyed strolling in the next city's park, where Narcissus flowers are blooming beautifully. While taking pictures bending down, I could also enjoy their sweet fragrance.  We all are "narcissist" to a certain degree, aren't we  (*^_^*) 
 I didn't know about the myth until I started learning English myself before 30. 

(I do wish to be able to take better pics...)

As that day was my late mother's anniversary of her death, I stopped by her grave and placed some flowers for her. She had been learning flower arrangement and never missed the arranged flower inside of the front door of her house. I'm not learning it; costing a bit(^^;)    At the flower shop, I also bought this "kalanchoe" for our front door. The owner of the shop said this one is a new kind; I have no way of knowing it, haha.  


   I hope you all are having a wonderful week.
   I'll link this post to green day ;   Happy Friday, everyone♪♪♪

What beautiful flowers, my dear friend! It's such a wonderful way to honor your mom's memory, as well. I love kalachoes and they grow well in our climate here. They also have such a profusion of bright color. Thank you for brightening our day!

your photos are beautiful! i always appreciate what you say about my photography, but truly, i let the camera do almost all the work - they make them smarter than us humans. :)

love the daffodils (that's what we commonly call them in the states). and i'd love to have fresh flowers around, too, but they are so expensive. :) hope your new plant flourishes.

Dear Miyako,
Your photos are beautifully done and the flowers are so pretty and make me wish I had a yard full of them to admire. I love to see flower arrangements done by someone who has the skill to arrange them to look like works of art. I have never learned to do this. The ones you have chosen to have near your front door are lovely as are the ones you chose for your mother.
Have a wonderful day my dear little sis. Love from you bs

Hi there dear Miyako. I love that new plant for your front door. What a beautiful colour! The photos of the narcissi are lovely, and really give us hope that spring is just around the corner :) Take care my friend xx

Dear Miyako,

Love your sweet Narcissus flowers and how lovely that you could take in the sweet fragrance and your photos are lovely.
Also how pretty the new plant is you bought for the house.
Nice that you were able to place some flowers on your Mother grave.
Sending love and hugs

I love the narcissis or daffodil plants. I think that Kalanchoe is most unusual. Looks like little bells. Beautiful plant. Weather looks lovely where you are, Miyako. So cold and rainy and very windy here. xo

Wow Miyako san, these narcissus flowers are so pretty! I remember there were narcissus in the garden when I lived in Japan. I don't think I've had kalanchoe ever but they are very pretty, too! It must have been really nice to see your mom's arranged flowers in the house. My mom doesn't do formal flower arrangement but she puts several flowers together nicely and displays them in the house :-)

I have never seen kalanchoe with bell like flowers - those are very pretty. I think narcissus are a sure sign of spring. I love them.

Dearest Miyako,
Lovely tribute to the fragrant Narcissus! They are the first spring bodes to us and we do enjoy them. Narcissus is their latin, or botanical name and daffodils is the common name. You bought nice flowers and for sure you also tended well to the grave of your dear Mother.
Hugs to you dear friend,
Mariette

Since such many narcissus are blooming the air must be saturated with the perfume of them. I like its fragrance.
The flowers of the new kalanchoe are lovely,like a pink lantern.
Have a nice day!

You did a very good job on the photos. Beautiful flowers. We won't have flowers blooming here for a month or so. Blessings and love to you.

Hello Miyako, I love your pretty narcissus flowers. They are one of my favorites and I think they are my birth month flower. The potted flowers are gorgeous and I am sure they look beautiful by your door. Your photos are lovely. I am looking forward to seeing some spring flowers around here. BTW, I also love your header. Have a happy day and weekend ahead.

Hello Miyako

Beautiful flowers
so bright and fresh.

I would love to do flower arranging maybe I will try when the weather gets better and there are more flowers around!

I am sure your Mother would be delighted that you thought of her on her anniversary and brought flowers to her grave. You are a good daughter.

Thank you for linking up with Green Day at Raindrops and Daisies.

Wishing you all things lovely in this new month of March
