Neighbourhood Bouquet – Daffodil, Poppy and Burgundy Tulips

It was a lovely April afternoon. Sunny, mid-60’s, and a few lone daffodils, paper whites and narcissus were still in bloom, so why not add them to my bouquet before they’re gone for good? The tulips have hit their prime, too, so two deep burgundy ones made it in, too.

Although they require careful trimming of their razor-sharp thorns, I had to use the maroon and yellow barberry sprigs. I picked four orange poppies, but by the time I got them home most of their petals had fallen off. I still had to add one in, even without all their petals.
