Fickle Spring Bouquet

Spring can be fickle.  When you expect beautiful weather, sometimes it isn't beautiful.  A little over a month ago we had beautiful weather.  But, today it is cold and wet.  Normally at this time of year we are able to plant a little garden.  I have some new plants but I am not enjoying them.  So, I decided to put a little vase of my favorite new flowers on my window ledge above my kitchen sink.  

I put my little bouquet with some candle holders I found at TJ Maxx.  
My new favorite flowers are daisies and double white impatients.  
There are also some pansies and coreopsis that hasn't bloomed that I used for the green foliage.
I  have a tabletop also.  Just a peak at the same candle holders in what will be my Tablescape Thursday post this week.  The lovely blue hour shot that I wouldn't have known about if it weren't for Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch who so wonderfully shares her great tips.  
I will be linking this to Cielo's Show Off Your Cottage Monday at The House in The Roses.
I will also link to Marty's Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.

Be a sweetie,
