Ranunculus love...


Yes - I am a HUGE ranunculus fan. So much so that when after three days of walking past a beautiful florist packed with them in Paris {open till after ten every night...oohlala!} - I could resist no more, relented, and bought a little tiny pressed glass vase from the Conran shop in St. Germain {along with the cute teak tray!} and went for a bunch of the pink sort.....oh how cheerful they were! I am trying to find some here - but no luck yet. I guess spring comes much later to Scotland than it does to France. The little metal 'A''s came from the antique market....I'll show more of the group soon....
I am really disappointed - that book I ordered was cancelled right at the last minute this evening. Apparently they sell elsewhere too {ie..have the same thing listed in two places!!} and someone beat me to it. I was so, so looking forward to it as well. :(
Popped up a little exhibition review over on whip-up ...
Can't believe it's Thursday already. Sheesh. Roll on le weekend, I say.

I want to wear those flowers in my hair. They are luscious.

And as a fellow 'a' name, I love the metal versions you've got.

oh ranunculus! I adore them (http://kat-heyes.blogspot.com/2007/02/weekend.html) - I've been putting them with white tulips or daffodils and they remind me of a pre raphelite lily pond - try it, it works! I'm much further south than you but they are in all the flower shops here - since feb as you can see from my post. have you got a waitrose? - i dont usually buy flowers from them as I like to support my local flower shop but I couldnt resist the other day as they had white ones with dark red tips! good luck ranunculus hunting kx
