    Absolutely gorgeous flowers! Oh how true too, small can be very beautiful! I still love it when my youngest (now a teenager!) picks me dandelions or other ubiquitous flowers 🙂

      Dandelions symbolize good things to come. They are the bravest of little suns coming up when the danger of frost is still in the air. They are promise that warm weather is coming & you can eat their greens! That is a gift from Mother Nature…on their way out, they turn into a firework frozen in time waiting for a breeze or a child to make a wish from it. Crazy, huh? Not a weed to me. I still hold the same feelings for them as i did as a child. Thank you, Peggy, for your comment. ~amy

  2. I love the bottom arrangement with the yellow flowers, soft shades of yellow, so tender, so elegant. Thanks for the useful lesson.

      The yellow flower is a Ranunculus. My favorite. I don’t think they like Alabama weather much. They seem to love the cold spring & now that its gotten humid, they are failing. I hope to get them into the gardens before they croak. Thank you very much, as always, Eva! ~amy

    I love tiny flower arrangements, always makes me think of my kids bringing in fistfuls of flowers (mostly violets and dandelions) with 1 -2 inch stems.. We used rocks glasses (4 oz), shot glasses, and a couple of little ceramic vases found at yard sales.

      Exactly! I don’t like large arrangements, I think they get in the way. & you are right, small arrangements brings to mind my own childhood…giving my mom Indian Paintbrushes, Yellow buttercups & dandelions. So meaningful. ~amy
