Despite the lingering chill, things are finally looking up.


Delayed gratification, however, is not one of my strengths.


As an editor, styling shoots for magazines, I'm always on the lookout for unusual vessels that might elevate even the most ordinary blooms. In a Chinoiserie transferware sugar pot from an antique mall in Ohio, I made a simple arrangement of grocery store daffodils, photographed by our newest collaborator in residence, Babs Perkins. Their stems are secured with crumpled chicken wire beneath. Happy Monday, everyone!
