{Daffodils Bunnies & Hearts}

Spring is such a lovely season with flowers blooming.
Don't you love having such a vase indoors with fragrant daffodils?
From our German 'son and daughter-in-law' we did receive some lovely Easter bunnies and hearts...
Erika always is giving her heart to us in a most caring way.
We were lucky that both of them with their two children did visit us in our Vacation Home Vakantiewoning Pardoes, while we stayed in The Netherlands for Mom's 90th Birthday and Mom & Dad's 65th Wedding Anniversary.
 Yes, they drove up to us, all the way from the beautiful Eifel in Germany and gifted Mom & Dad with a beautiful handled willow basket, filled with edible goodies from their region.
Now I have turned a different fragrant white daffodil facing the camera...
Don't you like these double ones better than the single one in the first photo?
Those are the cutest little bunnies with the lace scarf buttoned around their neck.
Daffodils are inside a French Baccarat Crystal vase.

Very glossy Mr. & Mrs Bunny...
So glad they traveled well inside our suitcases.

Don't you love them too?

      Those daffodils were such a welcome sign of spring trying hard to come through. We will have another spell of frost tomorrow night... But such lovely fragrant flowers bring joy indoors!

  5. Daffodils are indeed such lovely happy flowers - but sadly I am allergic to them. So I have to admire them from afar.
    Happy Wednesday Mariette!

      Such are the pleasures of life... and the fragrant daffodils really make it most heavenly all together.
      Fleur-de-Lys does have a special meaning indeed, for you living in Japan it is hard for knowing all the Royal emblems of Europe but this is so typical French and I've always loved it.
      Hugs to you,
      Mariette

      Ja natürlich ist das ganze zusammen schön. Der Geschenkkorb war wirklich sehr beliebt und mein Papa beklagte sich darüber dass die Ware im Korb keine gute Haltbarkeit hatte... Scherzend da er es mit soviel Freude alles aufgegessen hat und meine Mutter hat es auch gekostet. Also war es sehr gut gewahlt worden!

      Jazeker; van beide zijden! Mooie herinnering aan onze speciale tijd in Nederland.
      Ja die dubbele en geurende narcissen vind je niet zo makkelijk bij de bloemisten. Wij hebben uitsluitend hele oude, heirloom variëteiten gekozen. Geen moderne die overal in omloop zijn maar speciaal gekweekte antieke soorten. Dat vinden we juist zo mooi en het heeft een hele eigen charme.
      Ook een heel fijn weekend en liefs!

      Sweet bunnies with lovely daffodils indeed! You will get to see our Fleur-de-Lys fabric in my next post; long overdue!
      Oh, the trip was lovely as there was no winter at all in The Netherlands and it was great to see everyone even though if you are with 51 together there is not much time for visiting with all during a coffee/tee time, followed by a dinner... But most important was that Mom & Dad were so happy to be surrounded by their loved ones!
      Hugs and lovely day to you (yours probably is winding down...).

      From our German 'son and daughter-in-law' we indeed received these lovely Easter bunnies and hearts. Erika is very caring and giving, she literally gives her heart to others.
      Indeed they did come long distance n order to gift Mom & Dad with the beautiful handled willow basket filled with gourmet food from their region.
      Too bad that daffodils inside our Baccarat crystal vase never last that long, especially not when the airconditioning is still heating during nights with frost... Their petals are like paper, very frail and they dry out real fast.
      Always such a joy to unpack our suitcases with beautiful gifts like this!
      Hugs and admiration to you always.

    So cute little bunnies. They will fit nicely for Easter.
    I guess the flowers is typical for the Netherlands?
    I remember the tulips and daffodils from our visit on Texel, so beautiful!
    Hope you've got the money now. I added some coins for your bank fee.
    The small cardigan was very cute. Love it! (the link you showed me)
    I wish you both a nice weekend

    1. Dearest Astrid,
      Those bunnies are cute and yes, flower bulbs are typically Dutch! We however did search for only heirloom and highly fragrant varieties to plant on our property. We've planted early, mid and late blooming varieties as well but since the weather has been off so badly we can hardly tell... We were so glad for having at least some to fill our vase!
      Thank you, I just did log in to our bank account and yes it is there. I got behind with Internet as we just did switch to DishNET via satelite for our High Speed Internet as the other one got 1,000 times disconnected over the last month. I lost so much while typing things and I had to copy each comment before hitting the publish button. Now I can just rely on the system which is great!
      Oh, that miniature knitting I had to share with you; what a patience to knit that tiny... There are artistic people around and you are one of them too!
      Happy weekend to both of you; we just had our last frost during the night. Feels great.

  23. lieve Mariette ,

    ik dacht dat ik mijn had aangemeld bij je ,,maar dat had ik dus niet .
    Daarom zag ik geen nieuwe post op mijn Dashbord ...sory ,sory ,sory .
    ik heb me nu wel aangemeld hoor ...dus mis ik geen post meer ..
    Mooie Narcissen ik wist niet dat er dubbelen bestonden ..
    Wat een lieve konijntjes en hartjes..en ben blij dat ze goed aangekomen zijn..
    daar heb ik ook altijd moeite me spullen uit n.l mee na huis nemen ,daarom ga ik graag met de auto past lekker veel in..maar een lange reis 2500 klm .
    En het mandje zag er ook mooi en lekker uit ..

    heel veel liefs uit griekenland

      Maakt niet uit hoor, zelf was ik ook achter geraakt vanwege onze vervanging van Internet server naar een nieuwe via de sateliet via een schotel.
      Langzaam weer bijkomen met alles!
      Ja zeker zijn er allerlei dubbele variaties van narcissen, dit zijn allemaal heirlooms die wij hebben en geurende. Dus hele oude variëteiten maar mooi zijn ze.
      Ja, die konijntjes en hartjes zijn erg mooi en we zijn altijd zó opgelucht als er niets kapot is gegaan in de koffers. Met de auto is het veiliger en veel makkelijker. Maar ja, 2500 km is zeker niet níks. Wij reden van Limburg naar Cornuda, TV bij Venetië ook altijd 1,200 km en dat hebben we heel wat keren gedaan en ook wel met twee auto's. Als immigrant is het nooit gemakkelijk om tussen twee werelden te funktioneren en wij kúnnen de 8,500 km niet met de auto. Géén keus!
      Ja, dat mandje zat vol met allerlei lekkers dat mijn Ouders heel blij en lekker opgepeuzeld hebben.
      Liefs en groetjes uit Georgia/USA.

      Yeah, for us it was hard to come home from a very mild and far advanced spring weather in The Netherlands, to more frost and cold here in Georgia. We had severe damage from a tornado in our subdivision, our home and garden were fine though. But now we have had our last frost and spring is here!
      Hope you are soon feeling better!
