This Week's Flowers

"When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other." -Chinese Proverb

This bouquet is a true source of comfort and inspiration on yet another cold, snowy day. The lilac smells sweet and the anemones are so cheerful with their black faces in the middle. It reminds me of polka dots.
Outside the birds are crowding around the bird food; the blackbirds, the hawfinch, and ofcourse the little bluetits. No sign of the group of goldfinch that used to come here, so I thought they may have migrated elsewhere. But today on our walk I saw five of them up in a tree top. Wonder what they're eating instead of my sunflower seeds?
