My two favorite flowers are peonies and tulips, so come Spring I can't help splurging a little when they finally show up at the farmer's market. The peonies I bought last week (in a dashing shade of crimson) are still bright and blooming almost seven days later. I'm a notorious black thumb, so while I'd love to have greenery in my apartment at all times of the year, the sad fact is that most greenery doesn't make it very long in my company. So cut flowers, in their fleeting beauty, are my perfect companion. Here are few lovely Spring bouquets to inspire your kitchen and dining table decor: What's your favorite Spring flower? Do you cut flowers from your own yard, or purchase at the market? Do you have a favorite flower arrangement?
