Valentine's Day

I did some shopping the other day, stocking up for our weekend with the granddaughters. And I came upon a display of flowers for Valentine's Day. I looked and admired, but thought they wouldn't last in the car until I got home. The temp was very cold, I had several stops to make, and I was meeting friends for supper and a long gab session. So I passed them by. I got a few aisles away and I remembered I had my camera in the car. I parked my cart, got my camera and took pictures so I could enjoy them that way. I got a few funny looks and an employee stopped and watched until I was done. No telling what she thought I was up to! Seeing these in the store gives me hope that spring can't be far away. I hope they brighten your day, too.
So, these pictures of a promised coming of spring are my Valentine gift to you. Enjoy, and dream of Spring!

You found more pinks!!! Great. I can just imagine the looks you got. They probably will post a sign now 'NO PHOTOS'. tee hee... They do look wonderful in the stores, especially now.

I hope you have a great day...

What a great idea to go get your camera. I may try that today!
Thanks for the color, it brightens the whole day up.

Lisa, you are right about the "no photos". You might use one of their design ideas!

Beth, since starting my blog and reading so many of the others with all the beautiful photos, I have started taking my camera with me everywhere. That way if a photo op presents itself, I am ready!

I love those colors! I always keep my camera in my purse and I don't mind at all taking pictures of flowers in the stores.

Hi Beckie
Lovely colourful display.
Just to let you know you won the caption competition. If you email me at I will glad to send you the six packets of seeds.
I am sure you will be pleased with them, particularly cerinthe as you simply pop the seed in the ground when the weather warms up.
Happy gardening.
