The fact that the Hubs remembered the name ranunculus when he stopped at Trader Joe's
to get me some flowers is amazingly sweet.
I had mentioned that I liked them and would like to find some.
They are a soft stemmed flower, rather like a tulip, so the flowers eventually droop.
The bouquets aren't as long lasting as a hardy bunch of mums or carnations.
They don't really have a fragrance either.
But, they make up for it with their showy fullness, rather like a peony.
I love the simplicity of an all white bouquet.
But then again, a little pop of red is quite lovely, too.
