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.

Still following,



  1. Oh how beautiful and sweet. :) I haven't ever noticed ranunculus until this year. Saw them in huge pots at the Dallas Arboretum and I was stunned by their beauty. We go to an appointment tomorrow right by Trader Joe's. Might try to stop by there.

  2. So pretty. I love seeing fresh spring flowers again.

  3. I love ranunculus too, can't pronounce it or spell it, but I love them!

  5. I so enjoy visiting your blog...it's so peaceful! The flowers are gorgeous :-)

  6. If I have ever seen them, I didn't know what they were called. I'm still not sure how to pronounce it, either. I think they look sort of paper-y to me which is lovely.

    And I am particularly fond of the pop of red!

  7. These flowers are my favorite I think (next to Peonies) and hubby was so sweet to remember the name of them.

    Nothing like fresh flowers to brighten a room--love this!

  8. these flower arrangements are beautiful!

  9. Hi Elizabeth,

    I just bought three little pots of ranunculus from Home Depot a couple of weeks ago in 2 pink colors and a white with lavender. I love them! And they were small, so cost less than $3.00 each. I think they're only annuals, though, as they aren't cold-hearty, but for the price of a bouquet I have three charming flower plants. I popped them into little galvanized flower pots I picked up at a yard sale. They're on my front porch (so I can bring them inside if we get more cold weather.) I love Spring, and that our Creator has given us such variety! Have a lovely week.

  10. I love all white bouquets too, of course! Good training! My Mister has even picked up my magazines for me a time or two! Haha! Happy WW!

  11. Your ranunculus are so pretty and so sweet of hubby to bring them to you. I have been seeing them for a few years and just adore them.

  12. I love all white bouquets also! Very pretty.

  13. Your ranoculous are so pretty. I have never seen real ones, only silk, and I have some in yellow and love them. Such a pretty flower............
    Very sweet of your hubby to bring them to you as well, mine does that every so often too............great to have wonderful hubbies huh!!
