Ooh, they are all so gorgeous!! I think my favorite is your own, Ann. I think the green bottle is what grabs me...that and the yellow are my parents' favorite colors.

I love all of them! It's such a gorgeous promise of spring. I had some daffodils last week from the Cancer society girls, and now I'm wishing that I'd painted them before they expired...
