A Year of Flowers

“I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.”

That's a quote from Emma Goldman, written around 1930 and it pretty much sums up my feelings when it comes to a beautiful home--what could be nicer than fresh, fragrant flowers on the table for a holiday, Shabbat or just because?

During the past year I featured seasonal flowers in a monthly series called "Flowers on First". I posted these during the first week of each month and always used readily available flowers. Here is a look back at the monthly flowers featured in 2012...
Sitting here in Connecticut with 6 inches of fresh snow on the ground, the flowers bring back some warm memories of the past year. Here's to a great 2013!


  1. that's a great warm way to round up a year! thanks for sharing!

  2. What a lovely way to sum up the year! Flowers can warm up a heart and bring about a smile upon the face. Happy New Year...May the coming year bless you and your loved ones with everything that your hearts desire together with loads of laughter and joy!
