I accidentally uprooted these tiny daffodils---They seemed to fit just right in the tiny pitcher-- the entire still life is about 5 inches tall.

The little pitcher with that soft green works so well with these little beauties.
Seeing the bulbs is lovely.
Nice one Jenn.

They are tiny. It looks like the roots grew to a size too big to get back out of the pitcher. :-(

I love the tiny daffodils (the wind does not knock them down quite so easily) very dainty. A good composition.

Accidentally Wink of course!! They are the perfect accompaniment for that pitcher. The green glass is very complementary as well. Lovely image, Jennn.

"Accidentally on purpose?"Wink
Love the inclusion of the bulbs in the water, far more interesting than more run-of-the-mill cut flowers.

It's the green that goes well the glass the flowers all in all nicely done Jenn.

Oh... such a beauty.
I missed so many beautiful images Jenn, I have to come back, when I feel stronger to sit for hours here. I obviously should have stayed in bed instead of painting Martina's flat. Well... one learns out of mistakes, so they say.
