Yellow Ranunculus


As I was paying for our groceries at the grocery store yesterday, off in the distance I heard someone yelling quite frantically, "Wait, wait, wait!"

Lo and behold it was Hubby. As he got closer, I could see that he was grasping two bunches of beautiful yellow ranunculus to his chest.

Thrusting the flowers at the cashier, he turned to me with exasperated relief and said, "I can't believe I almost forgot the flowers!"

I think I'm remembering this story correctly...


Note: After reading several comments, I should clarify that I was totally kidding in my account of who played which roles in our flower purchase.  ; ) Although I think Hubby enjoys pretty flowers, I don't think the day will ever come (bless his heart) that he will initiate their purchase!  ; )

  4. Yes, most certainly, they needed to be ticked off the grocery list didn't they? Just like the white ones :)

  11. Before I knew anthing about gardening, it was your yellow ranunculus I thought I would plant and have blooming all year.

    Hindsight is hilarious.

    Also thought I could have lupines & delphinium.

    Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

  13. Your husband is definately a keeper! My husband just looks at flowers (when I make him) at the store and always says they aren't on the list. What a sweet guy you have and he chose the flowers well too. They are beautiful!

  14. Oh my gosh, your comments had me laughing this morning as I realized how falsely I've portrayed my husband! I was completely kidding, it was I who wanted to buy the flowers...as always. Buying flowers (bless his heart) is just not on his radar. xoxo

  16. I just happened by your blog today and I love it.

    The hubs and I just moved to the country last August, and we are also living in what was once a farmhouse. I'll be back to find more inspiration here. I find that pace of our lives has slowed down in the most delicious way.

  19. Trina,

    I'm so jealous! They are beautiful! I have been searching all of the grocery stores in my area and have found NONE of these flowers. Don't they just look like Spring?
    Ahh :)

  20. Ranunculas are so beautiful, altho the bulbs look shriveled up. You have a honey of a husband.

    p.s. We live near Carlsbad Flower Fields. You would love those, I know.

  21. How funny! I just posted last night about my husband NOT bringing me flowers - but salvaged roadside "junk" instead -and how much I love it! Nope, no flowers from that guy - but he still know that fastest route MY heart!
    Beautiful photo!

  23. LOL, my husband has finally learned the flower lesson–he brings them home regularly now. Do not give up hope...

  24. How sweet. My hubby loves gardening and flowers too, although I need to introduce him to ranunculus. They are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Such a cute story... so he really did that or truthfully was it you>?

  26. Lolol I absolutely LOVE your wit!
    My beloved 1st motherinlaw ( may she rest I peace) had a very similar sense of humor. She would get the cutest twinkle in her eye when she would say witty things.

    Something tells me that you might have been known to twinkle too!

    Btw those flowers are spectacular. Your grocery store flowers are drop dead gorgeous!!!

    In Him,
    Grace

  27. I love the humor of your story here. But I admire most the flower. The color is very alive. Excellent photography too.

  28. It's good to know my hubby is not the only one. I have ranunculus blooming in my garden. I was so excited to see to see them blooming after all the rain. I thought when I told him for sure he would feel the same, but all I got was "That's nice." Still I can't wait to paint them.

  29. Love your sense of humor! And your lovely flowers. Kit

  30. Ranunculus make me weak in the knees!

  31. That is just SO funny - and the flowers are beautiful. The trick is finding a way of really getting them to buy them for you and making them think that it's THEIR idea... (and I don't mean just for birthdays, anniversaries and 'sorry' days!) x

  33. The flowers are beautiful and the story behind the purchase made me laugh :) My husband would never think of buying flowers "just because" either!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Those flowers are amazingly beautiful; just LOVE ranunculus, especially yellow.
    Your husband is a good man; hope you tell him frequently; hope he tells you, you're a good woman. All too soon it's nothing but memories.

  35. SO gorgeous... I don't think I've ever seen them for sale in bouquets!

  36. I love ranunculus, too, and I never could have spelled it without your help! I don't see them much where we live, in Ohio. Wonder if they can grow here or is it a different zone? I love your blog and have added you to my Meaningful Blogs list on my brand new blog!

  37. People are easy to fool ;) I knew you were kidding, it made me laugh! How beautiful those flowers are.
