Fragrant Winter Stocks



Chilly grey skies call for adding some beauty
inside the house.


So I popped in to my local flower shop
and selected these stocks
they were a little pricey
but as all the well priced daffs and tulips had gone
I decided to spoil myself!







Winter stocks have the most wonderful
perfume too
it is a treat just walking into the living room!



I'm joining Liz for Fresh Cut Friday August
and


Enjoy your weekend everyone
Take care and
be kind to one another.

Take care and
be kind to one another.

Merci à bientôt

Dear Shane,

Your stocks are so pretty and know how wonderful the fragrance in the house must be,
We have just watched the silver ferns game and they won by one point - wonder did you watch the game? A nail biting time!

Enjoy your weekend
Hugs
Carolyn.

They are such gorgeous flowers, and I can just imagine how beautiful your rooms smell.
Have a wonderful weekend.
PS - When I first saw your title, I thought for a split second it said Fragant Winter SOCKS! :-)

How beautiful, Shane. Flowers make me so happy.

You did a beautiful job of spoiling yourself!

I love their scent! The colors are so pretty, too. Enjoy your weekend!

These are also one of my favourite flowers. Tried to sow and grow them several times in my garden with changing success. The stocks you can buy in the shop are always more beautiful and the scent.........out of another world.....

Beautiful flowers - thanks for sharing them.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

What lovely photos! When I was a little girl we lived somewhere so cold that people grew stocks. I saw some again once on a holiday. They are so pretty.

Elizabeth said...

I love stocks, always so sweet smelling.
( I am sorry...I read the header of your post as 'fragrant Winter socks...)!

Julie said...

One of my all time favourite flowers Shane & always remind me of my grandmother. I can just about reach into the screen & sniff them :-) Just beautiful x0x

Flowers do brighten up a winter-y day!

These are beautiful! Well worth the splurge. It's been a while since I bought stocks but I do remember their beautiful smell

Hello Shane, Such gorgeous colors; I wish I could enjoy the fragrance! As always, spectacular photos.

Fresh flowers like these beauties are so worth it!

Marilyn said...

I love the colors of your stock and can almost imagine the fragrance. This is one I would like in my garden next year. Beautiful!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Shane,
Stock is such a favorite flower and fragrance! Husband Pieter did once grow them inside the greenhouse. It was meant for use during a Procession and it made it almost a heavenly day.
Enjoy yours!
Hugs,
Mariette

P.S. Have left comments at a few parties, hope you got them!:)
