Look! Spring has arrived! At least in my dining room... these photos were taken in my dining room on March 6th. My sister had cut some apple tree branches from her trees at the end of January and gave me a few branches. I kept them in the cool garage, with the cut ends in about 2" of water for a few weeks and then brought them into the house and put them in a vase of fresh water and set them by the window. Soon, the dining room was filled with beautiful springtime flowers.
