I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck

I bought these flowers. I don't know what they're called in English, do you?

Some of the flowers left from yesterday’s birthday. They are lighting up every room of our home in that special way that only the flowers from one’s beloved ones can do. In a couple of days, however, all the bouquets will be gone, so I’ve photographed them to make it last a little longer.

    Those are ranunculus! Not a very pretty name, but a lovely flower.

      Thank you, Erin! They’re called ranunkel in Swedish, but I wasn’t sure about the translation. Buttercup was the closest I got:)

        A little random but when I have difficulty translating something really specific, I look up the article in my original language on Wikipedia, then on the left there is where to select other languages- I click English and there it is! I hope that made sense :) Very pretty flowers!

          Melissa, I do that too!!! But this time when I looked up the Swedish ranunkel , the English version was about buttercups! And I know it’s not really a buttercup:)

    I’m really missing filling my house with beautiful flowers! But I told myself that until it’s decorated to a point where I feel happy, I won’t be bringing any flowers in… so for now I’ll content myself with your pictures :)
