Flower Friday: Daffodil and Unicorn Garden

I discovered Flower Friday last year while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pictures and information. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!


Today’s flower is the Daffodil!

This is an early perennial and one of the first flowers we see in spring where I live.

Other names for this plant are: jonquil, narcissus, and daffadowndilly.

I’m not going to lie, this is one of my least favorite flowers. I guess its because yellow isn’t one of my favorite colors, but I’ve grown to appreciate these because they’re the first flowers in spring and they really are pretty. We have many just growing throughout the woods and they require little care.

Unicorn Garden

At Christmas, one of my children received this cute little unicorn garden set which included a few figures like a castle, a mushroom, butterfly, and unicorns. It came with a plastic bowl we really weren’t excited to use, so we decided to get a pot to and incorporate some real plants.

We broke the front of the pot (which didn’t go well because it’s a 16-inch pot and very thick), but we ended up using some epoxy to fix it up a bit. Then we just used the two large broken pieces to create levels so we could incorporate a staircase.

The plants were very cheap at Wal-Mart, and we used re-purposed wood from an old barn that’s over 100 years old for the staircase.

It was a lot of fun and we hope the plants will do well over time.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Flower Friday! Have a great weekend everyone! ❤

    I don’t love daffodils either but I love when they pop out cause that’s when you know Spring is near! Your daffodil pictures are very pretty and that unicorn garden is gorgeous! Should turn unicorn garden making into a business cause you’re good at it. 😉 Have a good weekend! Hopefully it’s sunny. 🙂 ❤

    1. True! They are a lovely start to spring. Thanks for your kind words! I’d love to have a business making unicorn gardens. 😂 That would be awesome. 🦄🦄🦄 We broke the pot in too many pieces so I’d probably need a ton of practice haha. You can’t tell until you look at the back though. 🤣 Have a great weekend! 💖💜💖

  3. Wow, I always love the Flower Friday posts! I am jealous of your free growing daffodils. We don’t have any in my yard, but we do have tulips I planted (which are much fussier!). And I LOVE the unicorn garden..the idea of it, the plants you chose, the way you arranged it, and the staircase- amazing! You are such a talented family.

    Guess what- I now have a blog! Eek! It will be easier for to keep up with you now I think!

      I’m so excited! I just checked out your blog and followed too. Thanks for letting me know! 👍👍👍

      Oh, tulips….I do have a sort of sad story to tell about those. They have always been a fave though and so beautiful. I’ll be sharing it soon! ❤💙❤😁 Take care and chat later. 😊

    1. Thanks, Carla! That’s so sweet of you. I’ll probably do an update down the road. I do have a feeling we’ll eventually have to part out the plants with growth. Hope you are doing well. ❤

    I love daffodils and tulips but they leave too soon. The pics are beautiful. The Unicorn Garden is such a unique idea. To think that the stairs are made out of wood that is over 100 years old is amazing. I love the concept. 💕
