This is the first post in a Series called "Getting Ready for Spring".  Spring is coming and the daffodils are out.  These bright cheery flowers always remind us of Easter.  This is a very simple arrangement made with a simple flower, but the clean lines, the curve in the vase and curve made with the flowers make this a modern arrangement.  It is easy, but you do need to get the shape that you will need for the flowers and then cut the stems to achieve that shape.  If you have your vase, rocks and daffodils then you are ready to roll.  Let's go.
