*it's daffodil time!

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

These showed up just a few days ago.. quite a beautiful surprise. This spring will be like gift giving/opening time for me.  All that lies beneath the ground will soon burst forth and makes its grand entrance; I can hardly wait!!


  1. I am SO jealous, Lynnie! Mine are peeping their stems through the ground, but it will be a while before I see such beautiful sights as you have shared! I'm excited for you through this spring/summer as things unfold for you there in your yard and property! :-)

  2. Like Dianna, it's still winter here and I am jealous too!! I can't wait to be in your neck of the woods! I will NOT miss the winters here. :-)


I enjoy your comments. Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts!
