Daffodils

I took these pictures six days ago And for the last six days I have been trying to come up with words to describe how much I adore daffodils. I still can't do it justice.

Daffodils bring hope that spring will come, even this year.

These daffodils were a gift from a good friend of my mom. I'll claim her as my friend too, since she surprised me with a big box of daffodil bulbs.
Thanks M.G., you can't imagine how much I am enjoying these!

  1. More enchanting images; thank you.

    I remember planting daffodils; your brother and I gathered pounds of bulbs from roadsides. I think he once suffered from poison ivy twined amongst the bulbs.

    For oft, when on my couch I lie,
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.

    William Wordsworth
