Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


I found a clear sign of spring today! Hoop Petticoat daffodils with deep yellow trumpet-shaped flowers brightening up this grey day. Yay!

  4. Thank you for the cheery daffodils, Calee! March always makes me think of these yellow blooms. Mine are still closed up – they’ll awaken soon. ( I check for first one daily…)

  5. Love the shot and I’m happy for you that you were able to find flowers to photograph. I’m sure that there will be lots more flower photos soon. Spring is almost here for some of us.

    • Thanks so much, Mike! I’m so happy the spring and the spring flowers are coming. Last night it snowed again, but only a little and when I checked the flowers this morning they were still fine. 🙂

  11. Spring is so special. It is anticipation and hope all rolled into the moment you start to see the first plants poke up through the ground, the first flowers that break into bloom. You captured this beautifully.

    • Thanks so much, Charlie! It’s exciting every year to wait for the first ones to show up, watch them grow and then bloom. 🙂
