Daffodowndilly


She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead."
-- A.A. Milne

  2. Oh, pretty! Here in Oregon it got really warm in February and my daffodils thought spring was here and they went ahead and bloomed. And now it's nearly April and cold and rainy and my daffodils are dead and gone. My tulips are cheering me up though.

  3. That was lovely. And I can finally look at your pictures and not be overwhelmed with jealousy (as we'll be having 80 degree temps here today). Finally! :)

  5. My favorite flowers and one of the few blossoms that don't grow here in paradise because it never gets cold enough for the bulbs to take hold in the fall. See! Benefits to cold, brown winters!

    Thanks for sharing some pics of them and for the sunny words from Pooh's Papa. My favorite daffodil words, however, will always be those in Wordsworth's poem.

    Happy springing!

    PS--I'm still reading my way through L's birth story. I love that you wrote it all down in chapters for us. Love a good birth story!
