Jennifer said...

I miss daffodils so! Our garden in Tacoma was filled with daffodils and tulips. The deer plucked the heads off all of my tulips but left the daffodils alone. There must be a lesson there too, right? ;-)

They truly know how to deck out in their Sunday best! I can't wait to see ours in another 6 wks or so!

Wonderful lessons! I'm still waiting for the snowdrops; the daffs won't show their faces for quite some time yet... :)

eb said...

yes - so poetic - and I only wish that we would see them before Mother's Day - that's when we get the daffy lessons -

thanks so

I can't believe you have daffodils already! It's only February! Our ground is still frozen and it was snowing a little on the way to work this morning. I'm jealous, but your lovely images give me something to look forward to.
