daffodils



Spring just isn't Spring without daffodils.




When I see daffodils in our local nurseries, then I know it's Spring. 

Their bright and vibrant hue is like sunshine . . . and their trumpet-like centers look as though they're singing, "It's Spring! It's Spring!"




I'm sure you would agree that daffodils (like most flowers) are the most beautiful when seen growing wild in fields.

I think that's why I love seeing daffodils growing in pots or buckets. They tend to look more natural with their uneven heights and tall green blades.




Daffodils are also quite beautiful clustered in bunches. My favorite way to display them is in bud vases and tea cups.




We've been enjoying fresh cut daffodils . . . yellow and WHITE ones . . . since they made their debut a few weeks ago.  One of my favorite photos is the one of the daffodils and the hand-blown brown eggs that my sister gave to me (above). Simple and natural. 

I hope daffodils find their way into your home this Spring.

      I visited your photo page and fell in love with the photos of Machu Picchu and Wayna Picchu. My husband and I hiked to the top of Wayna Picchu in 2008. It was an incredible experience. Your photos are just stunning. So happy you shared them . . . They bring back so many great memories.
