    And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

    ~William Wordsworth

      Those are beautiful! Tell us more about the photo! It’s snowing here in Chicago so I can’t imagine if those are blooming near you!

      My back yard is a’bloom in daffodils, white and yellow, and even the crocus are coming up. Makes my eyes dance! My mother plants about 50-100 bulbs every year because she knows how to plant things in such a way to make them grow, whereas I do not.

      I like to send Sean outside with a pair of scissors and tell him to clip 5 or 6 daffodils and have him put them in a vase. He takes great care with this task. He feels like he has been given an important job! Tremendous fun. ~ AM

      Daffoldils! I love them all. Flowers. Spring. In Illinois they say we are to get 7-8 inches of snow in mid week. Hope they are wrong. They were about the last storm. I love flowers!

      Ah, ours are still to be seen, tho the little green leaf heads are poking thru the ground. Those are beautiful – tell Sean his job was even more important this time because he brought such sunshine to all of us 🙂

      My beloved gramma loved this little poem, and I can’t see a daffodil without a whole lotta loving memories: it isn’t raining rain to me, it’s raining daffodils, and every dimpled drop I see, wild flowers on the hill (I found a link and there are more words by Robert Loveman, funny she didn’t say the roses verse despite loving them) Thank you for the rush of memories – Happy Valentine’s!

      As a former high school English teacher, you have spoken my language with the poetry of Wordsworth.
      And the pic – glorious!
      Come soon spring.

      Absolutely gorgeous! Our great God has such a wonderful imagination. The designs and colors He used in creating flowers still blows my mind.

      Great photo.
