Day 983's sign of Spring
I promise I'm not trying to brag to those of you still in winter, but the daffodils are blooming here in central Alabama. They are the first real sign that Spring is on its way in (though we had our only measurable snow while they were in bloom last year).
These guys are blooming around my office, which reminds me, I need to start taking lunch out on the patio before the temps get unbearably warm!
If daisies are the friendliest flower (name that movie!), don't you think daffodils are the happiest?
This has me wishing I'd planted about eight bajillion of them. Maybe next year.
Our own daffodils are little behind. I was starting to get worried, as they came to our house in an unusual way: my dad dug them out of a hillside on his Tennessee farm and I separated them and planted them last spring. But they seem to be doing fine, and I can't wait until they bloom.
