I've been hoping and praying for warmer weather and this week has been AWESOME. Highs in the 70's. Now I officially have spring fever! I took a little trip outside today to see if any of my daffodils were poking out and much to my surprise they are popping up all over the place :)
I LOVE DAFFODILS!!! I am not sure why, I don't particularly like the color yellow, but I have always loved the flower. I believe it is because it is one of the first signs of Spring and I am NOT a fan of Winter. I also think it is because you see them everywhere, on the side of road, old barns, and at old home sites. I know I shouldn't pick them all and allow others to enjoy their beauty but I pick all that I can and take vases full to work and place them all around my house in the Spring. I don't pick the ones in my yard :) I have to make emergency road side stops! And I frantically pick them in a hurry like I am committing a crime...I think I learned a Girl Scout motto once about leaving things as they are in nature and I have always wanted to pick flowers, I can't leave them.
These were a Valentines gift from my Mema, they are blooming wide open now filling my kitchen with Spring.....What is your favorite flower? Favorite thing about Spring?
