Rob’s favorite flower is the daffodil. He likes the fact that the blooming of daffodils indicate we are getting closer to warmer weather and longer daylight.
We do not do gardening. Any flowers, trees or landscape one may find in our yard is due to the previous owner. Sadly, we purchased this house nearly 10yrs ago, and the previous owner has not returned to maintain her hard work. Which brings me to the reason why I like daffodils: they are robust flowers. (Azaleas, too, for that matter.) Regardless of our brown thumbs, we are greeted by several areas of daffodils in late winter/early spring.
Based on the flower, the seasons are starting to change. I hope you find a ‘spring’ in your step today.

My mother loved daffodils…I do, too. They always remind me of her.
Very sweet, K8. Memories of your Mom are filling our yard. I’ll notice the flowers with an added smile from now on.
Imagine a previous owner not keeping up the yard 🙂 and yes it is wonderful the daffodil is so hearty!
Honestly, Chris! What, did she think just because she sold the house she was giving up the responsibility of keeping up the yard?! 🙂
We kept in touch with her for years, and I was always afraid she would pop by unannounced.The backyard looks far different now, than when she owned the house. Two dogs and two boys have destroyed the beauty she created. I look back at the pictures and feel so sad. But – I love our place, and I love the fact that our boys can explore without limits. (The dogs, too.)
Can you believe it? Ground Hog’s Day is only a week away? Lovely daffodils.
I cannot believe it, Georgette. As cliche as it sounds, time goes faster with each passing year.
They’re so hopeful looking! I did notice the day lasting a wee bit longer last night … ahh. But I woke to a blizzard howling around us, the old house creaking and groaning, and a grey light blanketing us as the snow falls. Tucked into the office, in my flannel jams with radiant heater going .. your sunshiney flowers seem as far away as the moon!
MJ, you need to copy and paste your comment and create a post based on it. The howling winds of the blizzard, the house creaking and groaning. What a wonderful comment. I read it and feel I am in your house experiencing it all with you. Though I’d be tucked in an extra bed, flannel PJs and an electric blanket I brought with me. Oh, I’d prefer a window seat, too. So I can watch the howling winds.
Trust me … daffodils are just around the corner for you, too.
I KNEW it was almost spring! 🙂 Thanks for the proof.
You are welcome. Keep the faith – Spring is near. (Well, it’s closer than it was in October.)
Daffodils already? Such a welcome sight!
Sadly, I think we still have a couple of more months before I spy them around here.
Have a great weekend!
Hopefully, Nancy, Mr. Groundhog will tell you Spring is around the corner.
Have a nice weekend, too! Thanks for visiting.
Daffodils are a gorgeous flower, they always give a garden a lovely lift with their beautiful bright colour.
They do indeed, Mags. Thank you for visiting.
That dose of spring is appreciated 🙂
Glad you liked it, Bella. My son picked a few of the flowers for me today – he said he wanted my desk to be bright and cheery.
Now I like daffodils too! Mostly because I don’t have a green thumb…I wonder if I can get them to grow here.
See! I know this ‘no green thumb’ you speak of … I am willing to bet that daffodils could make it in Alaska. For certain. Go ahead – try it.
Daffys already? Wow. You’re way ahead of us. It’ll be months before ours poke their brave little faces toward the sun. They are my favorite flower, too.
Let me know when yours start to pop out of the grown, Linda. I hope it is sooner than you expect. A surprise splash of yellow would be nice, eh?
Yeah! Hints of warmer sunshine. : )
Woo hoo! We like warmer! Not Hot. Just warmer.
I’m so not a gardener that there are only a hand-full of flowers I can even identify properly…
these sure do look bright and cheerful, though, Ms. D!
Very spring-like indeed!
I wonder if I could identify even a handful, SIG. I recognize daffodils, because Rob loves that flower.
Happy Spring! (A little early.)
