First Daffodil

When Yolanda of Bliss planted her magical carpet of Spring bulbs last autumn, I was inspired to plant some new daffodil bulbs. Tulips and many other tasty plants get chomped by deer. The daffodils in the front get most sun (when it shines, of course ;)), and the ones in the back have surfaced at last. Today I noticed that the one in the lead that I've been keeping an eye on has started to open. The photo has been dabbled with a bit of 'painting'.

Edited to add:

Here's a photo I took during sunset on March 19 of the golden-lit root part of a tree washed up on shore:

  2. Very pretty pics, as always. Reading back one post, I'm glad you got a second opinion, and I hope the antibiotics help soon.

  5. Thanks Adrian ~ I have been dreaming of spring and daffodils for so long it seems, that 'dreamy' fits my thoughts.

    Thanks Hilary ~ It's taking awhile, but I'm hoping to see improvement this weekend! In the meantime I haven't gone too far afield with my camera. There's still spring in the front garden though :)

    Hi Juliet ~ Thanks for your comment ~ in total agreement that the daffodils in bloom is wonderful.
    Here's hoping for knee improvement soon!

    Hi Flighty ~ Thanks ~ Yes, your daffodils bloomed earlier, with the help of more sunshine which was very welcome, I'm sure. Hope you still have some coming out.

  6. I shall have to replant tete a tete daffodils in the Autumn. Many of mine this year have come up blind. Love the ducks taking off. You must have had a quick reaction to have captured the moment. x
