Spring Cheer

IMG_4599Spring cheer comes in the form of golden daffodils from the market. Our yard is still covered in snow, so it’ll be a while yet before there are narcissus in bloom here. Just getting in the mood!

    Oh, how lovely! Our daffys are up now and seemed to be awaiting our homecoming. They are the happiest sign of spring.

    …and it will be September before I see them down here! In the mean time I am enjoying some blooms of Cooktown Orchids.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, you are going into autumn now. Those orchids are such a lovely shade of pink! Do you like the cooler weather? What are your autumn flowers? We have asters and chrysanthemums. Do they grow there?

  3. Awesome picture. This is the color I needed tonight!

    Love them & the shot!

  5. Maria F. says:

    Beautiful, warm colors. Very dreamy!

  6. We are packing up our house in Indiana and there is one daffodil braving the cold and blooming. I will enjoy it now, because I think they are a ways away in Wisconsin!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      You’re going from cold to colder! Bucking the trend, eh? 😉 I hope you and Choppy will love the new environs!

      • I think she’ll love the environs more when we get a house, rather than our apartment! And it was a beautiful day here. I think it was a tease, though, and it’s going to get cold (-ish) again soon.

  7. The daffodil has to be the definition of yellow!

    My daffodils are nearly finished for the spring. They always surprise me when the pop up, even I’m the one who planted them! I really enjoy being surprised this way.

    So Lovely!

  10. Life is better with spring cheer regardless of where we find it. Lovely photo. 🙂

  11. Robbie says:

    Just lovely:-) When I first saw this photo, I thought-WOW-Eliza has daffs-Mine are only a few inches above the soil line. then I read and found the daffs were from the market:-) I wonder if they will bloom in April. It has been odd the last few years, Global warming:-(
    Happy Easter this week:-)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Robbie. Yes, I did have to clarify the origin, lest folk think they came from my yard. At least you have a few inches up, mine are still slumbering beneath the snow! As to the weather, I try not to compare previous years, it only leads to worry and sometimes despair. The Great Wheel is turning and that is all I allow myself, if you know what I mean. 😉

    Gorgeous (as usual!) 🙂

  23. Sharon says:

    Ah, yes. So much to love here. Warm and sunny….I can almost smell them.

  24. A woman of action: If the daffies take too long to come up, you just go buy a bunch and bring them home to enjoy! What marvelous spirit! I’m so glad you have a vase of golden daffodils for Easter weekend, Eliza 😉 Giant hugs! ❤

  25. Happy sigh! These always bring a smile, don’t they? In your photo they glow so warmly.

  26. Absolutely beautiful! Perfect aperture for limited focus and great soft light.
