The sun was shining this morning! The beautiful azure sky provided a lovely backdrop for the skeletal tree branches gently swaying in the wind. But it was cold! After nice warm temperatures a few days ago, the rain and wind blew in cold weather again. Except for checking on the seedlings in the greenhouse and re-filling the bird feeders I didn't venture out today.
But when I did venture out to fill the feeders I was greeted by our first daffodil bloom of the year! There she was, a lovely golden beauty, "fluttering and dancing in the breeze." She kept her head down so as not to lose her hat, I think. She was alone, but was surrounded by several fat buds ready to burst open and join her any day now. On this date last year we had snow, and we may get some more this year, but for right now, I'll take any sign of spring I can get, so am very grateful to the daffodil.
