[day 103 ... april 13]

Just a welcome sign of spring. I love seeing daffodils. Although crocuses are earlier, daffodils - to me - mean that Spring is really come after all. I mean, a crocus will sprout right through the snow, which is a wonderful trait. But daffodils wait until the ground actually starts warming up, and that's when we're on our way to sunshine and wading pools and fresh veggies and all that good stuff. So the daffodils are a real harbinger of the end of winter, for me, and it always cheers me to see them finally arrive.

These daffodils are in a field up the street from our house, and I just liked how they were planted with the grass and how they're framed by the dark fence.
