Winter Sunshine


'Just brought in some freshly picked vintage daffodils today...


...a little winter sunshine from my garden.  

Any time I start feeling the winter blues, all I have to do is remind myself of all the natural beauty that surrounds me.  


The beautiful and bright butter yellow blooms dancing in the crunchy fallen leaves and cool breeze always put a smile on my face.

These daffodils have been blooming in this garden for more than fifty years {when my husband's grandparents lived here}.  It amazes me that they continue to do so, since we do very little to nurture them.


We are hoping for one more bloom before daffodil season is over, like the ones above photographed and shown in my banner and some ruffly ones too, which we have planted in recent years.  Love those!

Happy Weekend

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

I'm a March girl, and always see daffodils blooming on my birthday. I think that's why I love them so much!
Hugging you xo

I love daffodils. They remind me of my grandmother because she always planted many varieties of bulbs. You should link-up to Fresh Cut Friday at Rose Vignettes because the flower of the month is the daffodil!

Beautiful daffodils! That is a long time for them to be blooming. The bulbs have been multiplying in order to keep on blooming like that. The rich loamy soil from the woods is probably the best environment for them! You could dig down and lift them out and split them up and have many more I would imagine! I've got at least another month before I'll see mine.

I adore vintage Daffodils. So did my Grandmother, we would sometimes rescue old varieties at abandoned farmhouses from the property of friends who shared our love of continuing the species. They are always the perfect promise of Springtime. :)
