Spring is Back!

After one monster of a winter, spring has finally returned. The 4-foot snow drifts are melting, melting. And in their absence are bulbs already pushing up out of the ground. Snowdrops are blooming right now in our shade garden. And the daffodils are 5 inches tall, budded and ready to pop. A couple warm days of sun and our yard is going to be ablaze in sunny blooms. A big sigh of relief!

I've been thinking about daffodils a lot. Wishing for them. And writing about them too. Read about the 10 Top Daffodils for the Midwest in Midwest Living magazine. And although you can't plant bulbs right now, you can buy little pots of 'Tete-a-Tete' and other small narcissus in garden centers. There's nothing more cheering!

  1. It was so fun to read your article in Country Woman, I have soooo missed reading your entries from Country Home and it was as though I was catching up with an old friend!

    I checked my new daffodil garden just last night while I was out trying to teach our new puppy how to play catch. Nothing up yet, daffodils are so one of my most favorite flowers.
