Even on rainy days, the colors found in daffodils and narcissi
can almost substitute for sunshine.
I can't resist picking a bouquet of them
to bring indoors to warm the still-cold temperatures.
These hardy flowers come from one garden,
planted in full view of a huge window,
where they tempt me until I can no longer resist.
These are some of my favorite flowers,
probably because they are among
the first to bloom in the Spring.
I love their almost-transparent pastel yellow petals
and faded-looking yellow corona.
The daffodils stand out among the bright and pale
yellow double narcissi. Together, what a striking combination.
BTW, only 21 more days til Earth Day!
