s p r i n g

white daffy down dillys in my favorite old ironstone mug
the first day of spring has come,
but only the birds seem to know it!
it's been chilly and frosty. Everything is in bud,but
We haven't one flower but for a few purple pansies blooming here...
but soon everything will burst into bloom all at once!
these tiny white daffodils are from my garden a few years back, but I love this
picture and it is so cheerful I thought you might like it,too.
Daffy-down-dilly came up in the cold,
Through the brown mould
Although the March breeze blew keen on her face,
Although the white snow lay in many a place.
Anna B. Warner ~ "Amy Lathrop"

Though Spring is a season that blooms from the earth, it is in our hearts that its beauty remains forever...
Your treasured picture of daffy down dillies is lovely.
May Spring soon beckon at your door.

A very happy Springtime to you Missus. Thank you most kindly for your fine post of this day.
I do fancy your lovely daffs, and precious ironstone mug. Both are a treasure, as surely you know.
May there be mild, sunshine days ahead for you and yours...J
