Good Sunday morning, everyone! It’s forty-four degrees here today. That bright golden orb in the sky made it just comfortable enough to enjoy my second cup of coffee this morning on my deck, a pleasure I’ve not enjoyed since autumn. What a treat! After the coffee, I got myself out for a short walk this morning, as I’d spotted a spring thing or two from the car and wanted a closer look.
These snow crocuses were not what I went looking for, but a delightful bonus. I spotted two clumps of them springing up randomly in the lawn of a house around the corner and down the road from the Nest.
Actually, it’s a house I’m particularly fond of, thanks in no small part to the massive tree that grows in front of it.
Down the road from this house – next door, actually – was the object of my searching walk this morning. I’ve taken photos of this place before, as they have some lovely gardens out by the road, most notable hundreds of daffodils that bloom throughout the spring season.
There were also some heathers (I think that’s what those are) just winding down their blooming season, which offer some nice color in our still just starting-to-green landscape.
But it was the daffodils I came for. I spied them as I drove past yestereday. In previous years, I’ve had to pull over in the car and get out to take some shots. It’s kind of nice to live just around the corner this year, since it meant I was able to take my time getting the right shot. I look forward to following the progression of this show a little more closely this year.
Birds are singing like crazy today and it’s a beautiful day. I hope it’s a sweet day where you are, too!
EDIT: A little while later: I just surfed over to Lost in the Landscape, where James is featuring a bevy of purple beauties in his garden today (you should totally check them out) and learned that he was doing so as his participation in the Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, of which I had previously known nothing. Surf around and see some pretties! And it’s not just for garden bloggers, either! The GBBD happens on the 15th of every month (handy if you’re feeling guilty about missing the 12 of 12 yet again) and anyone can post pictures of whatever’s blooming in your world!
