First Daffodils of the Year!

So do you want to know what makes this Farm Girl happy?

Its Daffodils!!!

 I notice one little daffodil bud Sunday night and when I went to check on the pretty little yellow bloom today, I saw several more flowers.
The daffodils are a few weeks early this year and I certainly hope its signs of an early spring. Groundhog day is coming and I hope he says spring is fast approaching.

 The show is just beginning and it will be some time before all the daffies are in bloom, but oh the joy that can come from the first flowers of the year. They make me happy, bring a smile to my face, give hope that winters dreery days are coming to an end, remind me that its time to start seeds in the greenhouse, all the while bringing a sadness as I miss my sweet Grandmama. I always remember picking daffodils for Grandmama's birthday in February and its hard to believe that its been ten years since I did that last.
