What a difference a day makes!

The first five daffodils popped into blossom yesterday, and today it reached nearly 80°F, and dozens more burst into bloom today.
Daffodils 104We’re supposed to have (possibly severe) thunderstorms tonight, and we really need the rain. If it comes, it will put the hesitant flowering plants on a fast track to waste no more time.

  1. It will all build from there….yippee

  2. Gorgeous signs of spring. :)

  3. Lovely shot. It is amazing how the plants bloom so fast.

  4. 80° and rain will do it. Still no daffs here, but we may get a thunder shower tonight around midnight.

      We had an inch of rain, and all the grass turned 5 deeper shades of green. Dandelions are now out, too. As soon as taxes are done, I’ll be back out there with a passion!

  5. How can we not invoke Wordsworth?

    I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of a bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company:
    I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.
