Daffodils and Driveway Art

Neighbor Joyce pointed out the green shoots of her daffodils days ago. The buds must have been swelling, but I didn’t notice them again until they burst open. Perhaps I needed a drum roll for drama, but that is not the nature of early spring flowers.

Dampness brought out a design on a driveway I pass each morning. I can see a couple of fun things there. A goofy owl was the first I saw and then two roadrunners on a branch. I’ll bet you can see other fanciful things.

I thought it was quite unusual that I ate lunch on the porch twice before the middle of February. Today it was even warmer — 68F (20C)! No sweater needed!

  1. I love the wild Dafs growing here and every where. They..the weather station, say we are two week ahead for Spring. Praying a cold doesn’t fly in to damage the young growth.


  2. Daffodillies, tulips and some crocus have appeared here, I love their energy and strength against the frost. There’ no way we could shed our sweaters in February though. 20C is a Summer temperaature as I’;m sure you remember from your time over here. I think I’m living in the wrong Country.

    1. I think it’s unusual to have such warm temps here in February. We will be back at the freezing point tonight, with a very slim chance of snow. The middle and eastern parts of the state are always warmer. Mountains can change things.

      Mountain hugs!

  3. Ours don’t usually show up until late March. However who knows with the crazy winter we have been having. I see that the trees are already thinking about future leaves. That is at least a month early.


  4. I saw the owl first, too. Then the birds. Flowers in Feb? Currrazzzyyy !!!!! You do have such a lovely porch. I’m glad you can enjoy it.


  5. Since I am over two weeks behind here, those Daffodils are done gone I’m assuming?

    I love Daffodils. We used to be able to buy them at our local grocery store for $1.00 for a bunch of ten. We’d get them every year for the house and I’d take some to work. I shudder to think what the Snowdrops look like – we had the ice storm a week ago Wednesday and we had a snowstorm with 5 inches of snow, topped off by freezing rain yesterday. The Snowdrops are like a Timex watch (hopefully)


      1. OK, thanks for trying – when you get a chance or sit to do your next post. Still no Daffodils on my walk this afternoon, just the Snow Drops looking perkier than me.
