Spring Flowers

My husband surprised me yesterday with my favorite flower: daffodils. I love them because of the silly and old-fashioned name, because they’re bright and cheerful, and because of the lovely but not overwhelming scent. But most of all, I love daffodils because they tell me that even though we still have snow, somewhere spring flowers are blooming, and it’s only a matter of time before spring comes to Alaska.

A bouquet of daffodils = Happiness 


  1. I love daffodils. There's a nursery rhyme:

    Has come to town
    With a yellow petticoat
    And a pretty green gown

    I've heard them called 'daffa-down-dilly', as well. However you say them, they're my favorite spring flower. I bet your house is beautifully scented now!

  2. Daffa-down-dilly - so cute. The house does smell like spring.
