Farewell Winter ...

Spring is making an entrance this evening. And I think one of the best things about it is seeing daffodils. For me, they look like happy creatures who are anxious to enjoy the sunshine and blue skies, without needing their hats, mittens, or scarves. Even when there are still some cold days, daffodils are giving us their guarantee that other flowers will be popping up shortly with their own bright colors.

 
"Autumn arrives in the early morning,
but spring at the close of a winter day."

I love the daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, crocuses, and scilla of spring!

I think Daffodils are my favorite flower because they're the first sign of spring. They really give me hope.

Great pic. No daffodils here yet but the crocus are coming up in the neighborhood.
