Hoping

So, the kids were playing outside the other day, in our backyard and I saw these.

I was so excited!! I am hoping that they are daffodils. As of this morning, they still have not flowered, but I am watching!!!

Daffodils are my favorite flower. On my mission, my first winter there was very dreary. I had a horrible horrible companion, the city was gray, the skies were gray, I thought I just might never make it til spring. And then kids starting selling daffodil bunches on corners. You saw tons of them in the neighborhood flower shops. They were sprouting in everyone's garden. I realized that spring would come, and things would be much better!!! And my companion was transfered, I got a great companion, the sun finally came out, and the skies were blue again. There is nothing that does it for me at the end of every winter like a beautiful daffodil.

I tried to have some in a small pot in my house once. Yeah, bad idea. These ones grew up all by themselves, so I shouldn't be able to do too much damage to them. When they flower, you know I'll have some pictures!!!

Looks like daffodils to me! I have some that I forced inside (if you didn't know that you can get them to grow inside in the winter, google it), and that's what they look like. Enjoy!

Yep that's what they are alright. We used to go on family Sunday walks to pick them in the Spring. Brings a lot of memories of home. They grow wild too in PA when we lived there. Just beautiful after the cold.
