A touch of spring at the end of winter


In my pursuit of living bien dans ma peau (well in my own skin) I have been trying to embrace the little pleasures in life.  My husband brought these daffodils home for me a few days ago.  They were all tightly furled in their papery skins, but held so much promise of beauty.  This is the sight that greeted me at our table yesterday morning.  The sun was shining through the windows onto these bright, beautiful flowers.  Just had to share them with you.  Happy weekend everyone!

Fresh flowers add a lot to the happiness at home. They can change everything into positive. And I love these winter flowers (we see them in winter here). Guess what? Daffodil is the English meaning of my name!
Enjoy your weekend!

HI! Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

I love daffodils, at our last house I planted 400, all different varieties and I loved it. At this house, so far I've only planted 200. But I still love each and every 1 of them.

Gorgeous photo!

BTW, for maple syrup Oaks work just as well as Maples.

Your husband is a sweetheart to bring you flowers. Our daffodils are blooming in our yard now and they are so much fun to watch pop up. We plant more each year - some out in the open and some in the woods.
Thanks for brightening our weekend with flowers.

It's starting to warm up here in MN so I'm becoming more hopeful. Those daffodils are beautiful - ah! Le printemps! (Springtime!)

Isn't it great that springs finally arrived, it's my favourite time of year.
