Our first day of spring here in Connecticut was simply beautiful! Clear blue skies and temps that hovered just below 70º. My mom and dad's first day of spring in Missouri? Not so much! Though their daffodils are far advanced from what we have to offer, all the ground was covered with snow, and their temperature closer to 35º. That's right, Missouri and most of the midwest had a spring snow and ice storm on the first day of spring! But...isn't it just beautiful?
Here are the same daffodils I posted just a few days ago. Amazing how much they have grown in just a few days! Of course, the rest of our week is supposed to be dreary, cold and rainy so when they decide to bloom is anyone's guess. (I have noticed, and Miss LaLa has gleefully pointed out to me, that there are daffs already in bloom all around our town, just not in my garden...YET!)
