My fall planting project, to create a swath of daffodils along the ditch by the road, was not nixed by all the snow. I dug the bulbs into an area that gets lots of sunshine and is clear of snow early and that's the saving grace for these courageous spurts bursting through the needles and the leaves. In most spots, I should add. There is one area by the stop sign that is still blanketed by snow; we might see those daffs in May!
We have the sunshine, now we just need a south wind to warm everything up.
Isn't this what we love, and long for, about spring? Hope. You can't help but feel optimistic on a day like today.
