This is daffodil season here in northern Illinois. They are blooming prolifically alongside the roadways and in gardens. Last week, on the way home from picking up my daughter, I took a little detour to see if this roadside garden of daffodils was blooming. It was! Isn’t it gorgeous! I snapped a few pictures to show you this glorious garden of daffodils.
I thought there was only one variety blooming here (basic yellow), but on closer inspection saw tiny daffodils and cream/yellow varieties as well.
This was my very own little clump of daffodils ten days ago. Ugh, snow! Luckily, the snow didn’t kill my daffodils; they are fine and still blooming.
We are starting our second week of springlike weather. So happy, happy, happy! It is finally spring and oh, so wonderful outside. These are my daffodils today.
Truthfully, I think they liked getting snowed upon. They are still doing great ten days later.
The magnolia bushes didn’t like the cold snap much, but luckily they were just starting to bloom, so we didn’t lose many blossoms.
And, here is a photo from about a month ago that has nothing to do with daffodils or magnolias, sorry, but I wanted to share it anyway. When I was with my mom in January she gave me this puzzle. She saw it at the store and thought of me as it depicted many of my favorite things. Even though I am busy making things for our dolls, I finally had to put it together. It is the last (material) gift she gave me. Thank you, Mom!
I hope you all are having a great start to this new week. I know some of you had snow over the weekend, sorry about that. I hope it melts in a flash, so spring can come back… and stay!
Bye for now!
