Daffodils!




I'm very horticulturally challenged, but luckily my neighbor is not. She has some beautiful daffodils in front of her house. I've been watching them lately -- just waiting for them to bloom so I could take some pictures. Well, today was the day. I called her to ask if it was okay if I lurked around in her yard taking pictures today. I wish I had waited a while until the sun wasn't directly on them. I got a lot of blown-out shots, but I'm posting some of the better ones. I guess I can try some more tomorrow!
That bee in the flower counts as my animal for today!:)


Oh, spring must really be here!:) YAY!

Margaret--not only daffies but a BEE!! You hit the jackpot! Hurry spring!

Becky said...

I'm a plant killer too but somehow we still manage to get daffodils. Probably because I don't go near them except to photograph them. I can't believe you have them already!

These are so beautiful. Also a fellow plant killer. What is worse is that my parents are horticulturists. Try living that one down.

Ooh pretty! I miss my daffodils, another northern plant that can't be grown down here.
