We’ve Reached A Decision


Remember my post from a couple of weeks ago about jonquils vs daffodils? If you missed it, click here.

I didn’t know at that time if the sprouts popping up in my yard were jonquils or daffodils. But I had done some research to learn the difference. I just had to wait til they bloomed to be sure. 

And they’ve bloomed! Mine are daffodils.

One bloom per stem, the stems are rounded rather than slender,  and the blooms are not very fragrant.  But who cares about fragrance when we have spring blooms?

Speaking of spring blooms, aren’t pansies amazing?

These were planted last fall,  they were covered in several inches of snow just a few weeks ago and for all practical purposes, looked to be dead and gone. But after a few warm days, they’ve come back to life.  Maybe we could learn something from a pansy’s fortitude.

I can’t look at this sunny little bloom without smiling. “I’m just so happy to be here.”

So what’s blooming in your yard? Jonquils, daffodils, pansies?
