In this part of the world, blooming daffodils are the first sure sign that winter is passing and spring is on it's way. In spite of everyting mother nature throws at them, we start looking for blossoms on the first warm day in the middle of February. Today was that day here, and as you can see in the picture below blooming time is very close. We're supposed to be well into the 60's all week, so I expect we'll see a rapid progression once they start.
By early March when they are at their peak, every fencerow, pasture and old homesite is covered in blooming daffodils. No matter where I've lived, the first flowers of spring have never failed to put a smile on my face. Hope they do the same for you, wherever you may be and whatever the season is at your house today.
