Daffodils!!

Photobucket

Daffodils!...The "old-fashioned" kind ~ I haven't been out of town in over a week, and didn't realize that the "vintage" ones were already blooming along the county roads...I never fail to wonder how the seemingly random clumps came to be where they are (although sometimes it's obvious, around a long-abandoned homestead)...

I like to imagine who originally planted them ~ old-fashioned bulbs like these were handed down..."passed-along" to possibly a newly married home-maker of years ago...

At my Dad's farm, there were huge drifts of yellow "jonquils" as well as delicate, fragrant narcissuses at the top of the hill where a house had once stood. Right after the farm sold, I dug and dug one afternoon (in the hard, resistant gumbo!) ~ only taking the narcissuses, though ~ knowing that it was probably my one chance to bring some of them to my house in town, in the next county over. (The Narcissi bloom a little later...I will post some photos of them soon!)

I transplanted some daffodils last year from my late great-grandmother's abandoned garden. They are just now starting to bloom. Glad you got some from your Dad's farm while you could. I love those sentimental attachments.

Hi Anne, my you're up late, or early. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I think I might need you to come with me to the Lazyboy store. I've been looking around your blog and let me say.....WOW! I love everything. Your header is so sweet, your photography is beautiful and I've fallen head over heals with Max, Ruby and Warren.
