One Perk Of Living Here

 Another round of cold temperatures will be striking again tonight, so for dinner we picked the lettuce that is growing in the bowl on the deck and then moved the bowl into the covered porch.
 This afternoon we spent time in the warmth of the sunshine on the front porch.  It was 75 degrees and to be honest.... we got hot!  The pups lolled around in the green grass of the front yard,
 and the daffodils were in full bloom.
 Well, who can resist cutting a few and bringing some of that yellow sunshine indoors for heaven sakes.
 Although the ones left outside will do fine in the cold temperatures tonight, or I would have cut more, 
they will however look a wee bit limp tomorrow.  Such hardy blooms they are!
 When we lived in the city in the southwestern U.S., I didn't have flowers that I could bring indoors to enjoy... we had three rose bushes, but they always struggled to look healthy.
One of the perks of living in Virginia.....
flowers for the soul in springtime.


  1. They are beautiful! Flowers here in Texas too but we are already moving on to summer flowers. :)

  2. Lovely! I wonder how my daffodils are doing right now under a foot of snow?!?!

  3. Happy "daffy" days . . .
    We are sixteen degrees here this morning.
    BUT . . . bright sunshine!

  4. Daffodils are such happy flowers...I need to pick some of mine for the house. xoxo
