I vividly remember when I first moved down to Tennessee. I left central Illinois and drove my car, loaded to the gills, on Saturday, March 5, 1977. I had a new job in Chattanooga and was going to start work on Monday. After living in the Midwest all my life, I was astounded to see that daffodils were already blooming!
So the first week of March always means that the daffodils should be peeking out down here in Tennessee to cheer us with their sunny blooms. The flowers this year have not let me down, and today is the first day of their blooms in our flowerbeds! I can’t wait for more to join these first brave little ones so that I can have some beautiful bouquets in the house.
