We planted several dozen daffodil bulbs in November, much later than we had intended. So we didn’t know how well they would do this year. We missed out having our own blooms last spring because we were living in a rental home. I didn’t want to go through that loss two years in a row!
After much anticipation, our first daffodil bloom of the season and at our new Grey Havens came to life yesterday! I was so excited! In between the raindrops, I went outside and commemorated the event with this photo. I added a textured background layer to provide a dramatic effect.
I don’t have to look at the calendar. I know that spring 2011 has definitely arrived!
