She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

– A. A. Milne

    How beautiful. I love it when these flowers open up and shown their face. It is spring when it happens. What a nice ray of sunshine.

    When we lived in Washington State – where your Dad graduated high school – there were huge fields that appear to run all the way to the Cascade mountains of jonquils and daffodils. You could buy buckets of those flowers for virtually nothing. I have never forgotten the sight of the rows and rows of color with the snow covered mountains in the background.
