Daffers In The Snow

Our daffodils are in bloom, so I picked a few and brought them in to liven the place up. Here you see them against a backdrop of Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Hunters In The Snow, aka The Family Picture, so called because just about everybody in our family has a print of it.


Happy spring!

I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today about the book I’m reading, THE PERSIAN PICKLE CLUB by Sandra Dallas. Drop in and find out what a Persian pickle is!

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Your flowers look super.

    My daffies have come in, but I don’t recognize them from any years past. They are deep yellow with short orange trumpets. I can’t recall their growing here before. A strange spring, indeed.

      Daffs come up all kindsa crazy ways! It seems like every year we have some new variety. All deep yellow, short orange trumpets and pale yellow “mane”, huge, tiny… It’s COOL! 🙂

    Spring has yet to arrive where I live. We’ve had a good bit of snow with more on the way. It’s more like winter. x_x

      Here, too. By this time last year, the crocuses and daffodils were gone. I’m kinda lovin’ the long lead-in. 🙂 I wouldn’t, if we had snow, though. I am SO through with snow for the year!

      It’s kind of you to say so, Veronica. If you can teach anybody how to use that damn ribbon, I’m YOUR fan!

      Actually, we just shove them in the ground and let them grow as they will. Don’t you have daffodils in Australia?
