Daffy Down Dilly Springtime - Weekend Reflections


Spring has arrived early this time around.  A few weeks ago, I took this picture when we were threatened with some light snow and freezing temperatures.  The snow did sprinkle the ground and the dew froze.  Here you see our garden's Springtime Daffy Down Dillies resplendent in gorgeous frozen dewdrop earrings.  It didn't hurt these miniature daffodils one bit--they're in full bloom now.  What a spot of bright color they make on this gray, gray day.

For more wonderful reflections from around the world, be sure to visit James at Weekend Reflections.

Gorgeous springy green and yellow! Love the frozen dew drops, they makes the flower look so fresh.

How lovely to see Springtime's gifts. It will be a while before we see flowers here...still a lot of snow.

I love to see dew on daffodils. Our spring started off late but has since caught up and moved ahead a bit.

What a wonderful breath of springtime. I can't wait for it to arrive.

Thanks for the visit and the heads up on Guest Heart Thursday. I will give it some consideration. Perhaps I have something better in my archives.

It will be a while before we see bright yellow poking through the earth. Thanks for this lovely pre-view.

Oh, Beth. Thank you for the honors again. I deeply appreciate your generous support. I've been very busy the last couple of months and have not been able to blog.

Your miniature daffodils are divine. There are signs of spring in Bermuda too. We have had a very long winter (no snow or frost, naturally, but we have had near constant gales since November. The vegetation seems burnt to a crisp.)
