At my parents' home (which was built by my great-great grandparents for my great grandparents as a gift) I was blessed with having a great grandmother who adored the daffodil. She planted over 1000 bulbs behind her yellow farmhouse.
Far from the Big Fish 10,000 bulbs, but nonetheless every spring there is a breathtaking view of yellow from my former bedroom window (now Thurgood's bedroom).
Ahhh Spring - it's delightful how annually it continues to surprise me with it's wonderfulness. It has completely faded from memory how last year, we went through the same ritual of shedding the sweaters, opening the windows - hmmm, spring amnesia, I like you. We've loved the evening walks the recent weather has encouraged and yesterday it dawned on me that soon my little Thurgood will be 3.
Happy Easter to you and your families..and welcome Spring. It is so pleasant to meet you again.
