February 23rd is a special day this year. It's the first day I buy daffodils. Daffodils have been my favorite flower since I was 7 or 8, I think. In my adult life, I have grown to appreciate others, namely irises, red & yellow (together) tulips, amaryllises, among others. But daffodils will always be in my top five.

Although I live in Wisconsin and the winters are long and usually stretch into late March/early April, the small pot of daffodils in my living room is a little reminder that there is an end to the cold and snow. It can't last forever; daffodils need to grow.

I open the blinds at night before I go to sleep so the flowers can see the sun, which rises hours and hours before I do.

And the next morning, they're almost all open.

They look like sharp baby birds

I love that I can look back at my blog entries from just about a year ago and see such similar and beautiful things that were in my life. In fact, when I listed my favorite flowers a second ago, I hadn't yet looked at these pictures. But in glancing through my blog entries and pictures, I found...

The irises

The charming cousin of the daffodil?

The red and yellow tulips

The amaryllis

And my lovely daffodils.

It's actually regular coffee, but it looks really creamy, doesn't it? Thanks for the comments - you're lovely!

Hi Fabulous! I was inspired by this post and my Mother who also bought Daffodils the other day to by myself some last night. They were all closed last night and this morning I woke up to most of the blooming!! Love them! hey are a lovely addition to the Kitchen table right now! :) Thanks for the idea.
