Ice Puddles and Daffodils

Crunching ice puddles is one of my all time favorite pastimes. It's something I have passed on to my children. When I went out to the garden today , this was not what I was hoping to find!

I planned to do a daffodil post for Easter thinking they would be open and gorgeous. These King Alfreds are gorgeous, but this is as open as they are at this point. It's like a cold, blustery day in March out there, even if the sun is shining. The Easter Bunny is set with his fur coat. The rest of us will just have to hang onto our bonnets, and wrap our coats around us. Like the daffodil we'll wait for a warmer day to open up.

My Daffodils just opened the other day. I know what you mean about the weather- hopefully the warmer weather will come and stay!

Hi, it's a very great blog.
I could tell how much efforts you've taken on it.
Keep doing!

We've been having a chilly start to spring in Chicago too. We had frost last night but it's warming up nicely. The daffodils opened fully just this morning - in the nick of time for Easter!

They are beautiful, as they are, and the delay from the cold will just extend your enjoyment of them. They're so bright and cheery!

Your daffs are beautiful, half-opened. I'm with Nancy: You'll just be able to enjoy them for longer! Happy Easter!
