Yellow Trumpets of Spring

Last Thanksgiving we spent the morning planting 2500 daffodils, tulips and alliums (flowering onions y'all).

And last week the first daffodils began to bloom! I love the simple beauty of Ice Follies (yellow centers paired with white outer petals).

One of my fondest memories occurred when I was homeschooling my, at the time, 4 young kids. We snuck over to my best friend Jackie's home and planted tulip and daffodil bulbs through her landscape while she was away. We kept it a secret until Spring when bulbs began to emerge around her home. It was a wonderful surprise!

“She turned to the sunlight     And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor:     "Winter is dead.” ― A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young
