Walked out to get the mail and noticed daffodil sprouts all over the place. That's always such a heartening sight to me.

I'm sitting here waiting for the big snow storm to hit tonite/tomorrow, possible 2 feet of snow.

For me, that would be sometime in July.

My world is white.

Definitely a good weekend to stay inside up there. We are going to catch mostly a lot of rain on Saturday with maybe an inch of snow Saturday night/Sunday morning. But they are asking people to stay off of the roads on Sunday as there will be icy spots where the rain has frozen and it may not be melting. So I've already told my wife that I won't be visiting her at the hospital rehab that day. I'm just kicking back and watching football.

Totally agree. Daffodils are my favorite flower -- they just seem to be so "happy" and a sign that spring is here. I also associate them with Easter, which I loved as a child. When we moved from Ohio to SoCal when I was nine, that was one of the probably hundreds of things I hated about SoCal -- no daffodils.

You could try keeping a few bulbs in the freezer until February or so. I used to live in Redondo Beach, and I knew people who did that.

Just FYI, I have lived in Colorado since 1986 (except for three years in Maine), and there are plenty of daffodils around my neighborhood. YAY! (Btw, I lived in the Torrance/Redondo Beach area from 1984-86, and the community was good then, but I understand that the area has changed a LOT since then.)

On our way to town, we pass an old falling down house. All around it, in the Spring, there are loads of different daffodils. We always enjoy driving by as we really like flowers.

I planted some mixed tulips and hyacinths that my wife wanted, out front a couple months ago. Keeping my fingers crossed that they come up and bloom.

There's just something so reassuring about seeing trees budding and sprouts popping up through the ground.



It's been a really rough few months, but seeing those sprouts is a reminder that winter passes and spring does arrive sooner or later.



Also, this morning an old song popped up on my play list. I haven't heard it in 20 or so years, I didn't even realize I had this on my play list. Now I've been playing it all morning because I love the lyrics



"I think it's gonna be all right

YEAH the worst is over now!
The morning sun is shining like a red rubber ball!"
