Ready or Not

Spring is struggling to arrive in upstate NY. My daffodils bloomed overnight but the trees are still naked and bare. Today is almost balmy, next week is forcast to be cold and rainy.
Next week I will paint puzzles, visit the laundromat, and do my shopping. Warm temperatures will return (I promise, Stacy) but I'm not sure when.


  1. Your daffodils are beautiful!

    I don't have any. It seems all my bulb plants have been eaten by the dozens of squirrels that roam our grounds. That is the price paid for having many trees and bird feeders.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Awww - I was mentioned!☺
    What do you mean, "paint puzzles?" I do not have daffodils, but I see some growth in some of the annual ground cover left by the previous owner.
    Very encouraging!

  3. It looks like the next few days are in the 50's...I'll take it!

  4. I have one daffodil that comes up every year where I keep my garbage cans. Not a pretty place for a flower to show up...but up she comes every year. Since our home is over 100 years old...I wonder who planted her. There is also other evidence of it being once a garden.

  5. I'm glad your daffodils are blooming now too! Their bright, happy color is just what a person needs to know that sunny days are just ahead!
