My earliest flower is always my earliest variety of daffodils. I love them because they bring early color but also because it reminds me that spring is really just around the corner for my area of the United States -
I have had a bit of a sinus headache all week – allergies already? I don’t know but Mike is bothered also – I wish I could shake it off. I took a walk around the yard earlier to get some air and hoped it would help clear the head – it didn’t but I had my phone in my pocket so while I was picking up some dead branches in the yard I also stopped to take some photos and clear off some of the dead leaves from the daffodils – some are a bit yellowed right now but they will turn green now that the leaves are off of them.
I have some buds already on some of them.
I don’t know if you can see the hanging part of this hanging pot sticking up out of the leaves? In the very late fall I decided to put my two hanging ferns up against the workshop and cover them thickly with leaves and see if I would have my ferns alive this spring.
Uncovered to check and covered them back up again - I can see some green! hopefully they can make it through February and March and I will uncover them and hang them back up – they might just make it.
