Indoors~Outdoors



Amber daffodils drying—any normal person would have already tossed them into the trash.



Hardy outdoor daffodils coming along...


Oh yes, and there is the matter of this nasty old snowbank.

Love Vee

    1. Yes, that photo was taken this morning. But did you see the snowbank? And it's supposed to "do something" all week. The drying/dying daffodils were a gift from my daughter in February.

  2. Must be quite a thing to see your daffodils peeking up out of snow covered ground! They are so cheery.

  3. This reminds me of the first gift that Terry gave me. It was a tiny little terrarium with a little dried daffodil arrangement inside. I think I'll have to look for it now.

  4. Mine are blooming now and it does make me think Spring, but then I see your "nasty" snow bank and think, brrrrrrrr! XOXO

  5. Our snow has finally melted except for the huge piles by the curbs. I'll have to get out once it stops raining to see what coming up!

  6. Spring has definitely sprung here in California. Blossoms on all the trees, and buds coming up on all the other tree branches. I have a hard time throwing bouquets away as well...think it's still beautiful!

  9. Do you think that those gray, cold late winter days just before spring springs are the bleakest? I do. Hang on, dear Vee, with your springtime heart!

  10. The daffodils are SCREAMING 'Spring!' I can't imagine all that cold and snow.
    It is blue skies and sunshine here at home this morning. Chilly, too. I would say COLD except it really isn't when compared to YOUR part of the country. Spring IS coming!

  11. My daffodils came from the grocery store. It is just too hot here for them to *like* being in the earth. When yours bloom -- that means Spring is here ... right?!!!!! YeeHaw! (Note I'm ignoring the snowbank.)

  12. We had some warmer temps and rain over the weekend to put a huge dent in the snow banks here. But it's a soggy mess right now. Hopefully we'll be seeing something flowering real soon. And steady, warming temps. Can't wait to open windows for some fresh air!

  13. Well the snow is gone here but it has been constantly raining for the last 24 hours. But the sun has been shining and that makes for spring blooms and blossoms. I am still afraid we will have a heavy spring snow. I can remember some real doozies we have had in April.

  14. The snowbanks are melting here. Too fast. Now we have flood warnings.
    Thanks for the little burst of yellow. Much needed.

  15. Daffodils and snowbanks, there is a poem in there somewhere..... ;-) xo P.S. I fixed the photo from Sunday's post. I think it was funnier the original way, but I certainly understand.

  16. Snowbanks? What are they? We missed out on them totally this year. I think the prairie provinces took our share as well as their own. Enjoy your yellow blooms...as the last signs of winter melt away.

  17. Mine look like your outside ones right now. I hope they bloom soon!

  18. I'm not normal! I loved dried daffodils and do the same. I'm glad I'm not the only one!!!!

  19. Daffies! Oh how I love my daffier!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Stupid autocorrect changed "daffies" to "daffier". Mean old autocorrect. Pbbbtttt......

  21. When there is that much winter still outside, even dry daffodils sound hopeful ;)

  22. Daffodils poking their heads up already? Spring can't be far behind! I am curious to see what has been planted in my yards when spring arrives here. I have a feeling there isn't much, but I hope to be surprised.

  23. I'm hoping to see daffodils come up soon.

    We just had the last of the snow from the storm last week melt over the weekend. Soon... typical March weather now with it being warm over the weekend then a cold fron coming through today then warm next week, etc.

    Get enough of those warm fronts and we'll soon see daffodils!

  24. WOW your garden daffodiles are really coming along - not yet here.

    So pretty, I love them and deer hate them so they actually grow and stay a while here- the tulips last about an hour, haha.

  25. Oh I LOVE Daffodils! Soo pretty. Hope you enjoyed your day!

  26. Came by this evening to say Hi, and to say how much I enjoyed catching up.
    Hugs,

  27. I dearly love fresh spring daffodils, but I've also let them dry and both used them in winter bouquets and crumbled them up for their color in potpourri. I don't make either of these things anymore, but who knows? Perhaps someday I will again.

    And what a lovely vase.

  28. Such lovely blooms to welcome spring and more to soon arrive right in your very own yard! Nothing like that up north, but I just might see tulips and daffodils coming up here in Chicago as I get out on the town today.

    Those first blooms always renew that feeling of planting and caring for my flower beds.

  29. I remember putting the daffodils in a glass filled with food coloring to watch the liquid be drawn up into their little veins and changing the color...there is nothing quite like a daffodil that says Spring...unless its a Robin...I love your photos, you do such a great job, I am envious!!!
    hugs

  30. Spring's coming, the daffodils know it! That is a pile of snow. Perhaps the weather "something" will be rain and wash it all away. That's what's happening here this morning - rain, rain, rain.

    ReplyDelete
  31. We have Daffy's up too, but no blooms yet! I haven't seen any forsythia in bloom yet either, but Spring is coming....

    Today we have rain too...as the Amish would say "It's makin' down."

  32. Arrived back from the sunshine to the rain shine. It's fun to see those hardy plants poking through!

  33. Aren't daffodils just amazing! You wouldn't think with all that snow that you would see any growth.
