Hope


“The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring.” - Bern Williams

In Atlanta we have barely reached freezing temperatures and the plants are in a state of confusion. I know it's not spring just yet but I saw a forsythia in bloom yesterday. I thought of all of you who are under more snow than I could possibly imagine and I know the below freezing temps are getting you down. It seems many of you are longing for warmer weather, a beach vacation, for the snow to melt and for the budding plants to peek their way through the soil and soon please. So I thought of you when I bought this tiny little daffodil. I know it would have been prettier photographed in the sunlight hours but alas it was dark when I brought it home from Trader Joes tonight and I couldn't wait to share a tiny bit of spring sunshine with you.

And just remember
“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.” - Hal Borland

Oh, how beautiful! Thank you for showing us this beauty of spring. We do have ridiculously cold weather on the way. I'll be thinking of this sweet little daffodil!

hope as spring... for me hope is rather winter... hidden yet working its gentle way, coaxing me on.

daffodils have always been happy flowers to me. you have captured it beautifully.

Surprisingly there have been a few daffodils blooming here on the village green since right after Christmas,

Lovely photo in any light.

Thanks for the mention of Trader Joes. It reminds me of when I was last there in December.
