From Buds to Blooms - Daffodils



Spring is showing more of its' face these past days.
I thought it would be fun to show you what can happen in a week...

   From buds to blooms : Daffodils

budding but still tight daffodils,
what color will they be?

Please ask if you would like to share or use my photos, thanks.

 Yellow daffodil bud just starting to smile

We have had 3 glorious days of weather! 2 in the low 70s with night times dropping to 40s, and today a high of 85! ☺
The darn weather man is forecasting back to cold and maybe snow before the weekend, grumbly mumbly. Typical Wisconsin spring weather.

yellow daffodil bud is opening,
hey what is that inside?
(sorry this photo should of rotated)

The sun came out and these daffodils sure perked up!
By afternoon this is what I saw...
 

 
White daffodils smiling with their pretty yellow cups.
Please ask if you would like to share or use my photos, thanks.

A few days later look who else opened up their smiling faces...


(darn it, this was suppose to be rotated too)
A big smiling yellow daffodil says Hello!

Here they are in all their glory, (never mind my mess)
a mix of buds and blooms,
popping their heads in naturalized grass right outside the lower level front door


Signs of spring make me happy!
How about you?

  8. I love Daffodils and Jonquils and have planted them by the hundreds, hoping they would naturalize, but all those outside of containers are swallowed and drowned in our sea of tall meadow grasses.

  9. It's already feeling like summer here. In the 90s starting tomorrow and no end in sight. Oh well we start spring in mid February most of the time so that's about right. Enjoy and I love your shots.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs. ☺
