FOTD – April 17 – Daffodils by Owen Kraus

Owen took these with his phone, but it was a good day and the sun was out for a while. It has gone back behind the clouds now and it’s chilling down.

Now, it’s really — almost — spring. If you look, you can see the leaves for the daylilies and columbine. About three weeks and the flowers will all bloom. These last weeks of waiting are hard.

  1. Oh, I can almost smell the perfume just looking at the photos. I was told the hillside on our farm is covered with the daffodils now but just can’t get out there any more. Huge sigh!


    • I can barely manage the stairs from the ground floor to our “level.” It’s just 12 steps but some days it feels like Everest. The years — no matter what anyone says — are not just numbers. Double sigh!


  2. Spring? We are entering Autumn here which just proves that the world is not flat. Okay the world is flat and I’m just a conspiracy theorist spreading hate speech that the Earth is round and most of us just planet shame the Earth. Now imagine the stuff I could dream up if I was still in my drinking days. 🙂 P.S. I love spring and autumn, my favourite times of the year.


    • Flat or round, whose counting. Er, looking. Okay, flying. Have you read any of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels? Not only are they hilariously funny, but they all take place on a flat world.

      If it were up to me, we’d always be entering Autumn because spring is rarely more than one afternoon in May followed by heat, haze, and humidity — lovingly known as “the three Hs.” We are one of those places where you need an over coat before breakfast and air conditioning after lunch.
